Crow displays what a Publishers Weekly critic termed a "wry overview of English country life in decline. A Publishers Weekly critic noted that although Landon loses his wits around women, "as an investigator he's canny enough to keep us enthralled. Library Journal reviewer Rex E. Klett recommended A Form of Death for its "clear, practiced prose, cleverly twisted plotting, sustained tension, and detailed police procedure.
He is left alone when his younger and extremely wealthy wife travels to Singapore on a business trip accompanied by what Klett called "a very attentive corporate lawyer. In an effort to save his reputation, Ward begins an investigation that leads him on a deadly trail of drugs and deceit. Marilyn Stasio commented in her review of the book for the New York Times Book Review: "Lewis smartly moves the hero in and out of his bind while making his devotion to his shady waterfront clientele entirely understandable. Another team, investigating a peat bog at the edge of Wolfcleugh Woods, finds a desiccated body there.
A land-development company looking to plow roads and build houses in the woods owned by Steven Brand-Ruckley comes into conflict with an environmental group. Meanwhile Landon finds another body; this time, it is that of a young student from New Zealand , who is distantly related to Brand-Ruckley. A critic for Kirkus Reviews commented that the book offers an "interesting background and convoluted plot, though not quite enough of likable, curmudgeonly Detective Chief Inspector Culpeper—and a bit too much of nebbishy Arnold. It is the body of an intinerant gypsy, horribly butchered and abandoned.
Landon is subsequently threatened by the members of a cult known to favor blood sacrifice, but when he contacts the local authorities to discuss his suspicions that the cult members are involved in the killing, his fears are dismissed offhandedly. Landon is later the victim of a horrendous assault.
Sybil Steinberg, writing in Publishers Weekly, called The Devil Is Dead an "intelligent, nicely textured mystery [that] gathers speed and races to a thrilling conclusion. Landon's adventures continue in Bloodeagle, which finds the archaeologist inspecting the excavation site for a new bridge. He is to ensure that no artifacts will be destroyed or disturbed by the construction.
Soon, however, the local police turn to him for help with their investigation of a killing that involved a bloody technique known to have been used by the ancient Vikings. As the case is unraveled, the murderer's connections to the Vikings and to a more contemporary group are probed.
This "absorbing" novel provides readers with a "surprising but satisfying" resolution, according to Emily Melton in Booklist. A Publishers Weekly reviewer commented less favorably on the book, noting that while many of the author's stories are "crisply plotted," this one is "overwrought. Arnold Landon's sixteenth adventure, titled Grave Error, finds the timid archaeologist testifying in court about the authenticity of a cauldron, reputed to be a Celtic artifact, that is stolen and sold on the black market.
Although Landon finds the cauldron to be authentic, his expertise is undermined by James MacLean, a professor with considerably more personal style than Landon possesses. Landon ends up disgraced. A Publishers Weekly reviewer commented that while this story's plot is not inherently suspenseful, "the book's strength lies in the relationships among the characters.poithriccoseci.ml/guardians-of-the-dragon-chapter.php

Lewis once told CA: "I maintain an interest in law and now write articles on legal history. Many of these are concerned with scandals in Victorian society. I have also read pieces on law and life in Victorian Northumberland on the radio program Brought to Justice. Fiction remains an escape, but Victorian studies now take up more of my time.
