Recensioner

The first clue came with a corpse. The body lay next to a gravestone in the Bakerhaven Cemetery. Police Chief Dale Harper stood in the pouring rain and looked down at it with displeasure. What was a corpse doing in the cemetery? Chief Harper was not unaware of the humor in the question. A body in the cemetery - the press would have a field day. Chief Harper frowned and wiped the water off his face.

I love puzzles and I love books so a book about puzzles was always going to be a winner. I loved it. Still it wasn't without it's issues and I'm sure not everyone will enjoy it.

Cora was hilarious. She's such a nutter. I loved the whole cast of characters, Cora, Chief Dale Harper, Sherry and Aaron. The dialogue was fast and snappy with lots of word play. The murder itself wasn't terribly original - it was pretty obvious who the murderer was from the start but I did enjoy getting there. And there were a lot of laughs along the way. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4.… (mer)

I Love Stuart Woods and I enjoy the Teddy Fay series. It's nice not having all the sex going on like in the Stone Barrington books! Looking forward to more antics with Teddy.
