She spends each month from then on investigating interwoven & seemingly unconnected crimes & mysteries. In classic whodunnit style, the emphasis is on the puzzle and the solution. She thinks hacking and the like, unethical and uninteresting. ‘Where’s the challenge in that?’ asks the detective who’s set herself the task of solving each case through brainpower alone.
In some of the cases, the reader can do no more than sit back and enjoy the ride. In others the reader has the same opportunity as Jane to discover the truth, with clues and red herrings sprinkled throughout.
The series also introduces the reader to a host of regular characters in the form of Jane's family, friends and neighbours, each of whom have their own adventures. Through flashback, we get to meet her at various stages throughout her life.
However much the plots twist and serve to misdirect, however much effort our detective has to put into arriving at the answer, I promise there will always be a solution - which may arrive with a bit of a sting in its tail.
She’s sensible, honest, discreet, dogged, always fashionable and has lashes of common sense. She has exemplary powers of deduction, can be feisty when she has to be, and has the ability to peer through the extraneous and misleading in the search for the truth. But most of all she sees the good in people (except when there isn’t any), wants to help and mostly succeeds!
