Parker wrote. Parker himself wrote nearly 70 books, but his characters are so popular his series continued even after his death in By the end of the first chapter, I realized two truths: the book has no modern technology cell phones! By the end of chapter one, Parker sets up what seems like a simple case: find the wife, urge her to return to her husband and kids. Of course, this ends up anything but a simple missing persons case, and by the end of chapter three, Spenser thinks he might be in over his head.

Shepard has a visit from Hawk, a freelance enforcer. Hawk and Spenser go way back to their boxing days. As an aside for trivia buffs: Promised Land is the first book Hawk makes an appearance. I hired you to find my wife. Not yours. You owe Powers money? I want you looking for my wife, not peeking into my books, you know? I know how it goes. This time Hawk came and talked to you, pleasantly enough, spelled out how much you owed and how far behind you were on the vig and when you had to pay it by.

And then I came and he said goodby politely and he left. Hawk means it. Hawk is a bad man. I don't really have much to say about this book. I didn't hate it, but I also didn't love it. It was just kind of midway for me. I honestly think it may have been the characters that put me off so much. Detective Lavender is sort of disagreeable, yet at times he breaks out of his shell a bit. His story with Magdallena drove me absolutely insane.

It was really an unnecessary plot line that didn't do much for the story overall. It just added some sexual tension that made me feel a bit I don't really have much to say about this book. It just added some sexual tension that made me feel a bit uncomfortable, really. Woods was okay. He made the story flow a little better for me, as I had a better understanding of his attitude throughout the book.

The mystery itself was entertaining, but it was also extremely obvious. Overall, I really enjoyed the world building and the tiny details of the book. The writing is very descriptive and allows you to really step into the world.

Lavender Blue Murder

The overall tone of the book was dark and mysterious, yet it didn't absolutely amaze me. It just fell sort of flat, and unfortunately I don't plan to pick up another book in this series. Aug 09, Cathleen rated it liked it Shelves: reads , historical-mystery. The Heiress of Linn Hagh had appealing features for a lazy summertime read: a locked-room mystery, a missing, possibly abducted heiress, her miserably mean siblings, a 19th century northern England setting, a castle, hints of the supernatural, and the lean, cerebral detective called up from London to solve the case.

I enjoyed the premise, and the novel sustained my curiosity, for the most part. Several of the minor characters, like Constable Woods and the maid Anna, were 2. Several of the minor characters, like Constable Woods and the maid Anna, were well-developed and memorable.

The writing needed further editing, in spots, as well. It was bogged down by redundant adjectives and unnecessary, tangential exposition. This was the first in a series, so subsequent novels may be more polished. Overall, it was a light, entertaining read for a summer evening.

The writing was excellent, the plot was good, and the characters came to life and made me want to know more about them. I'm looking forward to reading the upcoming books. Sep 30, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: challenge , did-you-hear-that.

I listened to the audio version of this story and enjoyed it. It was a decent mystery which unfolded at a good pace and was Detective Lavender and his friend, Constable Woods, are dispatched to Linn Hagh to investigate the disappearance of Helen a young heiress , who disappeared from her locked room one night.

It was a decent mystery which unfolded at a good pace and was logical. Lavender is a good detective and an interesting character, but I liked Woods a tad better. I can't say I was surprised at the end, but I did feel entertained the entire time.

Not sure if I will continue the series or not. Sometimes I like your average mystery and this was one of them, thus the average rating. Sep 10, Ctgt rated it liked it. Pretty good historical mystery Shelves: own , historical-fiction , series , historical-mystery.

Detective Lavender and Constable Woods-what a dynamic team! Fallen ash and sycamores gaped like huge, twisted, moss-coated serpents around them. Fascinated, Woods watched the charade unfold before his eyes. I was and am definitely into this book, and I am looking forward to reading the next mystery in this beguiling series. Well done, Ms. Apr 22, Jessica Andersen rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery , first-in-series , historical-mystery , detective-police. Detective Lavender bears striking resemblance to Sherlock Holmes, but with a little more humanity to him. And Constable Wood is an admirable sidekick and Watson stand-in.

The basic mystery here is how a young heiress disappeared from her locked bedroom in the middle of the night, leaving no trace. I read another person's very nitpicky one-star review, and will admit that I have read books that hit me the The Heiress of Linn Hagh by Karen Charlton was a fun gothic mystery set in Regency England. I read another person's very nitpicky one-star review, and will admit that I have read books that hit me the same way, one thing bothered me at the beginning and then everything else just stands out that much more until it drives you crazy.

I did not have that experience with this book. The Heiress of Linn Hagh is a light quick read, with characters similar enough to Holmes and Watson that you feel at home in the story right away. I didn't find the central mystery or the various twists and turns to be that surprising, I had most of it figured out well before the reveal. However, I generally prefer a mystery that I can figure out to one where the answer is completely out of left field that you could never have figured out based on the clues you were given.

I felt like the author had a fairly light touch with her clues. I have read others where the author all but beats you over the head with the clues to the point that you are yelling at the characters for having not figured it out yet. This was a fun story and I will probably try the next in the series as well. I would recommend this one for fans of historical mysteries. It started as a locked room mystery but soon became so much more. In a way it's almost more gothic than traditional historical mystery, including a missing heiress, gypsies, a madwoman, a beautiful Spanish woman and family secrets.

Anna was probably the most well-drawn of the non-police characters, and although this did include enough details to keep me interested I felt it lacked most of the depth that authors like Anne Perry offer, and the references to previous events made it feel like a It started as a locked room mystery but soon became so much more.

Anna was probably the most well-drawn of the non-police characters, and although this did include enough details to keep me interested I felt it lacked most of the depth that authors like Anne Perry offer, and the references to previous events made it feel like a mid-series book rather than the first. The repeated plot-based backtracking was a little awkward, though thankfully it ceased quickly, but the overly-varied dialogue tags continued throughout and made it feel like the author was sitting there with a thesaurus I got tired of people who grovelled, whined, sighed, retorted so overall it didn't quite gel for me.
