Reviews of In Line for Murder by Colin Garrow

In Line For Murder (2015) by Colin Garrow is another great short read by the author.

The plot is set in Edinburgh in the 1890s. Inspector Angus Robertson is on the case. Sir Charles Foggarty has set him a case involving the missing dead body of a woman called Mara who Foggarty was cheating on his wife with. She was in a long list of women but that’s a whole other story.

I really liked this story. It is a classic short detective story and has intrigue and suspense throughout. The pacing in the build up is wonderfully done and there is a great twist. It is a bit longer than the previous short read I read by this author and has a mixture of Sherlockian and Ian Rankin vibes to it. And the latter is not simply because it’s set in Scotland! But at the same time, the writer’s own style comes through more. It is a very enjoyable story that is perfect for reading with a cup of coffee.

Very entertaining.

This is a wonderfully colorful short story. I enjoyed the piecing together of the clues, as few as there seemed to be.
