Pressestimmen

A superb novel! Filled with humour and insight. Rarely have I read descriptions that have left me gasping, in both their hilarity and their painful truth. A wonderful read' -- Louise Penny. If you love traditional mysteries, you'll enjoy Wicked Autumn...It's a classic, and one almost any reader will enjoy. -- Charlaine Harris There are certain things you want in a village mystery: a pretty setting, a tasteful murder, an appealing sleuth... Malliet delivers all that. New York Times Book Review. A superb new series... a true homage to Agatha Christie...Malliet, like Louise Penny, brings a contemporary freshness to the traditional mystery. Library Journal (starred review). Wicked Autumn has great charm - Miss Marple would approve Daily Mail If you like Agatha Christie you'll love this. BLIRT

Kurzbeschreibung

Max Tudor has adapted well to his post as vicar of St Edwold's in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip. The quiet village seems the perfect home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past as an MI5 agent. Now he has sound a measure of peace among urban escapees and yoga practitioners, artists and crafters and New Agers. But this new-found serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women's Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident but Max's training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play...

In Wicked Autumn, G M Malliet serves up an irresistible English village - deliciously skewered - a flawed but engaging protagonist and a brilliantly modern version of the traditional locked room mystery.

Praise for G.M.Maillet's Max Tudor series:

'G M Malliet has brought the village cosy into the twenty first century... Wicked Autumn is a refreshing read for everyone who loves a really good murder.'Charles Todd.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A tribute to the Golden Age...of America... 10. Juli 2013
Von FictionFan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
President of the Women's Institute and self-proclaimed leader of all village ventures, Wanda Batton-Smythe is overbearing and rude to all. Nobody likes her, but does someone hate her enough to kill her? When she is found dead during the Harvest Fayre, local MI5-agent-turned-vicar Max Tudor suspects foul play...

This is a fun take on the Golden Age mystery with much to recommend it. Well written and with a good deal of mild humour, the book nods repeatedly towards Agatha Christie and the author is clearly trying to emulate that style, with some success. Max Tudor is a likeable protagonist, who has left MI5 after becoming disillusioned. Following a road to Damascus moment, he has come late to his calling as vicar and brings his worldly knowledge to bear on this mystery. Some of the villagers are well fleshed out, though there is a tendency towards stereotyping.

The plot is shrouded in mystery till the very end and although some clues are given, really the dénouement relies too much on a twist that the reader could not have known, so not as fair as most Golden Age mysteries were. The book is also a bit over-padded with unnecessary descriptions of the village, of what characters were wearing, even of Max's backstory - I felt it could have lost roughly a third of its 300 pages and been better for it.

Overall, though, an enjoyable read that would certainly encourage me to read more of the author's work and deserving of a 4-star rating....

...that is, if I were American. As a Brit, however, the constant Americanisation of the book grated hugely. This is after all a book about an English village written by an author who spent a considerable period of time living and studying in England. Most Brits (myself included) wouldn't know who Cotton Mather is, wouldn't nickname someone the Great White Oprah, wouldn't refer to someone as Yenta (there aren't usually too many Yiddish speakers in your average English village) and certainly wouldn't plow their fields. We don't plow, we plough! And all of those references come from just the first couple of chapters. If the author wanted to write about the US then she should have done so, but if writing about England then it's surely not too much to ask that the cultural references should be English. We even had references to 'Don't ask, don't tell' - hardly a major talking point over the village tea tables in a country where the policy never existed.

Rant over! Recommended as an enjoyable read to anyone who can tolerate the mish-mash of misplaced cultural references. For me, however, this problem means the book only rates as 3 stars.

NB This book was provided for review by the publisher, Constable & Robinson.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wicked Autumn 5. September 2013
Von Damaskcat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Max Tudor - former MI5 employee and now parish priest - hopes he has found himself a safe haven from violence in a quiet rural village. Unfortunately his hopes prove short-lived when Wanda - who virtually runs village activities - is found dead in the middle of a village fayre. At first it seems as though the death might have been an accident but Max is convinced it is murder and ends up assisting the police because he feels he needs to help uncover the perpetrator.

This is an interesting mystery in the classic mould with well-drawn characters. The only jarring notes were the many Americanisms. I'm aware the author is American but the book is set in England and considering it is called `Wicked Autumn' rather than `Wicked Fall' I would have expected more attention to the language used. That said the book kept me reading and I found it enjoyable to the extent that I have bought the next one on the series.
