This is a summer diversion for those interested in nidotherapy. The Watermeadow Mystery is a story to interest all those who have the spirit of inquiry. It is set in the little village of Hawton seventy years ago, when old fashioned English values had been preserved after being somewhat subdued by the advent of war. But gradually they emerged again, and the Watermeadow Mystery begins with a convivial golf tournament on the spacious Watermeadow course. Few of those present had any inkling of what was to follow.
This book was published in the summer of 2018. It has received some excellent reviews but the local interest has been meagre. I am afraid Lee Child, who was a pupil at my former schoo, gets more readings in a day than I get in a year, but I still make out that quality and breeding are the things that really matter, and that, despite everything, Frothy Watermeadow and his family will triumph in the end.
