Pressestimmen

Aline Templeton has been producing quietly intelligent, carefully plotted thrillers for years. Templeton creates a tight, convincing band of characters and has the ability to spin her story beyond immediate events to paint a picture of a small rural community in crisis. She is good at managing her plot and revealing details slowly. She 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 Detective Inspector Marjory Fleming, a resolute Scot, is Aline Templeton's new detective for whom a series is planned. A long-hidden body is discovered in an area isolated during a foot-and-mouth epidemic.The remote rural Scottish background, a blizzard, a feuding farming family with secrets - all these combine to make this novel a compelling read. Margaret Yorke Aline Templeton anatomises a rural community, provides a contemporary gothic frisson and introduces a strong and sympathetic series character. The result is an unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel.

Synopsis

Marjory Fleming is Scottish, a sheepfarmer's wife, a mother of two, and a police detective inspector in Galloway whose home and family are her refuge from the violence of her job. Laura is a psychologist, wracked with guilt after the death of her marriage and her mother, who determines to find out what happened to her older half-sister who left home 15 years ago. Laura's search takes her to rural Galloway, where her sister stayed with an extraordinary family who are top bull breeders. It is 2001, and with foot and mouth having just broken out, Dumfries and Galloway is one of the first places hit. The bulls are killed, and a body discovered when their field is ploughed up for burial of the carcasses. And DI Fleming -- 'Big Marge' to her men -- can't go home, where her husband is having to destroy his own animals, because of the murder investigation ...

What a relief to discover this book, featuring "Big Marge" a no nonsense Scottish police inspector. Details of the plot are summarized already, so I won't repeat. In addition to the mystery story, which is engrossing enough in and of itself, there is also some very nice writing ... particularly when describing the landscape and its moods. The inclusion of Scottish "vocabulary" was not irritating, as often with "foreign" language throw-ins, but added local flavor and may even help out on our next trip to Scotland. I look forward to reading other books featuring Big Marge - wonderful to have another intelligent and human detective to follow.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Foot and mouth 1. Dezember 2007
Von Beverley Strong - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A deadly outbreak of foot and mouth disease has erupted in the Scottish countryside, with authorities forcing farmers to slaughter their stock, whether they were infected or not. The effect on farmers is such that it brings a number of them to the point of suicide and others to a state of severe depression. Detective Inspector Marjory Fleming is married to one of these farmers and is being driven to distraction, trying to coax him out of this dangerous mood. At the same time, she is involved in her first murder investigation when the decayed body of a woman is uncovered while the slaughtered animals are being buried. In New York, a woman decides to visit Scotland to search for any clues to the disappearance of her sister , many years before. The family who like to think of themselves as the upper crust of the town, were the last to see the missing woman, and consists of the owner of the property who has suffered a stroke and is unable to speak, his elder son, a police detective with an unpredictably violent temper, the owner's sister, an hysterical woman given to violent screaming fits and their nephew, a slimy, thoroughly unpleasant man, who is also given to the family's code of rages. D.I.Fleming has this ghastly family to deal with as well as trying to solve the murder and cope with her husband's depression. It's a very good read and I look forward to any others in this series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen COLD IN THE EARTH - A very good read! 16. August 2005
Von L. J. Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This review is for "Cold in the Earth." Even though I suspected the killer, it didn't diminish my enjoyment in the reading. The characters are dimensional and so well drawn. The dialogue is excellent, even with the Scottish terms I didn't quite understand. She descriptions paint visual pictures of the people and the area which build tension and suspense in the plot. Her writing is described as atmospheric, and it is. This is the first book I've read by Templeton, but it only took a few pages to decide it won't be the last.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, worth reading 16. Juni 2013
Von happy_monkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Other reviewers have summarized the plot. I will just add that I thought this book was well written (other than a bit of clumsiness early in the story), and the strands in the plot came together in a natural and satisfying way. Overall, I really enjoyed the book, and will purchase the rest in the series. Readers who enjoy the Shetland series by Ann Cleeves, the Lake District mysteries by Martin Edwards, or British police procedurals in general, should try this author. (3.75/5)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Main Character a bit lackluster 5. Juni 2014
Von Gary Van Cott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book seems to be part of what has become a common genre, police procedurals set in the rural parts of the UK. My problem with this book was that I didn't find the main character DI Marjory Fleming very engaging. I thought the other main character, psychotherapist Laura, who was looking for her missing older half sister was much more interesting. This book takes place during an epidemic of Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad cow disease in the US although that name was never mentioned in the book
