An Alan Saxon Mystery by Keith Miles
Review: Ten years have lapsed between mysteries in this series, and for Bermuda Grass, the fifth Alan Saxon mystery, it was time well spent by the author, Keith Miles.
You don't have to be a golfing aficinado to enjoy this series. Miles may use golfing as a setting (and in this particular book, golfing as a sport is all but absent), however, the mysteries he crafts are interesting in and of themselves. Alan Saxon continues to evolve as a character, and in Bermuda Grass, all his strengths and weaknesses are admirably on display. The island setting adds to the intrigue of the reasonably presented, but nonetheless fairly complex, plot.
Keith Miles writes under two other names, Edward Marston (the Nicholas Bracewell mysteries, the Domesday mystery series, and the Christropher Redmayne series) and Conrad Allen (the George Port Dillman mystery books set on historical ships), but the Alan Saxon mysteries continues to be among his best. Let's hope another ten years doesn't pass before the next one.
