Olive Etchells has only written two books in her Channon and
Bowles series and I read the first No Corners for the Devil.┬áKaren’s
review at Eurocrime…


is a little more enthusiastic than I would be but the book certainly had
some individual qualities. There were elements of the family saga
(which I understand is what Etchells wrote before crime) about it;
attention is strongly focussed on the central family – the Baxters.
This book is another set in Cornwall – at least three books by
different authors I read in this period had a Cornish setting; if
it is not careful Cornwall will be getting like Midsomer!
