    1. Jeanne M Dams lives in South Bend, Indiana The Body in the Transept, which introduced Dorothy Martin, won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel Dams is also the author of Green Grow the Victims and other Hilda Johansson mysteries published by Walker Company.

    2. Author Jeanne M. Dams’ 11th novel to feature American ex-pat Dorothy Martin and her English husband Alan Nesbit, retired Chief Constable of the Belleshire Constabulary, isn’t bad. It’s just such a let-down from its predecessor, A Dark And Stormy Night, which was a pure delight.Dorothy and Allen take a well-deserved holiday to the real-life village of Broadway in the Cotswolds. While they’re there, a deaf farmer is shoved to his death, and the curious couple begin snooping. But, with an o [...]

    3. The best thing to say about 'The Evil That Men Do' is that it is instantly forgettable, once read it passes very quickly out of one's mind and a few days later one wonders what it was all about. This is a trifle sad to say because the Cotswold setting is nicely portrayed but the two characters, Dorothy Martin and Alan Nesbitt, the latter a retired chief constable, are very bland. In addition the plot is somewhat garbled and the ending (if I remember correctly) is very loose.The couple are on a w [...]

    4. Great as always! I love the characters dorothy and alan. Where can I find a husband like that? Ha Ha. Dorothy is such a likable character, maybe because I myself am getting older but I love her age related issues (creaky knees, plumpness). I hope the author keeps cranking these out.

    5. The Evil That Men Do by Jeanne M. Dams.Dorothy Martin and her husband Ret. Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt have decided to see the English village of Broadway in the Cotswolds. Touring on their own visiting the lovely small shopping areas and pubs as well as those cozy homes the Cotswolds is famous for is something they've out off for far too long.The climbing over hill and dale is not exactly what the doctor ordered for Dorothy's replaced knees. It's more of a struggle to keep up with Alan than a [...]

    6. Not as satisfying as some of her other books. The mystery itself was quite weak--it's really the sleuth, her husband, and England itself that you really enjoy in this outting of the series.

    7. The Evil That Men Do is the next installment of the Dorothy Martin mystery series by Jeanne M. Dams (I'm reading her most recent three to get caught up in the series and to fulfill a square on the Book Bingo challenge). In this outing, Dorothy and her husband, Alan Nesbitt, are on a walking holiday in the Cotswalds. They take a break from their tour to stay at a lovely little bed and breakfast in the beautiful little town of Broadway--making short day-trip walks from their "home base." On one of [...]

    8. Book ReviewTitle: The evil that men doAuthor: Jeanne M. DamsGenre: Horror/CrimeRating: **Review: A retired Chief Constable and his American spouse are enjoying the beauties of a holiday in the Cotswolds when they stumble upon a body.Despite Alan’s Nesbitt’s unofficial status, he and Dorothy Martin are no strangers to sleuthing (A Dark and Stormy Night, 2011, etc.). So it’s no surprise that while they’re staying in a B&B in the picture-perfect English village of Broadway and enjoying [...]

    9. Dorothy Martin and her husband retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt take a holiday in the English village of Broadway in the Cotswolds. While walking, Dorothy is almost struck by a young man riding a motorcycle. This is foreshadowing for all the woes that befall them starting with finding the body of a man in a marble quarry. She is once again caught up in a murder mystery. The man was a farmer who was pushed over the edge, and, of course, Dorothy determines to find the guilty person. Little doe [...]

    10. This is book is very hard to put down. Alan and Dorothy set out on a walking tour of the Cotswolds and fall into a mystery, involving a young man staying at their B-and-B. He seems nervous and scared, and Dorothy becomes worried when he disappears, especially after Alan discovers a body in an old quarry while they are out walking. Could there be any connection between the two? Another excellent mystery in a very enjoyable series.

    11. I couldn't put this book down. It brought into play the theme of domestic violence and built quite a story around it. I enjoyed watching Dorothy mentally put herself in someone else's place in several instances and come up with important clues to what happened. I love the affectionate but not overly perfect interaction between Dorothy and her husband Alan. Somehow, Alan always manages to show up just in time when Dorothy ends up in an emergency situation. Very satisfying!

    12. American Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, are on a walking tour of the Cotswolds when Alan finds a dead body in a quarry. Although Alan is no longer an active policeman, he and Dorothy are drawn into the investigation when suspicion falls on a young man staying in their bed and breakfast, someone they've met and liked. This cozy has a slam-bang suspenseful ending, too.

    13. Although Dams is an American, she writes in the vein of traditional British mysteries. The main character, Dorothy Martin, could be mistaken for the younger married sister of Miss Jane Marple. While the Dorothy was a bit too Marpleish, I thought Dams did an outstanding job of describing the countryside.

    14. Good things: Cosy, benign, mildly entertaining, I love the UK.Bad things: They are constantly eating at some pub, at home, a restaurant, having a picnic and drinking bourbon and tea. There is more about food and drink in this book than about the actual murder.There are so few clues and so little mystery. You can't attempt to solve it like an Agatha.

    15. Dorothy Martin is off on a walking tour, and unexplained events occur. Of course, Dorothy and her husband Alan feel the need to investigate and offer their own special brand of expertise to local law enforcement officers. This time it nearly spells the end of our hero, Dorothy, when she has a very close escape near the end of the book. This is a good way to while away a few long winter evenings!

    16. I enjoy books by this author. English Cozy Mystery is one of my favorite type of reads. Jeanne M. Dams uses areas in the UK such as the Cotswolds, Iona, Cornwall in her books. I would recommend her books for a cold winter evening, fire in the fireplace and a cuppa of tea.

    17. Did not enjoy this book as much as her previous other ones, maybe because of the story line. I normally do not read books about abusive men or women, I know it happens but it is something I don't like to read before going to sleep.

    18. This one went on a little too long. And I thought the villian came out of left field and then the violence in the end was, well, a bit too violent. At least for this author it was. Not one of her best efforts, but still a good read.

    19. I love dorothy and her husbands life in england !!! Weaker than some . But jeanne dams lives in my town and gave a talk at our library once and was fantastic !! Didnt read about dorothys hats in this one

    20. Another excellent read lots going on but really enjoyable. Watson was a nice touch. Lots of good description of terrain in the south of England.

    21. I have read a couple of other books by this author which I found to have better plots. This was more of a light weight.

    22. Good entry in the seriespacing's good and the story held my interest. Loved the addition of Watson to the cast of characters. Hope we see more of him.

    23. I enjoyed the latest in the Dorothy Martin cozy mystery series very much. Great descriptions of British scenery and people as well as exciting story.

    24. A quick enjoyable read, this novel fills the bill for a British cozy mystery. I would read this author again for that escapism and British countryside tenor she captures.

    25. Skim itSimplistic storyline, pleasant but bland main characters, stick figure characters, and a lot of wasted verbiage about meals and baths and night caps.

    26. Another good murder mystery for a rainy day. Dorothy and husband Alan Nesbitt on another vacation and end up looking for a murderer.

    27. Very nicely complicated, and a very difficult though not uncommon (unfortunately) situation. __WHY__ do abusive people think it is their __right__?
