This wasn't my favorite.

Hardcastle's Quartet: A police procedural set at the end of World War One (A Hardcastle and Marriott Historical Mystery) - Graham Ison

This book read like an episode of Law and Order.  You start with a dead body, followed by the investigation,  then an arrest,  trial and punishment.  Complete with twisty last second revelation. 


As such it wasn't bad.  But the investigator,  Hardcastle,  was not very likable.  I felt no real connection with the him or his trusty sidekick of an assistant.  I'll be passing on future installments.
