Publisher's Summary

This charming series of Victorian murder mysteries features mild-mannered Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard and, more importantly, Mrs Jeffries, his housekeeper. A policeman's widow herself, her quick wits allow her to nudge the Inspector in the right direction to solve the crime.
When a doctor is discovered dead in his own office, Mrs Jeffries is on the look-out for a prescription for murder, determined to discover the culprit, despite how her employer feels about interviewing suspects...
He hated questioning people. He could never tell whether or not someone was actually lying to him, and he knew, shocking as it was, that there were some people who lied to the police on a regular basis.

Irritating Cliches

Any additional comments?

I couldn't get into this at all. The detective is a well intentioned idiot who's servants are grateful to him for keeping them employed. His housekeeper is a detecting genius and prompts him. It was all very cliched. I admit I only got about 1/3 of the way through so it may all get much better after that but I was kicking myself for having wasted a credit on this.

Great Cozy Mystery

Loved it. Great characters & intetesting mystery. The background sleuths make it more intetesting as they help out their naive good employer who also happens to be a reluctant detective with Scotland Yard.
