A Dismal Thing to Do: Madoc and Janet Rhys, Book 3

Janet Rhys is driving through the backwoods of Canada when she sees the truck ahead of her lose control, smash into a snow bank, and flip sideways, completely blocking the road. Springing to action, she darts into a nearby barn, searching for something to use to rescue the person trapped inside. When she hears an explosion, Janet returns to find the truck is nothing but smoking wreckage, and the driver has stolen her car.

Publisher's Summary

After witnessing a strange explosion, Janet becomes a murderer’s next target. Janet Rhys is driving through the backwoods of Canada when she sees the truck ahead of her lose control, smash into a snow bank, and flip sideways, completely blocking the road. Springing to action, she darts into a nearby barn, searching for something to use to rescue the person trapped inside. When she hears an explosion, Janet returns to find the truck is nothing but smoking wreckage, and the driver has stolen her car.

Janet takes shelter in an abandoned house, and is waiting for help to come when the truck driver’s accomplices set fire to her hideout. Just before she is engulfed in flames, she leaps through a window and escapes into the snow. The killers think their witness is dead, and if Janet doesn’t move quickly, they will be right.

    What made the experience of listening to A Dismal Thing to Do the most enjoyable?

    The vivid characters that Charlotte MacLeaod creates make it feel like you are sharing stories over a good meal or drink. They never fail to get me lost in their world for a few hours - enjoying every moment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best would most definitely be a huge spoiler. Let me just say that the details about the mystery at the heart of the story is pretty unique and the villain(s) were not who you'd expect. This story was not one that cozy-haters can point to as an example of figuring out the solution in Chapter 2.


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

    Willam Dufris reading of this book seemed to effortlessly portray the different characters without creating any caricatures.


    Any additional comments?

    This book continues to reinforce my appreciation for the Charlotte MacLeod books. I've read/listened-to all the Peter Shandy books and am working through the Madoc & Janet Rhys books.
