A good quick read.

"A Necessary End" is a competent little village cozy featuring the perspicacious DCI Webb solving the murder of Nancy Pendrick, the second wife of a man who lost his first wife under odd circumstances, and who step-family seems more interested in her independent wealth than her. There's also the matter of her own elusive ex-husband, who worked unknown in the Pendrick family hotel, until he was sacked just before her death, and has now taken off for parts unknown, after being the last person to see her alive. Then there are various friends and colleagues, none of whom shed a tear at her demise. As Webb works his way through all the witnesses and suspects, he collects enough red herrings to stock a fish store, and every one of his informants seems a candidate for president of the Liars Club. Much of the pleasure I derived from this novel was in watching Webb navigate the swirling currents of perfidy and prevarication in a dogged search for Nancy Pendrick's murder, but I am very much a fan of the classic British mystery, and this book is fully ensconced in that genre. While the ending was a bit rushed and too tangential to the main line of the investigation (the reason I've given four stars rather than five) it is still a very entertaining and satisfying read.

As always this writer has put forth an intriguing plot with the storyline populated by an envious list of characters who carry secrets and low derring do to the surprising ending. There is no dearth of suspect characters, even a number whose lives and predicaments evoke sympathy in the reader. Good pace and outstanding character development. Though I neither like nor admire the egotistical protagonist Detective David Webb , Hannah James, his partner in romance is one nifty lady.
