Another tricky case for Inspector Sloan
Gertrude Powell's death seemed outwardly natural but when her son reveals a letter in which she maintains someone was trying to kill her, D.I. Sloan's investigations unearth some mysterious facts that lead to another murder case.

In this book Crosby's dubious driving skills are needed to help Sloan stop a funeral so that a post mortem can be carried out on the corpse who believed someone would murder her. The book is mainly set in a retirement home allowing the author free rein with the eccentric characters. The writing is as ever amusing with plenty of irony and little asides from Sloan about what he would have liked to say in the circumstances presented to him.
If you enjoy cosy crime novels then try Catherine Aird. The series can be read in any order.
