Marjorie Eccles has yet to disappoint with a mystery novel, and this is no exception. A Death of Distinction is the 8th installment in the Gil Mayo series, and quite possibly the best, with a lively cast of characters that, as always with Eccles’ writing, are artfully crafted and painfully realistic. Beginning with a car bomb that kills a prominent member of the community and hospitalizes his young daughter, Flora, the story takes us along with Detective Superintendent Gil Mayo and his partner, the fresh-faced but fierce Inspector Abigail Moon, as they race to uncover the truth before the killer can strike again. With suspects ranging from inmates with a grudge to the handsome doctor who seems to have taken a shine to Flora, the reader is kept guessing right along with the duo as they dig into secrets too-long-kept, uncovering sinister truths that someone would kill for. If you only read one book by Marjorie Eccles, although I can’t fathom why you would, make sure it is A Death of Distinction.

I think this book is one of the best of the Gil Mayo series. "A Death of Distinction" is the 8th installment, and Eccles really gets all important aspects of this example of the English mystery genre just about perfect. The plot involving the murder of a well-respected governor of a youth prison in Lavenstock is engrossing and well developed. The suspects and other locals related to the plot are once again unique representations of the human race, are well drawn with their egoisms and problems. Even though one may suspect early who the murderer is, wanting to know the reason for the crimes will keep the reader absorbed.

Eccles is a good writer--the dialogue is believable and her prose is smooth. She really enjoys describing flowers and shrubbery in her books, sometimes overdoing it. In this book she allows herself the luxury of making one of her characters a gardener, but thankfully she keeps her descriptive passion in check.

My one complaint about Eccles's series is that the series characters are flat. Her efforts to make Mayo and company complex characters involves telling the reader what they are like rather than showing who they are. While Gil Mayo is more developed than the other characters, the worst is Inspector Abigail Moon who is supposed to be the ambitious young woman detective, and yet she is rather bland and is never shown doing anything spectacular to justify her quick rise in the department. Eccles seems so much better in developing the plot-related characters.

This was the 8th book in the Gil Mayo series, and I can really see this series going places (obviously it has already!)
In this book our favourite detective Mayo is now the boss. and as the boss he now has to play the game of politics, and be a cop. What a feat. He has to investigate the murder of an upstanding citizen, and in the process discover that the dark secrets of the town is not always good to be revealed.......
The book was really unputdownable and highly recommended.

An interesting book, with a sub plot running in it. I had read this before when it was first published and I liked it then, the second time round - it all came back to me so the story is strong for me to recall it after all these years - I still found it a little sad. Fabulous author as usual with a wonderful grasp of telling a story that draws you in.
