⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5 stars


Where There’s a Will is a wonderfully paced mystery and, as the first installment in the Inspector Stone series, sets the stage for a great British investigative saga. 

Inspector Stone is a good guy, a hardworking inspector, so it was easy to invest myself in his endeavors. We learn a little bit about his family, a topic I hope we’ll come back to in future installments. Sacrificing details about his family was a necessary evil given all that transpires with Stone’s criminal cases. 

There’s a lot going on in this book. While in the midst of investigating an armed robbery and a hit and run accident, the daughter of a rich businessman is kidnapped for ransom. How much can one inspector juggle? Apparently quite a lot. There were a ton of details to keep straight between the various cases, but Alex Carver did a good job keeping them interesting. It could’ve been easy to lose readers in all the tiny details.

Interspersed in Inspector Stone’s side of the narrative, we are treated to parts of the story from the POV of Alice, the kidnapped teenager, and her captors. I enjoyed these parts of the story immensely as they helped to maintain a high level of tension. 

Overall, this was a very well written mystery. Those who love detective stories will enjoy Where There’s a Will. I eagerly await Inspector Stone’s next case.
