Well, to be honest, they probably are due a holiday, and Miss Carmody likes the City and is familiar with a particularly suitable hotel in the old town, so why not go in search of a water nymph in an English city backwater? Not all of Connie's complaints go unheard however, and she manages to convince her Aunt Prissie that maybe Edris isn't all there. Enter, stage left, Mrs Bradley, part-time investigator, part-time Freudian psycho-therapist and star of some 66 of Mitchell's odd novels. Adela Bradley is a friend of the Carmody's and is asked to join them unobtrusively at the hotel and "observe" Edris to see whether his obsession with the naiad really is cause for concern or not.
When a young boy is found drowned in unlikely circumstances, it is Adela's investigative skills that are required rather than her Freudian analysis. A second body is found and suspicion begins to fall very close to home. For those not familiar with Mitchell's oeuvre and that includes me this is a wonderful introduction. It is full of the classic ingredients of the genre: ghosts, unexplained injuries, secret passages, inefficient policemen, Scottish caricatures for hotel servants and the fundamental importance of the arcane knowledge of fly-fishing. Each chapter is headed with a rural quotation: extracts from the Diary of A Country Parson , or The Compleat Angler or A Summer on the Test — not all of which seem immediately relevant to the plot in hand, but which serve to embed the rurality of the whole.
Mitchell herself doesn't go in for long descriptions of place. Although she clearly knows her ragged robin from her rambling rose, settings are limited to what we really need to know. Prosecutors say he posed as a female nurse, advising them on suicide.
His lawyer said the two were already suicidal, and cited freedom of speech. They said he discussed suicide with as many as 20 people online, and entered into suicide pacts with 10, at least five of whom killed themselves.

Despite police and the FBI refusing to investigate the case, Mrs Bray remained determined to unmask the online voyeur, who posed as a woman in her 20s to encourage depressed and suicidal people, mostly teenagers, to commit to a suicide. Eventually she managed to convince police in Minnesota, USA, to take on the case and their inquiries resulted in the arrest of Melchert-Dinkel.
Mrs Blay admits she remains a novice when it comes to the internet, and had to rely on the help of her son, Paul, to track down the nurse, who was using aliases such as Li Dao and Falcon Girl.
