Surprise! Surprise! I have visited Flaxborough again and you just never know what will be happening here. I knew about 5 paragraphs in that this was going to be an original story with a very curious mystery. Young women in Flaxborough are being attacked by old men on the streets and in the parks. Initially, Inspector Purbright and Sergeant Love assume that they are looking for one person who is a repeat offender but is that the whole story? Maybe, maybe not. And then, while Sergeant Love is investigating Samson’s Salad he finds Miss Teatime at the helm of the venture. What would Flaxborough be without Miss Teatime? Colin Watson has once again pulled out all the stops with this mystery.
Can you tell that I just can’t get enough of this series? I just love how clever the stories are and the quirky characters. But Inspector Purbright is always there to bring order back to the wacky world of Flaxborough. I found the imagery in this one to be so hilarious I just couldn’t stop reading. This series continues to be the perfect place to tickle your funny bone and your brain all in one sitting. This is book 6 and if you haven’t picked up one of the books in The Flaxborough Series yet, what are you waiting for?
