A Simple Death (Marlo Shaw Mysteries) ebook
by Carolyn Morwood
A Simple Death, the third crime novel by Melburnian Carolyn Morwood, kicks off with a corpse by page two. Marlo and her friend and colleague Harold are walking through a Melbourne park when they find the body of a man Harold knows. Many of the elements of a good murder mystery are present: an inquisitive protagonist, a snappy pace, puzzles to solve, and a cast of distinctive characters. The writing is fluent and easy to read but lacks suspense, and sags with numerous references to Marlo's previous experiences with murder in her family.

Arthur & George recounts the investigative campaign of Arthur Conan Doyle. We saw in New Year in the Lake District with friends. There were four ten-year-olds in the party, all mad for detective fiction. The most obsessive, a soon-to-be 11-year-old, introduced the others to the TV series Death In Paradise.
