The Cherringham crime series is their first fictional transatlantic collaboration. +++ "A clever twist, which you might - or might not - have spotted." Bookbag +++ "Comparisons with 'Midsomer Murders' [...] are inevitable, but 'Cherringham' comes out on top when it comes to originality and - probably most crucially - the avoidance of irritating stereotypes." Killing Time Crime +++ "Sarah and Jack make an interesting combination. [...] The perfect partnership, which I can't wait to see develop over the next 11 episodes." Shaz's Book BlogShow book
