Matthew Scudder investigates the brutal murder of a woman known as the “bag lady.” A seemingly homeless woman, she turns out to have distributed her substantial wealth in a complex will naming random strangers. Where did the money come from? Why was she living in such reduced circumstances? And why in the world did she choose these beneficiaries - the owner of a local newspaper stand, a neighbor she rarely spoke to, the detective himself - when her real friends and acquaintances got nothing at all? And how is all this linked to her murder?

Love the characters but always feel like the endings are rushed.
His voice is very monotone and he speaks to quickly. Needs to slow down and punctuate certain sentences. Also needs to change the pitch of different characters.
No too short
"candle for the bag lady"
An intriguing book, where you cant wait for the list of heirs to her unknown fortune be revealed. it could have been a lot longer, so that we had more answers, but it was enjoyable for all that
"A Pleasant Surprise"
The synopsis looked intriguing and it was a very different approach however I have really enjoyed listening to this and will look for more by author
