Evans Above by Rhys Bowen

Book Jacket
This is the first book in the Constable Evans Mysteries. Evan Evans leaves the city to be a policeman in a small Welsh village that is full of quaint characters that he has to learn to deal with. The village is so small he is afraid that it will be boring, but soon he is called to investigate crimes that are equal to the city he has left. Rhys Bowen is a great mystery writer and the setting in Wales gives it a different twist. The titles of the books are always clever and have a twist on the Evans name. Try one and you will be looking for more.
