Praise for Aline Templeton's Marjory Fleming series -- : 'Loved it' -- Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP '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 'An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel.' -- Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH '[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 '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


A sunny evening, a tranquil garden and an old man brutally gunned down on his doorstep.
In the pretty and tranquil market town of Kirkluce a proposed superstore development has divided the population in an increasingly bitter war. The low-level aggression of bored youth that is generally tolerated has become sinister. The bloodied carcass of a sheep abandoned in the streets is more than just unpleasant vandalism and teenage bikers, terrorising a woman to breaking point, are impossible to control.
When a second victim is killed in what seems a random shooting, the fear in the town becomes tangible. DI Fleming will not accept that the crimes are motiveless, but she struggles to make sense of the two murders, when nothing makes sense any more and no one will believe anything. Not even the truth.

Format: Taschenbuch
THis was the fourth mystery featuring DI "Big Marge" Fleming which I've read. Once you've discovered a new detective series, it is satisfying to see how their personal and professional lives develop ... in addition to seeing them solve another crime. Not only is the mystery aspect down to earth, the interplay between members of her detective crew is interesting. DI Fleming's strongly centered personal life and professionalism help her deal with solving crimes and with managing her team. While the crimes committed could have been committed anywhere, there is a Scottish flavor to the stories which I enjoy. Looking forward to the next in the series.

HASH(0x8f1e8594) von 5 Sternen A police procedural that relies on character, motive and situation-- not blood and gore 8. Mai 2012
Von Cathy G. Cole - Veröffentlicht auf
First Line: "No," the woman said.

There is trouble brewing in Detective Inspector Marjory Fleming's small community of Kirkluce in southwestern Scotland. The town is fiercely divided over the plans of a superstore chain to open there. Half the citizens welcome the convenience and the possibility of more jobs; the other half knows that it would sound the death knell to most of the small shops on the High Street. Even farmers would be affected, since they would be forced to accept the much lower prices the new superstore would insist upon in exchange for their meat and produce.

If that's not enough, there's a group of teenaged boys who have too much time on their hands and not enough direction given them at home. They've taken to terrorizing an elderly lady on the outskirts of town, running amok on their motorcycles and doing damage.

When an old man who was opposed to the superstore is found gunned down on his doorstep and a second villager is the apparent victim of a random shooting, the press fans the flames of panic by announcing that there's a sniper on the rampage in Kirkluce, and the once bustling streets become deserted.

"Big Marge" has a lot on her plate trying to find the killer... or could it be two killers? Her right hand man is still out on sick leave, although the Robbie Burns-spouting Tam MacNee is doing his own investigating on the sly (and creating even more problems for his boss as a result). The most likely suspects seem to have iron clad alibis, while those who appear guilty simply cannot be. It's all down to good, solid, meticulous police work to get all the facts and put them together to find the truth.

For those of you who tend to steer clear of police procedurals or private detective stories because of blood and gore, there's no need to do that here. Aline Templeton depends upon character, motive and situation, not a proliferation of dismembered bodies, to weave a tale that will keep you up till the wee hours of the morning.

Her characterization is one of the main reasons why I enjoy her books so much. Her DI Marjory Fleming stands alongside Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope, Judith Cutler's Fran Harman, and Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway as my favorite British female crime fighters. Marjory is a force to be reckoned with on the job, but she has a husband who's a hardworking farmer, two teenaged children who can have her ripping out her hair, and elderly parents she wants to keep a loving eye on. Her constables and sergeants are also an interesting lot with their own foibles and intrigues. Watching all these characters work together is a delight.

Templeton does such a great job of misdirection that, by book's end, I couldn't believe that I hadn't seen the solution coming. But wait! Two of her most trusted investigators don't agree with Marjory's conclusions? Could Marjory be wrong? No, she can't be-- all the pieces have finally locked into the right pattern. Up until the very last sentence, the ending is an emotional rollercoaster-- and absolutely brilliant.

If you haven't read one of Aline Templeton's Detective Inspector Marjory Fleming books, you're, without doubt, missing some seriously good writing.

LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER (Pol. Proc-DI Marge Fleming-England-Cont) - VG
Templeton, Aline - 4th in series
Hodder & Stoughton, 2008, UK Hardcover - ISBN; 9780340922286

First Sentence: `No,' the woman said..

The small town of Kirkluce, England is in the midst of a debate on whether to allow the building of a superstore. There is a debate as to whether elderly Colonel Carmichael who owns the property currently containing a craft center and flats. Instead of showing up at a town meeting and announcing whether he would sell the property, the Colonel is found the next morning murdered by a shotgun blast.

An elderly woman is being terrorized by teens on motorcycles. She claims she fired over their heads, but one young man is dead from a shotgun blast. DI Marge Fleming and her team need to sort out the lies from the truth and find the killer or killers.

Being one who loves good characters, Ms. Templeton certainly fills that need. Marge, with her husband, children and the farm, make a refreshing contrast from the usual angst-ridden, relationship-challenged policeman. There are touching, normal human interludes to offset the investigation. But with a nickname of "Big Marge," she's no pushover either. Her canny sidekick, and friend, Tam McNee is here still quoting Robbie Burns.

