Psycho by the Sea

Psycho by the Sea

Constable Twitten and charwoman/criminal mastermind Mrs. Groynes are both trying to determine what is causing the multitude of recent murders in their sleepy southern English town in Psycho by the Sea.

When Mrs. G was running things, messy murder victims weren’t filling the morgue. But now one of her chief lieutenants is missing, her latest scheme has been uncovered, and a new ultra-efficient secretary has forced her to quit her charwoman job at the police station. Someone has it out for her—but who?

I love the deceptively slow backwater mysteries in this series. While the 1950s setting is excellent, the mystery in this book, is especially convoluted. I also adore the characters and their gently comical interactions. If you are looking for a humorously bumbling police procedural, look no further than Psycho by the Sea. 4 stars!

Thanks to Raven Books, Bloomsbury USA, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
