    It’s just an ordinary day for octogenarian sleuth Myrtle Clover - until her yardman discovers a dead body planted in her backyard. Myrtle’s friend Miles recognizes the body and identifies him as Charles Clayborne... reluctantly admitting he’s a cousin. As Myrtle starts digging up dirt to nip the killings in the bud, someone’s focused on scaring her off the case. Myrtle vows to find the murderer... before she’s pushing up daisies, herself.

    "Nice story, narration could have been much better"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Spann Craig and/or Cathy Schrecongost?

    I'd try another book by this author but I'd avoid the narrator.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This wasn't an edge of your seat kind of mystery. It was more a pleasant diversion, brain candy.


    What didn’t you like about Cathy Schrecongost’s performance?

    There was very little animation. There were parts of this story that would have been laugh out loud funny with the right inflections in the narration. The performance was slow and deliberate. The reading was very obviously just that, reading. It was slow and methodical, no mispronounced words but no emotion. It was a struggle to finish the book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.
