I found this an interesting and well written mystery and in my opinion S T Haymon is a much underrated author. Ritual Murder is a mystery in the classic mould with an interesting and likeable detective with an assistant who has no qualms about telling his superior if he thinks he's making a mistake. The background is interesting to anyone who knows Norwich on which the fictitious city of Angleby is based.
I particularly liked the characterisation in this book - the flamboyant archaeologist , Professor Mallory Pargeter and his assistants; the Rabbi who is instructing Ben Jurnet in the Jewish faith so that his girlfriend Miriam can be persuaded to marry him; the marvellously urbane superintendent who is Ben Jurnet's boss.
The plot too is well drawn with many twists and turns and a nail biting finale. If you like your mystery novels in the classic mould without too much on the page violence and an interesting background then give this series a try. They can be read in any order.
