Review of The Cipher Garden
Second in the Lake District Mysteries series, starring Hannah Scarlett, Chief Inspector of the unsolved cases department, and Dan Kind, a historian who retires to live in the area and is the son of the deceased former mentor of the aforementioned Hannah.
As in the first one, it takes a while to get to the point, but once it does, the thing develops smoothly to the end. The plot is good and quite original and keeps the suspense until the end.
Recommended for those who read in English as it hasn’t been published in Spanish.
