Publisher's Summary

Detectives Sloan and Crosby find themselves assigned two rather puzzling cases. First, there's the young woman's body which has been discovered in the River Alm. And then there's the mysterious break-in at the Berebury Nursing Home. To be precise, it's Josephine Short's room at the nursing home that's been entered, although nothing seems to be missing. What could the intruder have been after? It becomes apparent to Sloan and Crosby that the two cases are connected--but who can the killer be?

A modern classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, for anyone who enjoys old style classic formula

What about Ric Jerrom’s performance did you like?

He is the third reader, perhaps I would have liked him more had he done the entire series, but I miss the first and second.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The stories are short so one listening in a day was almost a given?.

Any additional comments?

In these troubled times, it is nice to escape into a series that is not political, with language children could listen to, and romance mildly suggested, but not important. I listened to all the audible books, many have not yet been made available. Aird keeps her characters at the same age, not unlike the old Dagwwod comic, but easily mentions new technology as online and email without missing a beat. The mysteries are easy to solve but a pleasant read anyway.
