Book Review-A Study in Stone: A British Mystery (The Devonshire Mysteries Book 1) Michael Campling

Monday, March 29, 2021

Unlike most mysteries there are no current murders or thrills a minute. This is a traditional British mystery which looks for clues a step at a time!

A stone slab has caught the attention of two unlikely friends while visiting a restaurant because that particular place had the best coffee! It does not make any sense-nor does the story the proprietor tells them. They have to get to the bottom of this.

How they manage this takes a bit of driving around, reading up on the internet and a bit of luck as well.

They do uncover the truth but you will have to read this to find out what it is!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Dan Corrigan wants to disappear.

Burnt out by the pressures of corporate life, he escapes to the countryside. But when he least expects it, a chance discovery draws him into a compelling mystery.

An ancient legend, a coded message on a stone slab, and a secret concealed in a country manor house: these are the clues that take Dan on a journey into the past, delving deeper into a hidden history.

But reputations are on the line, and there are those who want the mystery to remain unsolved. Uncovering the truth might give Dan the confidence to rebuild his life, but if he fails, there’s no going back.

Can you solve this very British mystery?

Find out when you join Dan as he chases down the clues in A Study in Stone.

The Devonshire Mysteries are traditional British mysteries in a modern-day setting.

These are cosy mysteries (or ‘cozy mysteries’ for Dan Corrigan’s trans-Atlantic fans). There’s a touch of dry humour and the stories pay homage to the legacies of Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle. You’ll always find a mixed bag of suspects, plenty of clues and a few red herrings, so that you could have solved the mystery if only you’d put two and two together.

Amateur Sleuth Dan Corrigan is quick-witted, driven and far too clever for his own good. Fortunately, his friend and neighbour, Alan Hargreaves, is the perfect foil for Dan's intellect. Loyal, dependable and with a knack for detailed research, Alan keeps Dan on track, and together, they make an effective team.
