My Thoughts

If you are a fan of Law & Order, you're going to love its British rural counterpart, "Midsomer Murders". In the county of Midsomer, things aren't always what they seem, and there is murder lurking behind many of the well trimmed hedges. The series, which was inspired by the novels by Caroline Graham, offers a selection of murder mysteries filled with intrigue and drama. Each episode stands on its own and offers its own unique and suspenseful story-line. The season reunites a great cast with lots of British humor and  two wonderfully written, full-length mysteries. Here's a little about each one:

Death by Persuasion - A event celebrating Jane Austen becomes a real life drama when when a woman is stabbed. To put a twist on it, the murder weapon is a quill.

The Curse of the Ninth - A famous musician is found murdered--strangled by a violin string right before they are scheduled to preform. 
In addition to the full season of episodes, the DVD set also includes a behind the scenes featurette. If you want to get the advantage of a full set of amazing  stories that will leave you on the edge of your seat, than this is the box set for you. You can order Midsomer Murders Series 19, Part 2 for only $29.99 at Acorn Media or online at Amazon.
