Pressestimmen

'An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel.' -- Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH 'It is always a pleasure to read Aline Templeton, but THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP must surely be her best book to date. Aline's characters are so beautifully drawn ...' -- J Wallis Martin 'A compelling read.' -- Margaret Yorke on COLD IN THE EARTH 'Loved it' -- Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP '[Aline Templeton] has demonstrated that, just when we thought Scotland was saturated with detectives, a strong woman can elbow her way in and find a unique niche.' -- Scotsman on COLD IN THE EARTH 'A fascinating cast of possible villains is explored in this skilfully plotted and well-paced novel, each vividly described, entirely believable and never sliding into the usual parodies of country folk. But its real strength is DI Marjory Fleming, both tough and vulnerable as she struggles to track down the killer ... This book is a delight, from its leisurely start to the moving and unexpected finish. Even better, it's the second in a series, so there's more pleasure to come.' -- Guardian on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP 'In fictional terms the combination of domesticity and detection is very appealing, especially when it comes with a detailed, vivid portrayal of a complete society ... an interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual series.' -- Literary Review on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP 'Rich in characterisation and evocative detail, if you've yet to discover the outstanding Marjory Fleming series, here's a great place to start.' -- Daily Record

Kurzbeschreibung

On a beautiful, eerily quiet May morning in a remote corner of Scotland, a girl is found brutally bludgeoned to death, the silence of the scene broken only by the ringing of her mobile telephone. DI Marjory Fleming thrives on the adrenalin and tension that come with heading a major crime investigation. With the discovery of not one, but two murdered corpses on her patch, she's about to feel the pressure like never before ...The community of Drumbreck -- a tranquil weekend playground for rich Glaswegians -- is small and close-knit. But the veneer of contented prosperity conceals nasty secrets and daily betrayals. DI Fleming must watch her own back as she searches for a link between the two crimes. Uncovering layer upon layer of intrigue and deceit, Fleming is about to learn that while the dead can't tell lies, the living most certainly can ...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Zieht sich irgendwie hin 18. Dezember 2012
Von Cajeput
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die ersten zwei Krimis von Aline Tempelton fand ich top, dieser zieht sich hin wie alter Kaugummi. Ich habe es auch nicht zu Ende gelesen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Grandioser Krimi 1. Oktober 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
Bereits der erste und der zweite Band der DI Fleming Series waren hochwertige Krimis (wobei der zweite band besser als der erste war).
Nun ist es Aline Templeton abermals gelungen, sich selbst zu übertreffen. Mit einem Feingefühl, das vermutlich nur eine AutorIN aufbringen kann führt sie uns in einen Krimi, der liebevoll die einzelnen Figuren entwickelt und obendrein vor dem malerischen Setting Galloways spielt.
Dabei treten liebgewonnene Bekannte wie Bill, Laura oder Tam wieder auf.
Die Spannung steigt kontinuierlich.
Derdiedas Mörder (m/w/singular/plural) am Ende... einfach genial! Lesefutter vom Feinsten, geschrieben in einem Englisch, dem man das Schottische anhören kann.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Aline Templeton is one of my favorite crime fiction writers 13. Mai 2010
Von Cathy G. Cole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First Line: The wind had dropped with the sunrise.

When "Big Marge"-- Detective Inspector Marjorie Fleming-- of the Galloway Constabulary Headquarters in Kirkluce walks onto the scene, the only sound to be heard is the ringing of the murdered girl's cell phone. When confirming the victim's identity proves to be trickier than expected, and when another body turns up, DI Fleming knows that the task of finding the murderer in the well-heeled village of Drumbeck is going to take plenty of patience and diplomacy.

I've been a fan of Aline Templeton's Marjory Fleming series from book one. I feel as though I'm getting to know an area of Scotland that I keep bypassing on the way to Glasgow (and on to the Highlands). Wigtown, the horrors of foot and mouth, sheep herding trials... Templeton describes the area with knowledge and affection.

But there's more to the series than its setting. Big Marge and her detectives are multi-faceted and don't always do what you expect of them. We also get to see how they are when they're at home, which I always think leads to characters that are well "fleshed out".

This time around, Marjory is saddled with a detective who's on the fast track to promotion. As a result, he's much more interested in finding a suspect that fits his pet theories than he is in finding the actual murderer. Nothing like a detective making a difficult investigation even tougher! Add to that the fact that Marjory and her detectives are teasing one thread at a time loose from a tapestry of money and privilege in a small village that's been turned into weekend homes for the wealthy, and it's easy to see that this case is a nightmare.

Templeton always has an excellent plot and setting populated with some of my favorite characters in crime fiction. Lying Dead is no exception. If you haven't made the acquaintance of "Big Marge", I sincerely hope you do.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent addition to series 18. Februar 2014
Von BookLover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the third volume in the Marjory Fleming Scottish police procedurals and with each story gets Templeton gets only better. Although this book stands alone readers of the previous two titles will appreciate the depth of storyline and characters that Templeton has built upon in this volume. The characters from both sides of Fleming's "glass wall" (home life and professional life) are rich, believable and interesting. It was difficult to put the book down.

Volumes 4-6 in the series (Lamb to the Slaughter; Dead in the Water; and, Cradle to Grave) will be available in e-format for Kindle in March, April and May 2014 respectively...I wish the publisher would release all of them at once! It's a pity that now I have to wait until March for the next installment. Volumes 7 & 8 (Evil for Evil; and, Bad Blood) are already available on Kindle, but I will force myself to wait and read them in order.

An excellent series and an excellent introduction to Scottish law and police procedures. Highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great whodunit! 20. Februar 2014
Von Amy L. Yingling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
An interweaving web of possible suspects left me stumped as to who committed the crimes which I found maddening but much more entertaining then figuring out who did it by the fourth chapter! Favorite character was DC Kerr, just something about her standing out and being different then the others endeared her to me. The only thing I felt out of my element about was the dialogue about the dog trials, those few pages to me were particularly hard to get through because of this but since the story occurs in Scotland the dog trials have a place there but it didn't make it any less confusing to this American. On the whole, I really enjoyed this one!
{A solid reading experience. Enjoyable, well-written and satisfying. Marked by three or four issues, all-in-all not too shabby. Most books rank on this level for me. I'm just a middle of the road type person.}
5.0 von 5 Sternen Marjory and Tam strike again! 24. August 2014
Von Magus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
You just have to love Aline Templeton's mystery novels (and particularly the DI Fleming series) if you're a Brit-Lit, Scot-Lit, Wales-Live (OK, OK-Lit) mystery novels. But I have a sweet place in my heart for DI Fleming mystery's myself... I've read of good coppers, bad coppers, obvious suspects, suspects that I wouldn't have guessed, etc. This one really had me puzzled until the last page, though, and ya gotta love a mystery like that!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book. 10. Juli 2014

I always think I know 'who done it', but Mrs. Templeton fools me each time. Cannot wait to read the next one.
