Detective Inspector Charlie Priest’s day hasn’t got off to a good start.

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest’s day hasn’t got off to a good start. Late for work for the first time in twenty years, thanks to a sloe gin hangover, he’s faced with the rather grisly evidence of a crime in the local park before a call comes in to say that one of his new constables has discovered a body.

Mostly I love Detective Inspector Charlie Priest My first Stuart Pawson/Charlie Priest novel and I hope that it wont be the last

Mostly I love Detective Inspector Charlie Priest. His sense of the what is appropriate and his sense of humor are a delight. Here finally is a new series that makes me want to read all the entries. My first Stuart Pawson/Charlie Priest novel and I hope that it wont be the last. I soon picked up on the charactors and enjoyed the pace and style of the story.

There’s nothing Detective Inspector Charlie Priest hates more than a case involving children. I've been spending some time this summer picking up where I left off with several mystery series that I've enjoyed in the past

There’s nothing Detective Inspector Charlie Priest hates more than a case involving children. I've been spending some time this summer picking up where I left off with several mystery series that I've enjoyed in the past. After reading The Mushroom Man, the second book in Pawson's Charlie Priest series set in Yorkshire, I tried to remember how long it had been since I'd read the first, The Picasso Scam. Five years, that's how long. I can't believe it, especially since I clearly remember enjoying that first book so much.

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest's day hasn't started well. Late for the first time in twenty years, thanks to a hangover, he's got a grisly workload to face. There's little doubt that this was murder, and when Charlie discovers that Hartley's financial advice had lost his clients a small fortune, there's no shortage of suspects either. But is the case all it seems? Thriller & Crime Police Procedural.

Are you sure you want to remove Limestone Cowboy (Detective Inspector Charlie Priest Mystery) (Detective Inspector Charlie Priest Mystery) from your list?

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest Mysteries

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest Mysteries. The Judas Sheep by Stuart Pawson is the third book in his Charlie Priest series. I find this a thoroughly enjoyable "procedural" series. DI Priest enjoys his work and his home life is relatively peaceful and happy. Although Charlie is still on sick leave after the events of the last book, he can't help but be interested in his team's current case which appears to be a murder, but the corpse has not been found. This corpse eventually does show up in a very macabre way. Meanwhile Charlie has been drawn into another case involving smuggling and drugs.

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest’s day hasn’t got off to a good start. Late for work for the first time in twenty years, thanks to a sloe gin hangover, he’s faced with the rather grisly evidence of a crime in the local park before a call comes in to say that one of his new constables has discovered a body. Hartley Goodrich has been found dead in his armchair, right beside the flowerpot that caused the gaping gash in his head. There’s little doubt that this was murder, and when Charlie discovers that Hartley’s financial advice had lost his clients a small fortune, there’s no shortage of murder suspects either. But is the case all it seems? The enquiry re-opens an investigation involving diamonds, drugs and stolen gold bullion . . . and plenty of danger to boot.

Stuart Pawson's series of books featuring Inspector Charlie Priest is another enjoyable British police procedural to add to a list including Rankin's Rebus, Robinson's Banks, and
Lovesey's Peter Diamond. Priest is the oldest Inspector in the country and plans to keep that rank since he's very much a hands-on detective. His bailiwick is an imaginary town H conveniently located east of the Pennine "Tops" somewhere in a triangle formed by Manchester, Halifax, and Huddlesfield. In addition to being a dedicated cop with a finely tuned sense of morality, as well as a finely tuned sense of humor, he's also an artist and a keen walker among the hills and mountains of his beloved Pennines. Maybe because of his sense of humor, his love of nature and beauty, Priest isn't burdened with the angst which characterizes Rebus and Banks. His Huddersfield nick is also a fairly pleasant place to work since everyone seems to like each other and work together well as a team with none of the backbiting and jealousies that plague the other fictional detectives Because of the low key approach and Priest's laid back style, the books do not have quite the same level of gravitas as those featuring Rebus, or Cooper and Fry, but the crimes Priest and his team investigate are right out of the headlines and are violent and ugly. This particular case involves an apparent suicide but it's strangeness makes Priest take a closer look.
Along the way, he uncovers a pattern a fraud and other serious crimes.

While it is not essential to read the books in order, I'd recommend doing since most of the characters are permanent and there are changes in Charlie's life. It's a highly enjoyable series and Priest is an attractive and likeable protagonist.

If you enjoy British mysteries in which the setting seeps into the plot, you'll appreciate this modern Yorkshire mystery which is full of local color and crime. Described as Yorshire's answer to Inspector Morse, Detective Inspector Charlie Priest is much less curmudgeonly and more humorous than Morse. I'd date either of them.

This is one of Charlie's less dark mysteries. No crimes involving children or small animals--well, a few animals make appearances but most thrive. In this latest Charlie Priest detective novel, a financial adviser has died a suspicious death. Did he flub up someone's taxes or does more lie beneath the surface than accounting errors? Charlie investigates the worlds of diamonds, drugs and hidden gold--a heady mix that leads Charlie on a trail with many detours populated by nefarious characters and suspicious situations which offer Charlie fodder for his quips and witty observations. If you're in the mood for an entertaining escape and amusing whodunit, you'll enjoy accompanying Charlie while he solves the latest crime challenges in murky and moody Yorkshire which is the perfect foil to Charlie's sunny disposition. Charlie's love interest, Annabelle, adds to the flavor of the story. I enjoyed this mystery--it lived up to the excellence of the series.

This is the seventh in the DI Charlie Priest series that I have read and look forward to more from Pawson. Priest is a likable fellow with very human traits and foibles doing a difficult job well. Lots of police lingo and acronyms that US readers will be challenged to decipher. This book combines a routine vandal event with murder, old crimes, fraud and mayhem. The end is clever and amusing. Yorkshire has both rural and urban textures and Pawson combines both in his stories. It would be good to have him do a bit more hiking on the moors.

over long, boring.

Up to the writers usual good standard. A detective with a northern sense of humour.

Good story and mostly good writing. The characters ar e well fleshed out and Mr. Pawson is never predictable.

Unfortunately, have read them all ...will there be more? Even though I read them out of sequence, Charlie is a likable character and I the descriptions of the rugged landscape were enthralling.
All the Charlie Priest series are good reads so I'm not going to review the other Priest,s you've asked about
