Paperback. Purchased recently at the Park Forest Library sale.

Picturesque Nettleton was a typical English country village--with Nosy Parkers peeking through every curtained window and secrets behind every cottage door. Now Nettleton had a murder. But why would anyone wish to kill mousy spinster Carrie Birch, a woman who cleaned other people's houses by day and cared for her nasty invalid mother by night?


Journal Entry 2 by trekwoman from Santa Ana, California USA on Wednesday, October 11, 2006
I put aside reviewing my History notes in order to keep reading this novel.

On one hand, I truly like the author's style of writing. Inspector Thanet is likeable enough but doesn't have quite enough personality to render him a truly great detective character, such as Inspector Pitt (Anne Perry) or even Hamish MacBeth (M.C. Beaton).

This book in particular drove me bats due to the "familiar face" ploy in wrapping up the murder. I don't like it when someone unknown to the reader conveniently turns up and helps the police pull all the bits together. I'd somewhat guessed the killer's identity but not the reason why.

May read more of Mrs. Simpson's work in future- provided she doesn't hold back characters in other tales.

Thanks so much for these books, Trekwoman. I used to read a lot of mysteries when I was younger, but not so much anymore. I think I'm going to give these a try.

Enjoyable mystery. Many suspects, many motives.

I think this is the first mystery that I've read by Dorothy Simpson. Will keep an eye open for more in this series. Thanks for sharing, Trekwoman! This will be released soon at a book festival.

Journal Entry 9 by claudineusa at Kensington, Maryland USA on Tuesday, May 24, 2011
OK--starts slow. Personal life of detective a bit outdated --he's not happy that his wife is going back to work, although he agreed to it--but maybe not outdated enough! Not one I'd carry with me to finish or stay up in bed to read.
