‘Great reading’ AMAZON.COM READER REVIEW

Fancy some light relief after yet another serial killer book about the unspeakable doings of the latest sadist? Then UP IN FLAMES, No.1 in the Casey & Catt procedural series, should do it. Up in Flames, is a Cozy Procedural, that has as much to do with family relationships as it has to do with crime.

If you enjoy some humour with your murders, you’ll likely love this British detective series.

When Chandra Bansi and her baby, Leela, are burned to death, DCI ‘Will’ Casey and his less than politically-correct sergeant, Thomas Catt, rapidly come under pressure from their superintendent to put a couple of skinhead thugs behind bars for arson.

Superintendent Brown-Smith, acutely aware, after the fiasco that was the failed inquiry into the murder of black, south London, teenager, Stephen Lawrence, that he is in the hot seat, is desperate for a speedy and politically-satisfactory solution to the case. Worried that his previously smooth and upward career progression will be irretrievably damaged, he places additional pressure on Casey.

But the investigation quickly unearths suspects other than the skinheads, suspects unlikely to endear him either to his superiors or the Asian community.

The resolution of the most difficult case of his career is not eased by the arrival of his impecunious hippie parents. Urgently in need of a temporary home, they selfishly concluded that decamping to Casey’s peaceful haven will provide the solution to their current difficulties.

But their raucous, undisciplined lifestyle causes Casey sleepless nights at a time he most needs calm. Bedevilled at home by his irresponsible parents, bedevilled at work by accusations of discrimination from the usual quarters, Casey and ThomCatt must wend a circuitous path through all the additional problems the investigation throws up.

For instance, just how respectable is Chandra’s businessman father? And what about her in-laws, who seem to have blamed their westernised daughter-in-law for the death of their only son? Other members of the victim’s family also come under suspicion. Casey must use the utmost sensitivity in his handling of the case if he is not to cause unrest in the Asian community.

And, at the heart of the case is the fact that Chandra, a modern young woman, had been uncomfortably caught between two cultures. It’s hard to say which is the more dangerous.

For lovers of cozy mysteries and procedurals.

A KILLING KARMA

Enjoying a week’s well-earned break, Detective Chief Inspector ‘Will’ Casey’s peace is shattered by a frantic call from his mother. Moon Casey, the maternal half of his ‘the sixties never died’, hippie parents, confesses there are two dead bodies in the grounds of the Fenland commune where she and his father, Star, live.

Shocked, Casey failed to question Moon thoroughly on the ‘phone. But, on arrival at their ramshackle commune, he learns that neither death has been reported — not surprising, when it emerges that the body of the first victim was found lying on top of their crushed and illicit cannabis plants and has already been buried for some time. While the body of the second victim is laid out in one of the sheds, surrounded by candles and bearing signs of violence.

Moon, Star and the rest of the commune members seem to expect Casey to sweep these inconvenient bodies under some kind of magic carpet rather than call in the local constabulary. And although he is a loving son, for a senior police officer, this really is an expectation too far.

Determined that, for once in their lives, his parents take responsibility for their own actions, he insists that they ring their local police and report the deaths.

Back on duty, Casey has to solve a very unpleasant murder on his own patch of King’s Langley: this time of a John Doe found dead in a dark alley.

With the help of his knowing streetwise sergeant, Thomas Catt and his assorted contacts, Casey must try to get to the bottom of both official and unofficial cases, with the latter suffering under the additional complication that he needs to keep a very low profile. If the media get a sniff of his connection to the druggie parents who are also suspects in what turns out to be a double murder investigation, his career could blow up in his face.
