" A Demon Summer makes the case that Malliet may be the best mystery author writing in English at the moment (along with Tana French). She's certainly the most entertaining," raved The Cleveland Plain Dealer about the fourth Max Tudor Mystery.

Agatha Award-winning author G. M. Malliet has charmed mystery lovers and cozy fans everywhere with her acclaimed English village mysteries featuring handsome cleric Max Tudor, a former MI5 agent.

Now, in The Haunted Season , something sinister is stirring at Totleigh Hall, the showcase of the English village of Nether Monkslip. Usually, the Lord and Lady of the manor are absent--high tax rates, it is murmured with more than a trace of envy, force them to live on the continent for most of the year. But Lord and Lady Baaden-Boomethistle have been in residence for some weeks now, and the villagers are hoping for a return to the good old days, when the lord of the manor sprinkled benefits across the village likefairy dust. Max Tudor also looks forward to getting better acquainted with the famous family that once held sway in the area. But a sudden, macabre death intervenes, and the handsome vicar's talent for sorting through clues to a murder is once again called into play in this charming and clever novel.

On the whole I have enjoyed the Max Tudor series. The characters are interesting and the plots well devised. What I have found really irritating throughout the series are the ridiculously OTT names the author has given the aristocracy in all her books, while choosing more normal names for lesser characters. There were also some cringeworthy spelling errors which are down to editing I would think (or hope). Good reads but fairly forgettable.
