    1. The final Duffy novel is the best of the 4. It is a real shame that Dan Kavanagh was retired, taking his bisexual, security firm operator with him.

I was interested in this series because the character of the detective is bisexual, although there is actually very little sex involved in this novel, and a whole lot more class warfare, as our intrepid, endearingly working-class bisexual detective (a former policeman) is seen as an object of disdain by the wealthy, upper-class snobs who are suspects in this English country manor murder/blackmail mystery.

Very English in language (I had to learn some meanings by context only--Downton Abbey does NOT help), and lots of commentary on the nouveau riche and the sturdy country folk.
