The first book I read about Inspector Barnaby was The Killings at Badger's Drift by Caroline Graham. Since writing her series, many of the books have been created for television - Midsomer Murders starring John Nettles as Inspector Barnaby. And subsequent episodes were written with the same theme. If you like murder mysteries set in quaint English villages, this is a great series to both read and watch. (I've watched 82 DVDs so far - all from the local library). You can view the complete episode guide here. These are also available on Acorn TV and are occasionally shown on PBS. Many of the locations have been in Buckinghamshire and they even have Midsomer Murder Mystery Tours.
