Inspector David Graham Box Set

“Inspector David Graham is not only a cracker jack detective, he is also a charming, thoughtful man. I always felt bad for him losing his wife and daughter. He seems like such lonely man who holds others at arms length. Now there is a hint of possible romance. I know it may take another book of two for this to develop but I can wait.

I enjoyed each of the 4 books in this boxed set. Each one is well written with interesting plots. The officers are developing new policing skills under the command of Inspector Graham. The recurring characters are a likeable crew. I look forward to reading what will happen next.”
