My pick this week for Pattinase's Friday's Forgotten Books comes from books that I read in 1991.
Synopsis (Fantastic Fiction)
A visit to a Causton Amateur Dramatic Society production is not
Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby's idea of good entertainment, but
loyalty to his wife prevails. And when the leading man takes his role
too much to heart in a gruesome final act, Tom finds his professional
skills are called upon.
The first in this series THE KILLINGS AT BADGER'S DRIFT was featured in my Forgotten Books post in August 2011, and was also listed at #80 by the British Crime Writer's Association in their The Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time is a list published in 1990.
You might like to take this advice also - never visit Midsomer during a Festival!
Why MYSTERIES? Because that is the genre I read.
Why PARADISE? Because that is where I live.
Among other things, this blog, the result of a 2008 New Year's resolution,
will act as a record of books that I've read, and random thoughts.

Kerrie - I liked this series very much. And the TV series had some good episodes too. Thanks for the reminder.
My son also said that I should not visit Midsommer. Thanks for an excellent review.
I majored in Theatre, so I always appreciate mysteries with a theatrical bent. Thanks.