Having the story set in a small, rural town, where the residents know each other, provides a different and interesting dynamic than a large city. Templeton's style is a formula of introducing all of the possible suspects prior to the crime, but it works. The story's plot is well done with a lot of possible villains but no one who really stands out.

Just when you think you know the villain, maybe you don't. This makes the revelation at the end all the more effective and has a greater impact. It is always a pleasure to read an Aline Templeton book.
HASH(0x8f1e8a20) von 5 Sternen Deliciously Clever Ending!! 26. März 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
What do a dead sheep, the murder of a prominent elderly citizen and the killing of a troubled bully have in common? These three brutal acts form the basis of Aline Templeton’s fourth DI Marjory Fleming book, Lamb to the Slaughter. The peaceful town of Kirkluce is divided over the proposed location of a superstore in the area. Although there will be economic benefits to the community, there will also be negative repercussions for local artists as well as the farmers in the area. Andrew Carmichael’s decision to sell or not to sell the property for the store will make or break the deal. Andrew is found murdered on the evening of a town meeting about the project. Rumors fly when a second killing follows close on the heels of Andrew’s murder and the citizens of Kirkluce are alarmed at the police’s inability to discover a perpetrator or a motive. As DI Fleming gathers her team, she must proceed without the benefit of her trusted colleague Tam McNee who is on sick leave. The rest of the team is warned that discussing the cases with Tam is strictly off-limits and this particular dictum leads to some rather humorous and devious actions as Tam does everything he can to worm his way into an investigation that will take readers down a convoluted path. There seem to be obvious suspects in the two murders —a nephew who stands to inherit from Andrew Carmichael and a frightened old lady who is being terrorized by the bully Barney Kyle… but who killed the hapless sheep and is there a common thread between the three acts? It’s while studying one of her famous mind-maps that DI Fleming hits on the solution. Marjory Fleming is the antithesis of the glamorous policewomen portrayed in many fictional accounts. She’s a lot like the rest of us trying to create a balance of family, friends, and career. Her balancing act threatens to collapse as she deals with a daughter who is filled with teenage angst, parents who are growing older and more dependent and the weight of public pressure to solve the cases within a cumbersome legal system. In addition to all that, a myriad of aggravating personnel problems blur her ability to focus on the cases. Readers who have read other DI Fleming books will not be disappointed in this one. As in each book of the series, Aline Templeton’s characters are well-developed, her suspects, numerous, and her plot, complex. And the ending is so deliciously clever it could only come from the mind of Tam McNee!

*I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review*
The story takes place in the little town of Kirkluce where everyone has something to hide. When someone shoots a sheep and leaves it in the middle of town no one thinks much of it- probably just miscreant teens screwing around. But when an influential man is gunned down on his front doorstep Detective Marjory Fleming begins to wonder if the two incidents aren't somehow related. And when things continue to escalate, the citizens of Kirkluce can no longer keep their skeletons hidden in their closets.
I really enjoyed the small town dynamic of Kirkluce. The author juggles a lot of families throughout the book and I thought she navigated the multiple story lines really well. The way she set everything up slowly and pulled it all together in the end was extremely impressive. The story itself is great. There is a lot of detail without being boring, and I think the town scandals are all very realistic things people deal with every day. The characters all seemed very flawed and genuine which I found refreshing. The mystery behind these crimes is just fascinating to watch unfold. I was sufficiently baffled for most of the book, and was not able to figure out what the heck was going on any more than the characters! We are slowly given little clues here and there as Detective Fleming and her team try to piece together the mystery and let me tell you- I did NOT see that ending coming! My only gripe would be that the ending seemed a little abrupt and I REALLY want to know what happened to one person in particular... but I would definitely recommend this book. 4 stars
HASH(0x8f1e8ec4) von 5 Sternen Amazing story telling and suspense - a page turner 24. Juli 2016

This next book in the Marjory Fleming series is excellent. It is well edited and some of the too long, tedious sentences at the beginning of the first novel are not in this book. The writing is much crisper. Ms. Templeton has enviable talent in weaving a great story while developing the characters so that you become involved with them and begin to get inside their heads and thought processes. She also creates atmosphere so that you can almost visualize where the story takes place. You can "feel" the cold and bitter winds, or snow, or rain coming from the sea or over the moor, or the warmth of a blazing fire with a glass of brandy or Scotch in your hand. I lose myself in her books. I have already read a few more of her books and haven't been disappointed yet. I put one down only to pick up another one. She has a very fertile and talented mind, and I hope she doesn't run out of plot ideas any time soon.

One of my favorite genres of books is murder mysteries that keep you turning pages and in suspense almost to the end of the book. Also, another quality I appreciate in her books is that she doesn't feel the need to use obscenities and graphic sex to make her books interesting. In fact, she uses virtually none of either. It's refreshing and it's obvious that the story and characters carry the story. I've discarded reading not a few books because the unrelenting cursing and sex are distracting and often are "filler" for less than a stellar story. Ms. Templeton doesn't need to employ either of these except for emphasis occasionally. She has an amazing story telling talent.
