Received from PaperBackSwap to read in advance of the Oxford Convention.
When a terrible, awful woman dies by suspicious means, is there any reason not to let sleeping killers lie? Christiane Marchant met her bloody end when a large, heavy euphonium plunged off a balcony and onto her head. Everyone at the Firstone Grange residential home agreed it was a terrible accident. But nobody was going to miss the hateful Mrs. Marchant. Not her beleaguered daughter, not the exasperated staff, nor fellow guests at the home - and especially not those she was blackmailing.
But retired headmistress Harriet Quigley, a new resident at the luxury lodgings, believes in getting to the truth, no matter how terrible. As she begins to ask questions, her sympathetic nature elicits more than a few confessions from the others - all involving shameful secrets and long-buried dark deeds that Christiane had threatened to expose. But who among them was forced to resort to murder?
Excellent read! Despite the hundreds of murder mysteries I've read, I can count on the fingers of one hand the victims as odious as Christiane Marchant. She really evoked strong emotions in me, so I wasn't sorry to see her go. I enjoyed the unusual murder weapon as well. Very imaginative!
I look forward to meeting the author at the Oxford convention!
