Burton St Clair, a successful author, is killed after a reading at a local library and Jude and Carol end up investigating this murder. I gather that this is the 18th book in this series of cosy crime thrillers but the first for me. The characters are reasonably well-developed although perhaps a bit cliched at times but the plot is quite original and moves along at a good pace. I read it in two days and, although this is not my favourite genre, it was OK but nothing special. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
