Review; A Pretty Folly (Inspector James Given Investigations Book 2) by Charlie Garratt

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the mystery novel A Pretty Folly (Inspector James Given Investigations Book 2) by Charlie Garratt through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Netgalley
Civil blood makes civil hands unclean…

England, March 1939

Murmurs of war are rippling through Europe, and violence against Jewish people is on the rise. Inspector James Given, himself Jewish by birth, but not in practice, is busy trying to stop attacks on Jewish businesses in Coventry.

But then a murder case lands in his lap. A young girl’s body is found in the crypt of a prestigious school.

Part-mummified, it is hard to discover how long she’s lain there. But why wasn’t she reported missing?

Has no one been looking for her? And could more lives be at risk…?

My Thoughts on the Book
A Pretty Folly has an interesting setting, just prior to the outbreak of WWII, where hatred towards Jews even in the UK, is noticeable. The mystery in the book is interesting and I like the author's writing style. Inspector Given is a really likeable protagonist and I would love to read more in this series.
