For Mr. and Mrs. North, there’s no vacation from murder
In a remote cabin far from New York City, Jerry and Pamela North are getting killed. On the brink of annihilation, they grit their teeth and battle back. In a minute, the fight is finished—and the Norths are named mixed doubles champions. It’s a happy moment during a splendid vacation, but off the tennis court, all is not well. Following an afternoon of fun and games, the evening’s entertainment will be murder.
Mr. and Mrs. North have invited their closest friends—an ex-aviator, a mysterious doctor, and NYPD’s own Lt. William Weigand—to join them on this glittering retreat, but the joviality ends when Weigand finds Helen Wilson lying across the path, a knife buried in her neck. A member of the group surely killed her, and unless the Norths act quickly, the murderer will strike again.
Written during the forties, the book could easily appear dated. But this mystery is as fresh as if written during the twenty-first century.
Multiple Murders- Multiple Suspects
Not being a tennis buff had me a little behind at first and meeting the many personalities in the lakeside cabins seemed a bit overwhelming right out of the gate early on but— any whodunnit nut will be in heaven with the evolving intrigue of innumerable suspects with differing motives.
Hard to put down til the elusive solution becomes clear.
