Murder On The Moor by Julianna Deering is a historical murder mystery. It is the fifth book in the Drew Farthering series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Set in the years following the Great War Murder On The Moor is written in a style reminiscent of P.G.Wodehouse, Sherlock Holmes and Rebecca all rolled into one. The ‘voices’ were very much the clipped English tones from the 1950’s BBC.
Set on the bleak Yorkshire moors, the technique of pathetic fallacy was employed, as the weather and the setting mirrored the action. This produced a great atmosphere for the reader.
