    Prostitution has been legal in Rhode Island for more than a decade; Liam Mulligan, an old-school investigative reporter at dying Providence newspaper, suspects the governor has been taking payoffs to keep it that way. But this isn’t the only story making headlines… a child’s severed arm is discovered in a pile of garbage at a pig farm. Then the body of an internet pornographer is found sprawled on the rocks at the base of Newport’s famous Cliff Walk.

    Richard Delman says: "DeSilva and Workman are addicting."
    "second as good as the first (Rogue Island)"

    French's department store was famous for the rare merchandise it offered its elite clientele. But no one there could be proud of its latest exclusive window display: the bloodstained corpse of the owner's wife. Ellery Queen and his father, Inspector Richard Queen, soon discover that this palace of commerce is a viper's nest of fear, jealousy, suspicion, and hatred, where love is cheap and the price of honor marked down. But worst of all is the mysterious mocking mastermind who is out to turn the glittering store into a bargain basement of murder.

    Kathi says: "Mystery from the era of the classics"

    Story
    Would you listen to The French Powder Mystery again? Why?

    I first read these books 60+ years ago so this has been an indulgence in nostalgia.
    While much seems dated, after ninety years the basic plot is still timely. So much
    for the war on drugs.


    What does Robert Fass bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I was concerned about listening to the book and were it available would have preferred
    to read it again. The narrator does a good reading but sounds too old for Ellery.

  • Canapes for the Kitties

    Story
    (13)

    The outcry when Conan Doyle pushed Sherlock Holmes over the Reichenbach Falls and the dismay when Freeling shot Van der Valk are as nothing compared to the chaos that ensues when Lorinda Lucas tries to dispose of Miss Petunia and her siblings, Lily and Marigold. Not only does the lid blow off the fictional village of St. Waldemar Boniface, but the literary colony of Brimful Coffers is shaken to its foundations.

    Pam says: "Wonderful!"
    "Clever and entertaining"
    Overall

    As a long time Marian Babson fan I have never been disappointed. She has written not
    only her own characters but whole chapters of books which they (mystery writers)
    are writing. It is disappointing that so few of her books are in audio.
