Hushed In Death features Inspector Lamb, along with his daughter Vera, as they work to solve the murder of a not-so-well-liked gardener at a hospital for recovering soldiers while their country is still in the midst of a war. Lamb is up against a large list of suspects and roadblocks of lies that will test his patience and his cunning detective skills. I had previously read the first in this series featuring Inspector Lamb a couple of years ago when I checked it out from my local library and put the series on my must read list. I'm not sure this installment measured up to my enthusiasm of the first book, but it was still a great mystery read. The cast of characters were a nice blend of personalities and the setting of a rural English estate was well done. The mystery kept me guessing until the very end, which is always nice. My only real complaint was that it was a little slow in quite a bit of places. The ending chapters picked up the pace and the suspense, but there was quite a bit to plod through while getting there. Overall, I didn't like this one as well as the first, but enough that I will look for future books in the series to see how they've progressed. A big thanks to the publisher, Pegasus, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book that was sent in exchange for an honest review.
