The Gentle Art of Murder, the latest Jeanne Dams mystery novel
Jeanne Dams has added another classic mystery novel to her Dorothy Martin series. The Gentle Art of Murder features Dorothy and her husband Alan, a retired detective (certain to come in handy later). When a faculty member turns up poisoned and stabbed at the bottom of an elevator shaft, Dorothy and Alan must work together to solve the strange crime. Despite a lack of evidence, Dorothy is determined to sniff out the killer before he strikes again.
Publishers Weekly gives The Gentle Art of Murder a stellar review, noting "fans of warm and fuzzy traditional English mysteries will be satisfied."
Jo Ann Hakola, better known as the Book Faerie, has nothing but praise for Dams' latest novel. She especially enjoys Dorothy's character because "nobody gets away with murder on her watch." To read the full review, check out Jo Ann's blog.
