Season of Darkness book. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. And I have already started a book in yet another of the series by Maureen Jennings. This was a great story, with an excellent pace, and some wonderful characters. I look forward to reading others in this series and other books by Jennings. Jul 16, 2011 An Odd1 rated it it was amazing.

Maureen Jennings’s trademark in her popular and acclaimed Detective Murdoch series is to reveal a long-forgotten facet about life in the city that dispels any notion that it really ever was Toronto the Good. As well, in A Journeyman to Grief, an exceptionally well plotted and engrossing story, she shows just how a great harm committed in the past can erupt fatally in the present.

Maureen Jennings (born 1939) is a British Canadian writer. Jennings was born and grew up in Birmingham, England. She attended Saltley Grammar School. Jennings emigrated to Canada with her mother when she was seventeen. She studied psychology and philosophy at the University of Windsor, and an MA in English Literature at the University of Toronto. Her first successful writing was stage plays.

When a young woman is found murdered on a desolate country road, Tyler – who has no shortage of troubles of his own – finds himself drawn into an uneasy alliance with one of the Prees Heath internees, a psychiatrist, who claims to be an expert on the criminal mind.

The creator of the acclaimed Detective Murdoch Mysteries turns her exceptional storytelling skills to a murder mystery set in rural Shropshire, England, in the darkest days of the Second World War.Following the disastrous retreat of the British army from Dunkirk in 1940, England is plunged into a state of fear. The threat of a German invasion is real, and many German Nationals are interned in camps across the country. One such camp is on the ancient moor land of Prees Heath, near the small town of Whitchurch in Shropshire, where Tom Tyler is the sole detective inspector.Young women from all walks of life have joined the Land Army, to help desperate farmers keep the country fed. When one of these young women is found murdered on a desolate country road, Tyler is almost glad for the challenge; he has been fretting for some time about the dullness of policing in a rural community. In addition, a former lover has reappeared and turned his emotions upside down; his soldier son seems utterly changed by his experience at Dunkirk; and his sixteen year old daughter is unhappy. As he pursues the murderer, Tyler finds himself drawn into an uneasy alliance with one of the Prees Heath internees, a psychiatrist, who claims to be an expert on the criminal mind.

Sadaron above the Gods
This is the first Tom Tyler book I've read and it won't be the last. Maureen Jennings has mastered all the arts of misdirection and intrigue without ever playing unfair with her readers. I particularly appreciate her description of the rigours that my British parents and grandparents must have faced during the dark days of WW2.

Maureen Jennings has done her homework and created a genuine and likeable detective and his staff.
The atmosphere of rural Britain following the retreat from Dunkirk draws the reader in and makes for an unforgettable novel with every character described in believable detail. The mystery is maintained until the final chapters. Let us hope she is at work on another book in the series!
Watikalate
Jennings portrayal of murder in a small English village coping with the rigors of rationing and loss keeps the reader engrossed in the characters and plot of this mildly entertaining whodunnit. The perspective of the detective in charge allows us to feel a certain empathy for his family and for the privations of the British people during the war years.
Kirimath
Interesting story. I just wish the author had stuck to the mystery and stopped adding all the romance and personal goings on with the family. Aren't killings and mystery enough without adding other stuff as well?
Captain America
It was a very good read. Held my interest from start to finish.
Kann
. I liked it much better than I have some of her other books,. It was far less confusing than some of the Murdock Mysteries. I do wish these books had the x-ray future. It would help a great deal.
Spilberg
Historic imagination is allowed to run wild with this book. Jennings captures the very real fear and paranoia that swept through towns and cities back then.
Ms Jennings has once again given us a fabulous tale! As an American I sometimes have a little trouble understanding a few events and had to identify same references; However for me as a student of WWII I enjoyed having an insight into this period which added to my enjoyment of the story.
