    1. Liza Perrat on said:

      After Behind Closed Doors, Raw Material, Tread Softly and Cold Pressed, JJ Marsh has once again excelled in the international crime genre with the fifth in her Beatrice Stubbs series, Human Rites.By now I have become very attached to her female sleuth, Beatrice Stubbs, with all her quirks and flaws, and feel as if I’ve evolved along with this character, over the course of the books. So, whilst each story can be read as a standalone, I would recommend starting with the first, Behind Closed Door [...]

      The latest book in JJ Marsh’s series of European based crime thrillers features Scotland Yard’s Detective Inspector Beatrice Stubbs. It had a lot to live up to in terms of my expectations as I’ve read and very much enjoyed the three previous books. It didn’t disappoint.Beautifully described and fascinating settings, compelling, suspenseful and twisting plotlines and a cast of wonderful characters both familiar and new. You don’t have to have read the earlier books in order to follow th [...]

      An accomplished and original crime novel that’s a serious pleasure to read, “Human Rites” infuses JJ Marsh’s subtle sharpness into its menace, its urbanity and its humour. Spare, spectral, classy and down-to-earth, all at once, it manages to pack resonant detail into its natural coolness of exposition, with intriguing dives into international art theft, European police procedures and Expressionist art history, among other worlds of endeavour, along with sparky glimpses of contemporary ur [...]

      HUMAN RITES by JJ Marsh is the 5th title in the Beatrice Stubbs mystery series. I think it is absolutely brilliant.Adrian Harvey (Beatrice’s neighbor and close friend) is being stalked by a nun; his mail is tampered with and graffiti is found on his wine shop window. He is upset and very puzzled with this harassment. Who is targeting him and why? He joins Beatrice for a few days in Hamburg where she is working on a series of related art thefts, and arranges to meet ex-boyfriend Holger - a ‘g [...]

      An exciting and well-paced plot, another combination of great settings, and the introduction of several great new characters ensured that this was as gripping a read as its predecessors.This is latest book in JJ Marsh's series of European based crime thrillers. As before it features, Scotland Yard's Detective Inspector Beatrice Stubbs. It had a lot to live up to in terms of my expectations as I've read and very much enjoyed the three previous books.

      I wasn't sure what to expect from Human Rites by J.J. Marsh when I first started the book. For some reason, I was afraid it was going to be a cozy mystery. As I continued to read, I became more involved with the characters and the plot(s). The book is the fifth installment in a series featuring Scotland Yard D.I. Beatrice Stubbs.There are two intertwining plot lines. One is the harassment (that becomes more and more sinister) of Beatrice's gay friend Adrian Harvey. The other is the case Beatrice [...]

      I would like to thank Netgalley and Cameron Marketing and Publicity Ltd for a review copy of Human Rites, the fifth novel to feature DI Beatrice Stubbs.Beatrice is dreaming of retirement and a cushy months long secondment to the Caribbean to ease her out of the Met but it's not to be as Superintendent Hamilton has earmarked her for Operation Horseshoe, a new interracial initiative. When Hamilton goes into hospital unexpectedly Beatrice and her colleagues take advantage to assign Dawn to Operatio [...]

      Human Rites is the fifth in the Beatrice Stubbs series and I’m glad to say that it sparkles as brightly as the rest. Inspector Stubbs herself is a really appealing heroine. A woman of a certain age she has the fictional sleuth’s obligatory demons, but also a relish for life that is enormously attractive. As this book begins she is looking forward to early retirement with long-term partner, Matthew, but is soon globe-trotting again to a freezing December Hamburg on the track of a gang of inte [...]

      Ever since Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes, writers of detective fiction have understood that their detective must have identifiable characteristics. For many, it seems a case of the odder the better. When JJ Marsh created the Scotland Yard policewoman Beatrice Stubbs, she hit on a novel idea: to make Beatrice an absolutely recognisable normal human being – someone just like you or me with all the problems normal people have and making the mistakes normal people make. Refreshing does no [...]

      This is the 5th Beatrice Stubbs book but the first one I read, and this review is going to be short because I can't wait to catch up with the others in the series. It's a pacy and intelligent crime novel, beautifully written, in other words streets ahead of most books in this genre. Beatrice is perfect, by which I mean she is the opposite. In fact all the characters are compelling (including the dog). By turns scary and moving, Human Rites is one to savour, and you could enjoy it without being a [...]

      Beatrice travels to Germany to solve a crime regarding international art theft. Adrian takes a mini vac with her and ends up in Style by himself haunted by a defrocked nun. All turns out well and Adrian makes new friends, after, of course, the new friend's house is blown up and burns to the ground.
