At home, Adam Matthews and Robin
Bright are increasingly happy in their relationship and their life, with their
adored dog, Campbell. At work, both men are facing exciting new changes and
challenges in their careers. Adam has moved to a new school and been promoted
to Deputy Head and Robin has been promoted to Acting Chief Inspector and moved
police stations. Robin’s move does have some complications as he is now
stationed at Abbotston, a police station with a history of corruption. Although
most of the ‘rotten apples’ have been removed there is still the aftermath of
the bad relations between Abbotston and Robin’s previous station, Stanebridge. This
problem becomes more acute when a case of a suspicious death and unlawful
burial requires investigation while Robin’s senior officer is on leave, and
Robin has to keep a keen eye on his team, not all of whom are as motivated as
he could wish.
at the site of a Roman villa have revealed a female body buried in a shallow
grave. This is no historic burial, all the evidence indicates that she was
buried within the last year. Robin struggles to identify the victim and
establish whether her death was indeed murder, and discover a motive for the
crime. At the same time, Adam fights to stay clear of the investigation. Both
men remember with horror the danger that Adam encountered when he became too
entangled with a previous case. However, when the father of one of Adam’s
pupils offers his insights as a metal detectorist, Adam finds himself drawn
into the investigation despite his good intentions. He is also determined to
discover who at Robin’s new police station is leaking information to the media.
Although their relationship is not a secret, neither Adam nor Robin wish to be
the subjects of scurrilous attention from the Press.
investigation is the most complex case he has ever had to deal with, as
scientific evidence and witness reports appear to contradict each other, until,
in the end, it is the smallest of details that leads him to the truth.
Feet Under is the third of the mysteries featuring Robin Bright and Adam
Matthews and this is a series that gets better with each book. The characters
are delightful, especially the adorable dog, Campbell, and the plot is complex
and interesting. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
