Detective Chief Inspector Robin Bright and his partner, deputy headteacher Adam Matthews, have just consigned their summer holiday to the photo album. It’s time to get back to the daily grind, and the biggest problem they’re expecting to face: their wedding plans. Then fate strikes—literally—with a bang.
Someone letting loose shots on the common, a murder designed to look like a suicide, and the return of a teacher who made Robin’s childhood hell all conspire to turn this into one of his trickiest cases yet.
Especially when somebody might be targeting their Newfoundland, Campbell. Robin is used to his and Adam’s lives being in danger, but this takes the—dog—biscuit.
Adam and Robin find themselves right in the middle of another mystery, but this one comes a little too close to home. Not that that hasn’t happened before, but this time Campbell comes way too close to being in the cross fire and that is totally unacceptable to both Robin and Adam. This time it’s personal from the beginning – even before there’s a connection between the mysterious murders and a teacher who made Robin’s life miserable in grade school.
There were a lot of “connections” in Old Sins, some more obvious than others. I can honestly say that I had no idea exactly “who” did “what” to “who” and “why”… until I was actually supposed to… The mystery was only part of the story though and that’s just one of the reasons why I love this series. (Did I already mention that?)
Old Sins is definitely not the end of the Lindenshaw Mysteries series… at least I hope not. After all, readers still have to make sure that Adam and Robin finalize their HEA. 😉
