Description

I must say that I hadn't even realised this book was out until I saw it on the shelves in W H Smith! We are introduced to the two main characters Samson O'Brien and Delilah (Dee) Metcalfe, and the fictional Dales village of Brunscliffe - based on Settle in Yorkshire. There are two very strong main characters, Royal Enfield motor bike owning Samson O'Brien now running the local Dales Detective Agency, and his soon to be formalised business partner Delilah (Dee) Metcalfe, who is also his landlord.

We also read of a mysterious captive, someone from Bruncliffe, only just alive, but held prisoner in some dark room. Samson makes it up with his now sober father, and could opt for a good life in Brunscliffe, but he reminds himself he is only lying low for six months. This is the first book I've read waiting for its release - because I discovered The Dales Detective when the previous books were already published - and I read them, one after the other, last year. Roger Murgatroyd (Troy) is the surly landlord of The Fleece pub in the centre of the village, with Kay his wife.

Arty catches Samson hiding in a ginnel watching Taylors, works out what is afoot, and soon the Fellside Hall pensioners are in on the act too.

Nina Hussain turns up asking for a holiday job - she wants to be a detective when she leaves school.Joseph now lives at Fellside Hall, an "old folk's home," with good friends Arty Robinson, Eric, Edith Hird and her sister Clarissa. I would like to thank Netgalley and Pan Macmillan for an advance copy of Date with Evil, the eighth novel to feature Samson O’Brien and Delilah Metcalfe of the Dales Detective Agency, set in the fictional Yorkshire town of Buncliffe.

I very much enjoyed and will continue recommending this series to all who love a cosy crime or indeed as a palette cleanser for those who love more gritty crime.
