Hopjoy Was Here (Flaxborough Chronicles #3)

GoodReads Link

This is the third book in the series and I have reviewed the last two here: #1,#2.I am starting to get the feel for this series. This book again has women in a fairly negative position but credits them with more brains than the last one. I did enjoy this book the most of the three.

The writing is the highlight of the book. It has a very different take on any ordinary scenario, so much so that each description on its own makes for an entertaining read. The case in this was also interesting, it has a steady flow and gives you enough hints that the final surprise is more satisfying than being completely in the dark. In his locality, Inspector Purbright has been sent to investigate an anonymous letter only because the location to where the letter points a finger is the known home of a ‘government agent’. Since there is a lot of hush-hush involved, the brightest minds are put to the case. There is no sign of anything untoward at the location except for a strange situation with the bathroom.They have to start working on a case without actual having anything to work with which makes the process entertaining despite it being a criminal investigation. The humour is more apparent in this book(or I might be just getting accustomed to the wry delivery) and with more agents being brought in to work it out from the secret end, it adds to the chaos.

It is not a very large book and can be read in a sitting or two, I am definitely looking forward to the next in the series.  I was lucky enough to be approved by the publisher for the access to an ARC.
