    1. 3.5 starsMurder at the Nineteenth is the first, I believe, of the Lambert & Hook series by J.M. Gregson. First published in 1989, the only thing that truly sets this in the past is the lack of cell phones. The characters and the plot don't feel dated.A murder at an historic golf club to which Superintendent Lambert belongs finds him investigating people he knows. An intriguing mystery/police procedural that involves plenty of suspects and the gradual piecing together of information.NetGalley [...]

    3. A whodunnit that can sit in the bookshelf with the best.I'll have to go back and read this again more carefully to see if there were clues I missed; I couldn't work out 'whodunnit' before the inspector but was close behind. Good characters, good detective story and well set up. Enjoyed to the last word. Will be looking for more of Gregson's books.

    4. A suburban detective that quotes literature hmmmen done. That said, fun to read and aood story and plot.

    5. Good intriguing plot, loved the characters but found that the book was very, very wordy. Explanations could have been shorter.

    6. A bit boring. Lambert, the main character is fundamentally dislikeable. Why he was assigned to investigate a murder among a claustrophobic group he'd known and worked with for years is at best odd.

    7. Murder at the NineteenthThis is my first J. M. Gregson's book. Although I am not a golfer, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. English terminology is different than American, but it was very well written.

    8. I have only recently discovered J.M. Gregson and so decided to go back to the beginning, not that one would know it. The characters are already clearly developed and perfectly consistent with their later selves, as far as I know, so that it did not feel like the first in a series. It was a great story to begin with, with Lambert investigating a murder at the golf club of which he is a member, with all the personal complexities that creates. Although the book is nearly 30 years old, one is only r [...]

    9. good mystery.This is the first book by this author I have ever read and it was good. This is a good mystery it will keep you reading to learn who could of done it.
