The spread of security cameras, not merely in our cities but even in the smallest towns, fills me with despair. Few creatures are more deserving of our contempt than the voyeur. Few creatures are more deserving of our contempt than the voyeur of explanation, not excuse. Frankly, I had reached an age of invisibility. People would pass me in the street without a second glance. Old age does that to us In the eyes of others we become at best insignificant, at worst a burden on the young and productive.

This is the third book in Martin Edwards’ Lake District mystery series but it stands well on its own. I haven’t read the first two yet – The Coffin Trail and The Cipher Garden – but I will. I only wish I’d come across these books before. Soon attention turns to the Arsenic Labyrinth, hidden in the hills on Mispickel Scar. The labyrinth was on the ground level with shafts and tunnels from the mines winding around the length and breadth of the Scar. The author’s note at the end reveals that arsenic was never mined in Cumbria. The arsenic works brought about the ruin of the Inchmore family and Mispickel Scar is said to be cursed.

I read the first Martin Edwards Lake District mystery (The Coffin Trail) because the Kindle edition sold for 99 cents, and that’s pretty good for something to read in bed before falling asleep. I thought it was pretty decent, though the main characters (Hannah, the detective, and Daniel, the historian) were a bit two dimensional and somewhat clichéd. Despite that, the story kept my interest, the price was right, and the series helped me pass the time while in airports and planes.

The Arsenic Labyrinth is the best of the three Lake District Mysteries that I have read so far. In it, Edwards continues developing his “sleuths”, which might, at some point, actually develop some kind of personality. More interestingly, in this book he does a very good job of bringing his other characters to life. Essentially, he builds up the scenery and history of the place, and he fleshes out the characters involved in the crimes to the point where you start relating to them, even though you might not want to. In fact, a good part of the action is seen through the eyes of one of the murderers, which is a bit of a modern twist on the genre of the English Cozy, and carries the plot forward nicely.

This is an easy read and a good way to spend some time if time needs “a-spendin’”.

This book begins with the type of mystery story in which the reader knows more about what is going on than the detectives seeking the reasons for finding why and how a murder took place, Suffice to say that the reader thinks he knows what transpired but it is much better to go along and enjoy the story instead of coming to conclusions too soon.
The lead detective and her historian friend figure it out in the end but the romantic problems of various characters remain as unsettled as ever, something you wouldn't or shouldn't expect from such smart people.
All in all, however,a great story

Daniel and Hannah are on the trail once more. Seemingly divergent paths combine once again to have them chasing the same goal. A newspaper story on the tenth anniversary of a woman's disappearance has Hannah checking out her vanishing. The cast of characters is broad and some are nefarious indeed. While we know from the beginning who killed the woman, we don't know why. That story is revealed to us at the end of the book - and it's a doozy. Along the way, we discover another dead body ... and yet another. The second dead body turns into a great subplot; one that makes Daniel's research dovetail with Hannah's. Great book. Great writing.

This novel is NOT a classic British police procedural, as some readers have suggested. This guy is no modern Basil Thomson. With all the couplings and un-couplings of people (most hetero-but one homosexual) it must have great appeal to those readers who love the TV soap opera.
Filter that out and you might have a well-crafted mystery, but then if you filtered out these drifting "relationships' there would be no story.

Just finished this one and have purchased two more in the series for a planned trip (love my kindle fire for trips). I thought that I had the mystery solved but was wrong-my kind of book

Please note that Waterloo Sunset is not a Lake District Mystery-it is in the Harry Devlin series by the same author. So far there are 6 books in the Lake District series
1 The coffin Trail
2 The Cipher Garden
3 The Arsenic Labyrinth
4 The Serpent Pool
5 The Hanging Wood
6 The Frozen Shroud

I hadn't read any of the other books, in the series, but I didn't have any problems jumping in with this one. This is well written, great characters, and a good plot. I enjoyed this one, and will read more books in the series.

I am enjoying this series of books. I give it high ratings for being highly readable and with great characters. Totally enjoy the setting of the Lake District--it sent me to the internet to read more on the area. Rooting for the relationship to develop. Thanking the powers that be for authors like this who keep me happy!
Enjoyed the twists and turns as well as less than perfectly solved crime. Looking forward to next book and hoping Hannah and Daniel finally get frisky!
