Felony & mayhem press, new york. Death in Disguise. No one in the village of Compton Dando was surprised to hear of the murder up at the Manor House. A Life with True Intent. Through the Magic Lantern. They were a funny lot up there. A most peculiar lot. Weird. Mr and Mrs Bulstrode were almost the only locals to have a thread of contact with the spiritual community (so called) in the big house. She pushed the parish magazine determinedly through the letter box once a month. He delivered a single daily pint of milk.

Critics place Caroline Graham among writers of classic mysteries like Agatha Christie. But this story is so dense with rich characterizations as to seem a new genre. Hugh Ross's performance adds luster to an already sparkling book

Critics place Caroline Graham among writers of classic mysteries like Agatha Christie. Graham nests her murder plots in gentle social satire; this one pokes affectionate fun at the fringes of mysticism and New Age cults. Hugh Ross's performance adds luster to an already sparkling book. His narration sounds delightfully spontaneous, and his mildly exaggerated vocal characterizations (including a bravura turn as the Valkyric cello-playing priestess) perfectly match the author's style. Wonderfully written, wonderfully read! .

She and Danton were enclosed inside a black faux marbre horseshoe supported by a cluster of grave-faced caryatids. flasks, bottles-and metal-lipstick cases, aerosols, tins. The images in this small space, so grossly given over to a worship of the vanities, were multiplied a hundred times by the judicious arrangement of mirrored screens set at angles in the walls. As his client rose, Danton moved away, hands lifted in a curious Kabukiesque manner

DEATH IN DISGUISE: Inspector Barnaby written by Caroline Graham. The Lodge of the Golden Windhorse is a new-age commune/cult and a subject of gossip, ridicule and suspicions for the local village. A bit satirical look at the religious community with as brilliant as usual in-depth analysis of the human nature. Sounds a bit serious but in fact it is a book that is difficult to put down. And, of course, Tom Barnaby and Gavin Troy in top form. Highly recommended! قراءة التقييم بأكمله. بعات أخرى - عرض جميع المقتطفات. Death in Disguise: Inspector Barnaby

When a death up at the Elizabethan manor house is announced to the village, few are surprised, for it is home to a bunch of New Age oddballs. James Carter's mysterious death is deemed to have been an accident. But it is not long before Chief Inspector Barnaby is summoned to the commune to investigate a cold-blooded murder.
  • Global Progression
I love the Inspector Barnaby series, but to be honest I almost quit reading this one about halfway through. Mainly, this was because I read mysteries mostly FOR the mystery. Of course the characters need to draw me in, but what I like most is the puzzle, & the search through the labyrinth of clues & truth & lies, to the discovery of the perpetrator. And I love spending time with the good inspector. So, when I had read 50% of the book, and still the crime that would bring in the inspector had not occurred, I almost gave up. However, I've never left a book unfinished, & I'm grateful I kept on. When it happened, I was expecting the crime, but the ins & outs and discovering the full scenario were very enjoyable. And of all the books so far, this one finally had some peripheral characters that I genuinely liked, which is sometimes lacking in these novels. The ending was unexpected, which is always a good thing. If you have the patience to get through the first half of the book, that patience will be rewarded. Highly recommended.

Author Caroline Graham is at her wittiest and most scathing in presenting the characters of this ‘closed community’.
A great read. ****
  • Skiletus
To be quite honest, I did not enjoy this book as much as the first two.......maybe it was the subject matter, I am not sure. I do think that Caroline Graham is very clever in making the least person suspected to end up being the murderer, but I felt that with this book a lot of it's content was not necessary........just put there to make the book longer. However, her research into different topics is very good.
  • Togor
Caroline Graham is up to her usual compelling, literate fashion, with plot and sub-plots interwoven and spiced with Shakespearean quotes. If there is a drawback, it is that with so many stories to connect, the ending may seem anti-climatic, as one winnows down the candidates to the only logical one who could have timed the murder to his or her purpose, and then finishing with "afterwards," or epilogues, of the characters. It is not the same problem as Homer had with Achilles or Hercules, but then he was an oral poet and used epithets to keep the memory alive. Graham has an epic mystery of sorts, to handle, but generally does a spot-on job, as with her previous book, "A Place of Safety," which I am also reading.
  • Rigiot
Her first in the Chief inspector Barnaby series irritates at times, variable character development, staccato plot lines, absolutely awful domestic confrontations, you name it, the writer's pitfalls are all fallen into. (Her sentences, however are much more succinct than this.) You like the victim, wish it were one of the many other objectionable characters that got 'topped', and long for more US Cavalry action from Barnaby himself. And then there's the growing suspicion we have a chic-flick book here. And then there's the breath defying ending....Wade through the sometimes turgidity, reader, it's worth it.
  • Linn
"Slow starting" is an understatement. It takes half the book before the first person is done away with. Although some of Graham's books start this way, this book is way over the top. The first part is a semi-interesting character study of people in the typical small English village, but hardly a mystery. She takes WAY too long to get the story set up. As this is #7 in the series, I wonder if she was getting bored with Barnaby. Interesting characters but not particularly a good mystery.
  • Akinonris
Strange book. Inventive use of colorful characters, though most were two dimensional. The story draws the reader in, but first the reader must slog through lengthy, action-free description. Barnaby first appears at the book's midpoint and investigates only infrequently. Odd, unsatisfactory ending. I missed Ms. Graham's customary use of centering Barnaby in both the story and detection. Was this novel an experiment? If yes, then I urge her to return to her original structure and employment of Barnaby.
If you want a definition of literal padding , read this book !. This style of writing I think is called kitchen sink where the author thinks the reader would be interested on what the detective has for breakfast and how often he stops off for a beer during his work and the domestic details of his assistant :never Caroline Graham again !!
