About the Author
Stuart Pawson had a career as a mining engineer, followed by a spell working for the probation service, before he became a full-time writer. He lives in Fairburn, Yorkshire, and when not hunched over the word processor likes nothing more than tramping across the moors which often feature in his stories. He is also part of the Murder Squad - a group of Northern crime writers who give readings, talks, signings around the country.

All of this is threaded through an awkward courtship for Charlie and Rosie, his geology teacher (if you haven't sussed it already, Charlie is a bit of a rural Renaissance Man - also paints and writes). She suddenly and apparently loses interest when she finds out that her student is a copper. What keeps this book from being a bit too twee for words is that it is written in a clean, breezy style and makes no attempt at heavy social commentary, yet succeeds by not trying.
These are likeable people and I look forward to recouping the series and figuring out where it all started.
But I think one should read the books in sequence. There were some references to earlier cases.
Next on my list is the first book: The Picasso Scam.
DI Charlie Priest is good at his job and he knows it. A typical Yorkshireman in his thinking. while things are quiet on the job fron the finally has time to concentrate on his love life. But his new girlfriend is keeping a secret from him . . .
Stuart Pawson writes a good detective story, straightforward down to earth, gritty and extremely readable. None of the frills or sensationalism that may crime writers like to employ in their books. Just a good, well thought out plot and believable characters.
