Description du produit

Revue de presse

'It is always a pleasure to read Aline Templeton, but THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP must surely be her best book to date. Aline's characters are so beautifully drawn . . .' (J Wallis Martin)

'This is a book for a long train journey or a wet weekend with no other demands, the better to immerse oneself in the strongly-delineated characters, complex plotting and rich allegory: a really satisfactory read.' (Mystery Women)

'Loved it. She has become the crime czar of the Scottish small town!' (Val McDermid)

'In fictional terms the combination of domesticity and detection is very appealing, especially when it comes with a detailed, vivid portrayal of a complete society . . . an interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual series.' (Literary Review)

'Loved it' (Val McDermid)

'It is always a pleasure to read Aline Templeton, but THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP must surely be her best book to date. Aline's characters are so beautifully drawn that turning the final page is almost like bidding old friends farewell. However, I am sure I will meet the residents of Knockhaven again, and hopefully, that will be in the not-too-distant future.' (J Wallis Martin)

An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel. (Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH)

'A fascinating cast of possible villains is explored in this skilfully plotted and well-paced novel, each vividly described, entirely believable and never sliding into the usual parodies of country folk. But its real strength is DI Marjory Fleming, both tough and vulnerable as she struggles to track down the killer . . . Templeton moves easily between laughter and tragedy . . . This book is a delight, from its leisurely start to the moving and unexpected finish. Even better, it's the second in a series, so there's more pleasure to come.' (Guardian)

Aline Templeton has been producing quietly intelligent, carefully plotted thrillers for years. Templeton creates a tight, convincing band of characters and has the ability to spin her story beyond immediate events to paint a picture of a small rural community in crisis. She is good at managing her plot and revealing details slowly. She has demonstrated that, just when we thought Scotland was saturated with detectives, a strong woman can elbow her way in and find a unique niche. (Scotsman on COLD IN THE EARTH)

A compelling read. (Margaret Yorke on COLD IN THE EARTH)

Templeton crafts a nifty plot amid the dour and inward-looking denizens of a Fenland village (Scotsman on LAST ACT OF ALL)

Templeton has wit, a strong narrative sense and a dab hand with atmospherics (Literary Review on LAST ACT OF ALL)

Aline Templeton has a wondrously deft, unpretentiously beautiful style, full of good things (Hampstead & Highgate Express on THE TRUMPET)

This astringent tale of psychological suspense set in a remote Welsh valley uses the landscape with an almost visionary splendour (The Times on NIGHT AND SILENCE)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The second book in the critically acclaimed DI Marjory Fleming series.

'Loved it. She has become the crime czar of the Scottish small town!' Val McDermid

'In fictional terms the combination of domesticity and detection is very appealing, especially when it comes with a detailed, vivid portrayal of a complete society.' Literary Review

The wreck of the Knockhaven lifeboat with the loss of all three of its crew is a hard blow for the small Scottish town. But it's harder still when DS Tam MacNee discovers that it isn't simply a tragic accident.

Was it just the act of vandals, bored in a fishing port stricken with unemployment? Could it be linked to the drugs trade which has taken root in the locality? Or is there someone who, in their determination to kill one person, is callous enough to take two innocent lives? And if so, who is the intended victim?

As DI Marjory Fleming and her team investigate multiple murders, with a whole community hungry for justice, the pressure - professional and personal - is on.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 more solid even than the first book 16 juillet 2015
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur

I liked the first book in the series a lot, though it had rough spots. The overly-dramatic dysfunctional family at its center, for one, and a spate of foot and mouth disease, and the DI's neediness around her abusive father, on top of the murder. Those were rookie mistakes in a way--piling drama on drama and thinking that makes the story more exciting. This book has none of that gilding of the lily, and is stronger for the lack. Here DI Fleming comes into her own as a strong leader and parent, despite the new hire who tries to work on everyone else's insecurities. The community becomes a character in itself, and pulls together both for better (turning out to support the lifeboat and to support the bereaved) and for worse (the pernicious gossip that both helps and hinders the case). The emotional nuances are especially welldrawn, and the relationships between the police are realistically complex. I'm also very glad that Laura, the psychologist from the first story who's settled in town, has a clear sense of psychology's limits. When Margie consults with her, Laura doesn't diagnose the killer or precisely predict his/her psychology, but simply puts forward suggestions about possible character traits and how they might affect the killer's personality and reasoning. The one main character we see less of in this book is Fleming's husband, Bill. I think he makes a very good foil for her and hope to hear more from him in future books.

Enjoyed meeting Templeton's characters, each memorable in their own way. This police procedural hums along with twists and turns, and side stories bring depth to the main plot's characters. Marjory Fleming faces all the challenges that come with her professional police role, while navigating mothering a teen daughter, being a supportive wife to her farmer husband, and entering the years where adult children begin to recognize their parents' inevitable decline. It's a full plate and her attempts to manage it all make her feel more authentically human.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoughtful study 27 mars 2014
Par DiF - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Thoughtful study of the residents of the small town where DI Fleming resides. And where a slew of murders along with drug infestation festers amidst gossip abound that blocks law-enforcement' s attempts to get at the truths behind those interruptions to the tranquility that once abided.
The author first acquaints the reader with the character and characters of the normally tranquil, though not necessarily untroubled, town. Then tragedy erupts. And at this point, the reader almost feels a part of the town, making the tragic interruptions almost personal. She skillfully makes the reader a part of the investigative team, while showing how personal interactions and outside lives of the investigators themselves play against the task at hand.
As a mystery alone, I would have probably given four stars, but the insightful study of the characters as well as of the interconnectedness of all aspects of the small town life as it plays against even the legal investigation demands the fifth star. The mystery is the vehicle allowing the psychological study, which is profoundly well-executed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid second book in a series 20 juillet 2013

This book is the second in the Marjorie Fleming series (a British police procedural) by Aline Templeton. The characters are well-drawn and believable. The writing style and sense of place remind me of Ann Cleeve's Shetland series. There is a small circle of suspects, and I had trouble working out whodunit! I am very much enjoying this author and I have purchased the rest of the series on the strength of the first two books.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Engrossing police procedural 16 août 2014

SET in the southwest of Scotland, The Darkness and the Deep centers on the wreck of a lifeboat and the death of three of its crew. When D.I. Fleming and her team discover the wreck was orchestrated,not merely a tragic accident, they have to delve through loads of possible connections, multiple people with possible motives, and even more dead ends. Templeton does a laudable job creating the setting and developing both major and minor characters, as well as crafting a suspenseful, believable plot. Very engrossing and highly recommended for fans of tightly plotted police procedurals. I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the series.
