For any of you avid fans of the ‘Agatha Raisin’ series of stories, by author M.C. Beaton, you will know of the feelings of extreme loss, when the latest book in the series has been purchased and read, and the withdrawal symptoms kick in waiting for the next release.
Well, perhaps this author can more than adaquately fill that void, and give an alternative source of material, to anyone who enjoys; a complex plot with loads of twists and turns, believable yet frequently exaggerated amusing characters, a light fun read and, perhaps most importantly a light sprinkling of dead bodies.
“Murder Imperfect” is the latest title by Lesley Cookman
The seventh title in the Libby Sarjeant series finds her distracted from involvement with her local pantomime by her friend Harry, who asks her to help a friend of his who has been receiving threatening letters.
At first she believes it to be a simple case of prejudice, but soon Libby uncovers links to particularly nasty crimes in the past, revelations that have catastrophic results.
