Mystery author Caroline Graham is at it again with a new and tangled installment in the Midsomer Murders series. Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby (the gently irascible John Nettles) and the trusty sergeant Troy (ably played, as always, by Daniel Casey) are trying to keep the peace between the locals at Martyr Warren and the two clans of Travelers who have decided to settle in for a bit. Things, of course, turn deadly, with murder, theft, and spouse-swapping all on the menu. Graham's welcome undercurrent of humor runs through the carnage, this time in the form of Barnaby's frustratingly strict new diet. As always in this fine series, the performances are first-rate, the puzzle is an engaging one, and village life is depicted with all the affection and gentle teasing it deserves. Well worth watching. --Ali DavisFrom the Back Cover:
