Judith is elderly and very happy with her life and the way it is going. When her neighbour Stefan is murdered and when the local police seem to
dismiss her as a cranky old lady, she decides to join up with two other ladies Suzie and the very prim Becks, the vicar's wife to embark on a
bit of detection and try to sort out who murdered whom.
When a second murder occurs, they step up their action - in a head on, amateur attempt but which is strangely successful and keeps them out of
harms way though they come perilously close on several occasions of endangering themselves. They do not follow protocol or procedure and ignore
the local police force but come up trumps with clues and suspects - much more than the local police.
The setting itself was picturesque - how these murders take place in serene, quiet and such pretty locales is something to ponder!
A well rounded mystery detective story.

I love books that feature older protagonists these days. This sounds good and love that the setting seems well detailed.ReplyDelete
