Publisher's Summary

Dorothy Martin and her husband, Alan Nesbitt, recently retired from Scotland Yard, get word that she has received a small inheritance. But she must travel from her home in England to her native Indiana to claim it. The deceased has also left a letter suggesting that he's been murdered. At first, that seems absurd. He was 96-years-old and died of pneumonia. Upon further investigation, however, the two sleuths find several suspects with the means, motives, and opportunities to abet Mother Nature. There's the crazy next-door neighbor, the preacher whose finances have risen while those of his parishioners have fallen, and the impoverished niece who expected to be named in the will and wasn't. Finding suspects is easy. Finding the murderer isn't.

An Entertaining Cozy

This is an entertaining, well written "cozy" mystery.

Dorothy Martin is a retired American teacher who emigrated to England. Her husband, Alan Nesbitt, is a retired Scotland Yard police officer. I enjoy their relationship. It's an interesting and well balanced combination. Both are very intelligent. When trying to solve a mystery, Dorothy can be a little over enthusiastic. Alan's years of investigating crime helps to keep them "on task".

This book was published in 2000. Computers and cell phones were not prevalent. Even though I love my computer, it's refreshing to read a story where there is less reliance on technology. There is no graphic violence, sex or crude language. This is a relaxing book, great for listening as I fell asleep.
