I’ve now read Robert Goddard’s entire back catalogue of 21 novels over the couple of years. Blood Count is his latest.
They're intricately-plotted, often slow-paced mysteries with unexpected twists in quaint British settings, some set in past centuries. His more recent novels are shorter and feature more contemporary settings. I prefer his earlier stuff.
A hapless middle age male is usually the main character (hence, I suspect, their appeal). Still, a nice antidote to a breathless Dan Brown or David Baldacci-type page turner.
