“I can see this book translating well to the little screen as a series like Line of Duty maybe. There’s enough substance in it. And I think that was part of its appeal – there was a familiarity about it. Not in the sense that it was predictable or formulaic but, again paradoxically, given that it is a crime story, there was a subtle and underlying warmth that pervaded the book.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the library to get my hands (no blood) on some more Inspector Carmichael stories.”
