Death Comes to Marlow

Death Comes to Marlow

In Death Comes to Marlow, Judith is a free spirited 78-year-old, who creates crossword puzzles. She and her two younger besties, Suzie and Becks, also like solving mysteries. When rich Sir Peter calls Judith to invite her to his engagement party despite not knowing her, she feels compelled to attend. Despite commenting “No one’s frightened for their life here”, Sir Peter quickly turns up dead in a locked study. He is killed by an unusual murder weapon, a large mahogany cabinet. Can Judith solve the crime?

The book revels in its golden age old fashioned whodunnit style. Can you, as the reader, solve the perplexing and seemingly impossible crime before Judith? The clues are all there along with a several red herrings and dead-end theories.

I love reading these types of mysteries! So, of course, I love Death Comes to Marlow. It is the perfect challenge for armchair detectives. The characters are also fun to be around with Judith modernizing Miss Marple.

Overall, the book is a fun read, perfect for fans of fair play mysteries. 5 stars!

Thanks to Poisoned Pen Press and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
