Killing Cassidy

Killing Cassidy: A Dorothy Martin Mystery (Dorothy Martin Mysteries) Killing Cassidy: A Dorothy Martin Mystery by Jeanne M. Dams

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jeanne Dams books are always good. She has good characters and the plot is always interesting. None of them take too long to read and there isn't usually much gore either.

This book takes place in the town she grew up in and involves people that she and her first husband knew at the college where he was a professor. Dorothy and her British Inspector husband have come to Indiana when she receives a letter from the estate of an old friend from the college. He was a professor and microbiologist in his 90's and he felt that someone was trying to kill him. He left Dorothy a legacy and the money for a trip back to the US to investigate his death.

Dorothy and her husband are convinced that someone did manage to kill him and they try to investigate but they are hampered by not being able to tell anyone what they are doing. The list of suspects contains several old colleagues, former students and friends and until they eliminate them as suspects they can't let anyone know about the letter. Eventually, all of the subplots are nicely resolved and the culprit comes to a watery end.
