I love your delight at the thought of Mr Knightley getting his come-uppance!

I'm embarrassed to say I've never read any Reginald Hill. But your enthusiasm is contagious. Another name to be added to my already dangerously tottering tbr pile.

The Brenda and Effie books sound delightful. Most of them are not available in this country. My library never heard of them. But I'll try and track down what I can. ;)

I've just read the first Brenda and Effie and loved it so I am hoping to find the others in my library when it re-opens in a couple of weeks after a revamp.
I wasn't sure what to expect from them but I saw them recommended on a couple of blogs and they are set in Whitby (one of my favourite places in the world) and I was very pleasantly surprised.
I haven't read any Reginald Hill - I wasn't that keen on what I saw of the Dalziel and Pascoe TV series which is probably what put me off, but I think I need to try the Joe Sixsmith books - if only because I grew up in Luton!

Geranium C - yes, always thought Knightley would be a blighter to live with.

Yvette - Thank you for visiting Yvette. Yes, TBR piles can totter dangerously - blog reading is a perilous business.

Liz - Hope strike lucky in library. I think you're right about starting with Joe Sixsmith if you've been put off by the D&P TV series. There's a lot to be said for the short story colllection I mentioned above There are No Ghosts in the Soviet Union - for the sake of economy I dwelled on the Austen parody but the title piece is excellent and no real D&P - the D&P peice manages to be about something else entirely!
