The Potato Man, a serial rapist who eluded then-rookie cop Alan Markby 20 years earlier, resurfaces in Ann Granger's A Restless Evil: A Mitchell and Markby Mystery, the 14th installment in this inventive series. Once again, as Markby and lover Meredith Mitchell investigate some human bones uncovered in Stovey Woods, the author demonstrates her skill at updating the traditional English village murder mystery.
