Catherine Aird is the pseudonym of English novelist Kinn Hamilton McIntosh MBE. She is the author of more than twenty crime fiction novels and several collections of short stories. Her witty, literate, and deftly plotted novels straddle the "cozy" and "police procedural" genres and are somewhat similar in flavour to those of Martha Grimes, Caroline Graham, M C Beaton, Margaret Yorke, and Pauline Bell. She is a recipient of the Cartier Diamond Dagger award.

A Dead Liberty - Catherine Aird. There was not even, noted Henry Simmonds, the faintest shake or nod of that fine head of hair that could possibly be construed as a response to the most dreadful charge in the book. The Calleshire Chronicles. The girl held herself quite still, almost as if she were afraid that any movement at all might be taken for what it was not.

Inspector C.D. Sloan investigates a bizarre case of murder involving African black magic and an accused murderess who will not talk

This book is the 12th in Catherine Aird's 'Inspector C. D. Sloan' series, and was originally published in 1986. My husband and I both enjoyed these ingenious British mysteries starring Inspector C.D. Sloan and his clueless side-kick, Detective-Constable Crosby, and I was happy to see them come out on Kindle so I could read them all over again.

The procedurals are set in the fictional County of Calleshire, England which very much resembles the County of Kent where Catherine Aird (the pseudonym of novelist Kinn Hamilton McIntosh) lives.

Who stood to gain from the poisoning death of Kenneth Carline, a young civil engineer? Lucy Durmast, arraigned on the charge of his murder, fed him chili con carne for lunch shortly before he died, and she refuses to speak at all--not to the police, nor to lawyers, nor to friends, nor to the court. Her father is the head of the civil engineering firm that employed the deceased, but he is in Africa, working on a new project.

Sloan and 'Defective Constable' Crosby must take over the murder case almost a year after Kenneth Carline died from a dose of hyoscine hydrobromide, but their chief suspect won't talk to them. Kenneth Carline had been about to attend the opening ceremony for a new tunnel under the River Calle when he died, so Sloan and Crosby scrutinize the protesters who disrupted it. Then Lucy receives a death curse in the mail, and the investigation turns toward Africa.

These Calleshire Chronicles have been labelled 'cozies' by some reviewers, but I find them a bit too edgy to easily fit into the 'cozy' category. Catherine Aird's humor has many hidden barbs. I'd classify her Inspector Sloan books as police procedurals, with interesting dollops of village life in not-so-cozy postwar England.

Catherine Aird writes great mysteries with a fabulous lead in C.D. Sloan. Always enjoy her books. Similar to Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh in that they're about the people and motives, not about gore.

Another good book. I never would have figured out such an ending! Good job! Now on to the next Aird book. Can' wait.

I really enjoy Catherine Aird's writing style and humor and good use of the English language-it is not dumbed down like so many books these days.

My fault. I apparently skipped some by reading over a long period of time and forgetting my place. But as usual I liked the people.

Aird is one of my favorites in the police procedural genre with intriguing plots and very appealing characters. This is one of her best; the red herrings turn out to be caviar and the plot opens like an origami box. Cheers for Sloan & Co.

Ms Aird has never gripped my interest as well as she has done over and over with "A Most Contagious Game." But I continue to enjoy Sloan & Crosby in all their mysteries which are really mysterious.
A great read with quick delivery
