Item description for Death by Election by Patricia Hall...

By-election fever has gripped the constituency of Bradfield, and the national media circus has descended on the town - or so it seems to Laura Ackroyd, the reporter from the local newspaper who knows the town and its politics a great deal better than the self-styled experts hot off the train from London. Laura Ackroyd is not only assigned to cover Richard Thurston and his campaign, but is also expected to follow up other news: such as the police investigation into the discovery of an unidentified body on the moors; the student campaign to 'out' various public figures; and the hints of some dirty dealings in the corridors of the town hall. As Laura peels away the veneer of each story, she discovers a tangle of old and new indiscretions, emotional blackmail and a disturbing amount of violence, and when the latter is turned against herself, she becomes aware that there is a common thread to all these matters which leads to the main players taking a murderous road to Westminster. In an intriguing mystery, which is as much whydunnit as whodunnit, the spotlight of publicity turns out to be a curtain-raiser on a scandal which proves physically and politically fatal to the villain and victim."

Reviews - What do customers think about Death by Election?

Great start to the fabulous Yorkshire series  Jun 29, 2006
If you like British police procedurals, you'll love this series. Michael Thackeray is an intense, haunted DCI who finds himself attracted to a dynamic journalist, Laura Ackroyd, in a working class mill town in Yorkshire.

Their attraction (and later romance)is the counterpoint to these well written procedurals. Patricia Hall catches the wonderful social nuances of class and culture in Bradfield. This is a great introduction to a wonderful series. The mystery to me is why I never heard of this author until recently. The series is uniformly well-written and they are equal to or superior to some better known British mystery writers including Elizabeth George.

Give it a try. I think you'll thoroughly enjoy yourself.
