Mrs. Jeffries & the Feast of St. Stephen

Sunday, February 24, 2008
Emily Brightwell

You would never expect the fabulous Inspector Gerald Witherspoon of Scotland Yard to be such a small, gentle and shy man. His greatest asset is . . . Mrs. Jeffries, his housekeeper, and his household staff, although he doesn’t know it. Mrs. Jeffries and the staff search for clues and Mrs. Jeffries oh so carefully nudges Inspector Witherspoon to find the killer. But can they solve this one? No one has a motive and everyone has the means.

Entombed

Sunday, February 24, 2008
Linda Fairstein

This is not just a good mystery featuring New York City sex crimes prosecutor Alexandra Cooper. It is also a good story that features much trivia about Edgar Allan Poe. Alexandra Cooper investigates two crimes, a rape and a murder, which at first appear to be related. Complications arise from the discovery of a corpse found entombed in the walls of a home connected to Edgar Allan Poe. The search leads to a mysterious club of Poe scholars, the Bronx Botanical Gardens, the United Nations, and some chilling near-death experiences. An exciting adventure all the way through.

The Blight Way: a Sheriff Bo Tully Mystery

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

I found this mystery through the Library's Online Book Club. I read the first 3 chapters in my email and had to finish it. Chocked full of odd and quirky characters, this entertaining mystery is great fun. When murder comes to Blight County Idaho, Sheriff Bo Tully is overrun with suspects. The Blight Way has everything you would expect from Patrick McManus, outdoor writer and humorist.
