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

Maybe take my grandchild to see the fantasy of time travel into the world of folklore.

Once again, Kiuftinger must use his powers of deduction and intuitive sense to deal with crime . This time, however, Klufti must put the pieces together before the crime even happens. His personal persona of the bumbling husband and the pampered only son, add to the intrigue that he, as the Kommissar, is as astute and respected in his profession. His inner thoughts lend an
amusing aspect to his character as he spars with his nemesis, Dr. Langhammer. The added comedy between the two make each listen a joy! Onward to the next adventure!

While the dialect was sometimes difficult to understand, the narration added interesting personality development into each character. Murder in a castle with a mysterious family background is only the beginning. The plot encompasses the professional and personal life of Kluftinger, his Japanese in- laws -to -be staying as house guests the week before the wedding of his son to their daughter, Yumiko, and his exceptionally keen police work. Klufty and Yumiko's father lend humorous context to the story as the language barrier created hilarious predicaments. This story was thoroughly enjoyable, and sometimes required a second or third listen for sheer pleasure of reliving the visual imaging.

The adventures of Mrs. Pollifax follow the tried and true storyline recipe after the initial introduction in the first book.
