The Cipher Garden was a well told yarn involving Daniel Kind's newly purchased house and its derelict garden. As his relationship with Miranda falls by the wayside he is busily deciphering the Cipher Garden planted years ago by a grieving set of parents. If you love gruesome, bloody murder skip Martin Edward's books. His stories involve murder and the solving of the crime but the griminess and mayhem are all in the past and you, the reader, can imagine it but don't have it rubbed in your face.

Hannah contemplated several possible answers before saying, ‘Yes, I’m fine. We could go away somewhere. Spend a bit of time together. You’re due plenty of leave. The coffee he’d made was bitter on her tongue but she drained the cup anyway. Better make the most of his solicitude; it wouldn’t last. At once she rebuked herself for cynicism. He was making an effort. She slid off the stool.

Martin Edwards (born 7 July 1955), whose full name is Kenneth Martin Edwards, is a British crime novelist, critic and solicitor. Martin Edwards was born in Knutsford and educated in Cheshire (at Sir John Deane's Grammar School, where one of his teachers was Robert Westall, who later became a successful children's author) and at Balliol College, Oxford University, where he took a first class honours degree in Jurisprudence in 1977.

Enlisting the help of Warren’s former business partner, garden designer Peter Flint, he is drawn into the mystery of the murder.

Fourth novel in the highly-acclaimed harry devlin crime series. Martin Edwards is head of employment law at Liverpool and Manchester solicitors, Mace & Jones. On Leap Year Day in 1964, an attractive teenager called Carole Jeffries was strangled in a Liverpool park. He lives with his wife and two children in Cheshire.

What about the cipher garden, then? You kept your cards close to your chest when . Even now most of his books were in crates.

What about the cipher garden, then? You kept your cards close to your chest when you got home. They didn’t disturb the cipher garden, or betray the Quillers’ secret. Why should they? It was a private sorrow. A handful of whodunits squatted on low shelves alongside a pile of CDs and a snap he’d taken of Miranda, showing off her long smooth legs as she lazed on a recliner by the tarn. There was nothing to remind him of Oxford, far less of Aimee.

A friend on the Amazon book forum recommended the first in this series, The Coffin Trail, just before I left on a trip. I liked it enough that I immediately picked up this second book.

While I did enjoy parts of “Cipher Garden”, I didn’t like it as much as the first. The first in the series focused on the likable two main characters and setting up their story, but much of this book is spent with those involved with the current cold case and told from their perspective. And, unfortunately, none of those characters is particularly interesting or likeable. I found the four women suspects of approximately the same age to be mostly interchangeable and frequently had to pause to remember who was who. In addition, the solution was one found largely by coincidence with facts revealed only late in the book. And the “Cipher Garden” puzzle was irrelevant and appears thrown in merely to give the historian detective an excuse to meddle with the suspects- and give the book a cool title :)

While “Cipher Garden wasn’t a bad book, I suspect that as I look back over the series (which I plan to continue) it will be one that I could have skipped.

I am thoroughly enjoying every bite of Martin Edwards Lake District mysteries. I started at book one and am now reading The Serpent Pool (all available in e-editions).

The Cipher Garden was a well told yarn involving Daniel Kind's newly purchased house and its derelict garden. As his relationship with Miranda falls by the wayside he is busily deciphering the Cipher Garden planted years ago by a grieving set of parents.

Meanwhile, Hannah, the demoted detective, has been called in to solve another murder and as seems to happen in Martin Edwards books Daniel Kind gets involved and helps solve the murder.

For me, the murders do not the story make. The story rambles around and collects interesting characters from a village chock full of eccentric folk. I love all their stories and the detailed descriptions of the Lake District environs. I have visited some of these places numerous times and every time I see a familiar name and read the characters impression I am transported back to my visit and my own impressions. My memories of the same place are often different from Mr. Edwards, because I have been there as a tourist not as a resident, but I find the way he weaves the place name in to his story spellbinding.

If you love gruesome, bloody murder skip Martin Edward's books. His stories involve murder and the solving of the crime but the griminess and mayhem are all in the past and you, the reader, can imagine it but don't have it rubbed in your face.

Martin Edwards has improved over time. His second book is about an old unsolved murder brought to life once more by a letter to the police, as well as several of the principals in the case. Meanwhile, Daniel Kind is trying to solve a mystery in his garden...called the cipher garden. With believable characters and fast-paced action, Mr. Edwards writes a good novel. Twists and turns lead us to the killer, but not before some horrendous things take place. Well written; I like the series very much and will continue to read them.

Martin Edwards is a modern day mystery writer who is not averse to using classing detective story elements in his work. He has a good plot, a professional and amateur detective investigating, a very clever red-herring right at the beginning, and a few other surprises of the Golden Age genre along the way.
A master gardener was murdered several years previously without the murderer ever caught. Then an anonymous letter to the police accuses the victim's wife of the murder. And other anonymous letters also appear. The way it all coalesces and develops is the story told by a modern master who never forgets he is a contemporay writer nor the legacy of classic detective fiction.

Lake Distict #2 - The Cipher Garden was pretty interesting. The book held my attention, had enough twists and turns to keep it interesting and had the added interest of both the mystery of the garden and the romantic tension of the two main characters. I am now on to reading mystery #3 - and if it is as good or better I will certainly continue to recommend, and read, this author.

Pair an Oxford historian with a cold case cop and surprise! Great thread here and a developing relationship that will continue to tease in later books. Good suspense and very likable and multi-faceted characters. Pair this with the enchanting Lake District of England and the result is a winner.

This is a continuation of historian Daniel Kind and police detective Hannah Scarlett. It's by Martin Edwards, a British author. It's about the Lake District in England. I had never heard of Cipher Gardens before this book. This is where the garden is laid out and items are left buried throughout with clues as to why the garden was created. Of course there's a murder to solve. If you love British authors, you will enjoy reading Martin Edwards. He is right up there with Louise Penny.
This read started out interesting and did not stop. It is the first book I've read in this series however it is not the first book which did not prove a hindrance. I am now interested and will purchase the first book.
