Title: Death Takes A Trip
Author: Gillian Larkin
Stars: 4 out of 5
A nice little murder mystery set in England (can murder ever be nice) that can easily be read in an afternoon. The murder is not gruesome so your sensibility will not be offended. The main character (Julia Blake) has her own cleaning company and solves crimes in her free time. Julia is an engaging and hard working individual whom you would be hard pressed to not like. I had fingered the guilty party before they were revealed in the story. Would you be able to do the same?
My only complaint about the story was it did not give a region or general area of the country where the story was taking place. This is a minor flaw to a well written story but having lived in the England for over 20 years I would like to have known. It does not detract in the slightest from the story.
I would give the book a four star rating. I would read other offerings by this author.
I obtained this book from Amazon in the Kindle format.
Thanks Frank for this review.
Julia Blake runs her own cleaning business. She has the unfortunate knack of getting herself involved in murder investigations.
When one of Julia's elderly clients, Douglas Pedley, is found dead at the bottom of his stairs, it is soon obvious that he was murdered.
Julia first suspects the building contractors who have been hounding Douglas to sell his land and property. It's not long before another suspect appears.
Julia is determined to find out who murdered the old man.
