Rack, Ruin and Murder by Ann Granger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this second entry into this series. Monty Bickerstaffe is the owner of Balaclava House, which has gone to the rack and ruin of the title. He's almost 80, almost crippled with arthritis, and he lives happily alone in his decrepit home until one day, he discovers a body sitting on the sofa in his living room. Not only does he not know who the corpse is, but he also has no idea that a bedroom on the second floor of his home has been used regularly. Jess Campbell investigates the suspicious death, aided by Ian Carter, her superintendent. This was a cozy read, with likable characters and a bit of a twist at the end.
