      I picked up this delightful mystery on a whim based on the quote by Susan Allen Toth (the engaging author of "My Love Affair with England") on the flyleaf. Graham Thomas draws his quaint and quirky local Cornish characters with a fine hand, and seems to be developing a fascinating, if all-too-human protagonist in Scotland Yard's Erskine Powell. The Care family, with Sir Henry Care at its head, is based at Naneslow, its decaying family estate in Cornwall. Sixteen years before, there was a death in the family when Deborah, Sir Henry's first wife, fell from the top of Naneslow's tower.

But Jim has been drowned in the Dumb River, near Ely, miles from his Yorkshire home. His body has been discovered before the killer intended – disturbed by a torrential flood. It's up to Superintendent Littlejohn of Scotland Yard to trace the mystery of the murder to its source, leaving waves of scandal and sensation in his wake.

The Barker's Dozen recounts twelve cases of Inspector Richard Thompson, of Scotland Yard, as told by Snuffles, his dog. The cases range from murder to dognapping. The prose style is entertaining and manages to capture the feel of the period, a time before forensics when it was only a detective's prowess that led to an arrest.

A romantic subplot, unobtrusively, ties the cases into a novel.5/5(1). Thomas Lynley, formerly acting superintendent of New Scotland Yard, returns to his Cornish roots to grieve for his wife Helen and finds a body. Resolutely tramping the seaside cliffs of Cornwall to come to terms with the murder of his pregnant wife (With No One as Witness, ), Lynley spies a fallen rock-climber and heads for the nearest.
