One Man’s Meat

One Man's Meat

One Man’s Meat is Gone Girl 60s style!

The ninth Flaxborough mystery was published in 1977 but is set in the “swinging” 60s. Motorcycle gang member Digger Tring falls from a carnival ride 100 feet to his death. Julia Harton’s husband wants a divorce to marry his mistress who is willing to play the waffle game with a tennis racket, butter and her bum. Con man Mr. Rothermer convinces Julia to use the “classic ploy of the vanished wife” to ensure she receives $20,000 in her divorce settlement. Inspector Purbright and Detective Love investigate.

Highly recommended for its dry wit and great mystery. Definitely one of the best in a series that just keeps improving. 4 stars!

Thanks to the publisher, Farrago Books, and NetGalley for an advanced copy.
