” It was like the novella version of Cluedo…”
~ Under the Covers

Detective D.D. Warren has to tackle one of her strangest cases in this novella. When a man comes into the station claiming he is dead, she tries to convince him otherwise but ultimately sends him home very much alive. However, a few hours later Detective Warren is called to a homicide and discovers that this time the gentleman is very much dead.

This was a great novella, it was a closed house mystery, where either the wife, the doctor or one of the servants could have been the murderer. It was like the novella version of Cluedo…was it the wife in the bedroom with the dagger…or perhaps the driver? The cook? The maid? The doctor? Detective Warren and her team has to ferret out the inhabitants secrets and find out who killed the victim.

It was a great story, I really enjoyed this quick mystery. It keeps you guessing all the way to the final reveal, where as tradition dictates, the detective gathers everyone in the parlour and reveals the truth!spacer
