Not the best Midsomer book I have read I preferred the Killings at Badger s Drift The tv version of this one was much better There wasn t just the one murder with the attempt on Essley s wife The romance between Deirdre and David was better played out Midsomer Murders often plays better on tv. I have enjoyed all of the books in this series very much and farthan I expected to I grew tired of the Midsomer Murders TV series a long time ago, but the books are actually very different in tone and character from what the series became They are very good novels of character with crime as their plot drivers.In Death of a Hollow Man, Barnaby is dragged along to an amateur dramatic performance and ends up investigating a dramatic death However, at least the first third of the book is I have enjoyed all of the books in this series very much and farthan I expected to I grew tired of the Midsomer

drivers.In Death of a Hollow Man, Barnaby is dragged along to an amateur dramatic performance and ends up investigating a dramatic death However, at least the first third of the book is scene setting and the establishing of characters, and it is this which makes the books such a pleasure for me She writes very well with a fine understanding of her characters and their motivations and there is genuine psychological insight here She paints them with insight and a penetrating wit, making this farthan the collection of rather hollow stereotypes which sometimes go to make up the characters in the TV programmes It is this which makes the books so worthwhile she paints some scathing and sometimes very funny portraits but others with genuine compassion and depictions of goodness, all of which I found very realistic.As always with Caroline Graham, the plotting is very good and she weaves a beguiling spell which hooked me in It s quite a long way from the slightly twee whodunit feel of the TV series especially in the character of Sergeant Troy who is no loveable sidekick but a lecherous, ignorant bigot with a strong line in unfunny, unpleasant jokes.The prose is a pleasure to read, with plenty of pithy phrases it carries you along very nicely without ever getting in the way of the story I can recommend this very warmly as a very good, involving novel of character as well as being a very enjoyable crime mystery I really enjoyed this reread with the Reading the Detectives group I enjoy Midsomer Murders on PBS, based on Caroline Graham s books, but had forgotten how cleverly snarky

building tension that will obviously end in a murder it s just a question of which awful, shallow character will be the victimNo spoilers, but a very enjoyable murder mystery with snarky, clever dialogue, great characters and a very likable detective in Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby I look forward to rereadingin this series Just can t this is absolute tripe The author merely waffles on and on about her boring characters for pages and pages They were still there doing and saying boring and irrelevant things when I left them somewhere around page 70 I don t even know who got murdered, let alone who murdered them, because it hadn t reached that stage yet But I can make an educated guess It s the author trying to murder the reader by boring them to death Ha, I didn t fall for that narrow escape Oh, I should never watch the dramatization of a novel if I m planning to read it, because I actually knew the identity of the killer before I started I love the Inspector Barnaby murder mysteries dramatized on the Biography channel, and they have renewed my interest in Caroline Graham s books which have just been sitting here, unread, on my shelves for years.So on to this book who would like it Anyone who s followed the series on television would enjoy it anyone who likes British mysteries w Oh, I should never watch the dramatization of a novel if I m planning to read it,

Graham s books which have just been sitting here, unread, on my shelves for years.So on to this book who would like it Anyone who s followed the series on television would enjoy it anyone who likes British mysteries would also like this one.The setting is the Causton Amateur Dramatic Society CADS the group is currently putting on a production of Amadeus The dramatis personae include the director, Harold, who is a twit and has an over inflated sense of his worth to the project or any project by CADS for that matter , the leading man, Esslyn, who is quite wealthy but yet hated by everyone for his snobbery and pompery his wife Kitty, a young 20 something Esslyn s first wife and her husband Tim Avery, a gay couple who rent out a room to Nicholas, a young student who desperately wants to succeed in the theater Deirdre, the girl Friday who does pretty much everything Harold tells her even though he makes ridiculous demands, and who is ridiculed by many of the cast members and David and Colin Smy, a a young man and his dad It seems that on opening night, one of these people switched razors from the prop tray so that Esslyn, as Salieri, cuts his throat with a real razor in front of the audience at the end of the play.Barnaby, who is in the audience because his wife is a member of CADS, takes charge immediately, along with his gripey, complaining sergeant, Troy But it seems that pretty much everyone has a motive to kill Esslyn, so getting to the bottom of this mystery is tougher than it seems.Recommended for those who enjoy a mix of cozy police procedural it might be good to start with book 1 before reading the second I think there are fewer installments in the Chief Inspector Barnaby series than there are episodes of Midsomer Murders, but I ll be glad to get to what there are This one is set with a local theater group who is rehearsing for Amadeus As I never saw the film, and don t really know the story of Mozart, I might have had a better mental foundation I am not a complete philistine I have listened and liked his music, though you might have to tell me I m hearing Mozart as opposed to Bach or Be I think there are fewer installments in the

tell me I m hearing Mozart as opposed to Bach or Beethoven Early on, I was cheering for one of the characters to be the murder victim Another couple of chapters in and I saw another candidate Maybe one will be killed by the other, I thought Wouldn t that be justice served It was past the one third mark before the murder takes place The entire cast and stage crew are suspects, somesuspect than others, of course Barnaby and Troy do their interviewing and nothing makes sense Nothing, as in why the setting, who had motive and opportunity.I like how Graham goes about giving us fully fleshed characters Some areso, of course, but even those who get less page time are real enough My biggest quibble with the whole thing is the Barnaby s wife, Joyce, is part of the theater company I had a bigger leap to suspend belief in that it seemed obvious he had a huge conflict of interest This, of course, wasn t mentioned.I enjoyed this, but it doesn t live up to my top rating for the genre The Detectives group will reading the next in the series in September and I look forward to it .DOWNLOAD ♩ Morte em Palco ♽ Todos os atores adoram um bom drama e os membros da Causton Amateur Dramatic

is rehearsing for Peter Shaffer s Amadeus and Joyce Barnaby, wife of Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby, has a small part in the production along with being wardrobe mistress Her husband is helping with painting the scenery But relations between the actors are not all they might be and Harold Winstanley, the director, is putting people s backs up and is as usual very full of himself Tensions rise as the first night approaches leading to a headline performance though not for the reasons which might have satisfied Harold s dream of the lime light.Tom Barnaby finds himself with a difficult case of murder to investigate He knows all the suspects and the victim and at first thinks this may give him an advantage but he soon realises it just complicates the issue and he can t see people as they really are I found this book absorbing reading because the plotting is excellent and the characters well drawn I found the motivations convincing and the whole thing kept me guessing until almost the end I worked out who had done it bit not how or why.This is the second book in the author s Tom Barnaby series and it is even better than the first, in my opinion I enjoy the touches of humour and the love hate relationship between Barnaby and his sidekick DS Troy with his overt prejudices and off colour jokes I like the small town background where many things appear to be out in the open and yet it is all too easy for people to misinterpret things they have seen and people they know I recommend this series if you like your crime novels in the classic mould with not too much on the page violence and bad language This is the second in the Tom Barnaby series, and the second or third time I ve read it The first in the series didn t hold up that well, so I was nervous when I began this

Barnaby and I enjoy Graham s writing Sergeant Troy is, I suppose, a product of the time not to say there isn t still a great deal of misogyny and homophobia but I find his character very distasteful Graham doesn t write Troy as a very sympathetic character, but I d like to see Barnaby call him out on his bigotry Of course, most of it is unspoken by Troy, but he does vocalize it to a degree and
