original review posted at Layers of Thought The second in an atmospheric murder mystery set on the coast of rural Scotland It has a strong female lead and can be read as a standalone I would, however, recommend reading the first in the series Cold in the Earth, since it adds character depth.
Shellie s description Set in a farming and seaside community in Scotland, Detective Inspector Marjory Fleming and her family have almost overcome the devastating foot and mouth incident which occurred in the first and previous novel of this series, Cold in the Earth When the community s local rescue boat with its three volunteers crashes on the rocks during a messy storm, it takes all the lives on board The community is once again devastated Things become complicated when another detective determines that the boat was perhaps led into the wrong harbor a rocky Second in the DI Fleming Series and my second Aline Templeton book I love her books They always keep me interested and thinking about the book when I m not reading I like the re occurring characters and their families These books are set in Galloway, Scotland A wonderful setting In this one We have three deaths in a lifeboat wreck The lifeboat cox turned into the wrong inlet in a storm and the boat was wrecked on the rocks A tragic accident One of the detectives with a keen eye notices that there were two lights on the hill that shouldn t have been there They were the signal for the correct inlet Was someone luring them into the dangerous inlet with intent to murder Not knowing which of the three people on the boat were the intended victim makes it very hard to determine a motive and a suspect And there are lots of suspects Aline Templeton s crime series set in Dumfries is a superb example of the police procedural DI Marjory Fleming is a good, strong, believable character who is neither a ball breaker nor one of those women who can run a murder enquiry but not care for her family.
It is well worth reading the series in order as this is one of those few series where characters do grow and develop, and there are consequences of people s action If you enjoy reading Peter Robinson and Stuart Pawson I think you should give your self a treat and try Aline Templeton.
This is my second book in this series, really impressive Reminds me of the Vera Stanhope series by Ann Cleeves which I also hugely enjoyed The Darkness the Deep has a great plot, really interesting characters and lots of suspense, everything really to make a great murder mystery Lots of emotional depth to the characters, no stereotypes here although some predictable attitudes to a woman in a senior police role Will definitely read in this series I love British writers generally, especially Ruth Rendell, Robert Goddard and Andrew Taylor Aline Templeton deserves to be better known if the first two of this series is anything to go by.
SET in the southwest of Scotland, The Darkness and the Deep centers on the wreck of a lifeboat and the death of three of its crew When D.
I Fleming and her team discover the wreck was orchestrated,not merely a tragic accident, they have to delve through loads of possible connections, multiple people with possible motives, and even dead ends Templeton does a laudable job creating the setting and developing both major and minor characters, as well as crafting a suspenseful, believable plot Very engrossing and highly recommended for fans of tightly plotted police procedurals I m looking forward to reading the rest in the series.
This was a great book I love the mystery and the humor to balance out some of the tragedy of this story this is well written and easy to connect to Marjory is a great character I love that she is a mom and a farmer s daughter I was able to relate to her character better than most in other crime novels I have read I loved this book and it s plot The ending was perfect and I can t wait to read of Templeton s work Another excellently plotted mystery with very well drawn characters Templeton writes so smoothly that just reading her prose is a genuine pleasure But the Scottish speech patterns are a great delight as well For example, following a lifeboat rescue, one of the team remarks Just a wee fella who d bought himself a boat and didn t know his anchor from his engine His wife was giving him laldie when I left and if you ask me he ll be lucky to get a shottie playing with boats in his bath from now on DI Fleming keeps a jar on her desk and collects fines from anyone quoting Robert Burns
