  1. I have been looking forward to reading this for weeks, and finally got round to it this weekend. Bottom line; I loved this book. The only down side is that it goes too quickly and was impossible to put down, keeping me awake until 1 and 2 in the morning because I just had to read another chapter. It is a crime book; there are a few murders; you would expect that from the title. But it is more than that in as much as it is set in a retirement complex and the characters living in that retirement village are beautifully written with all the old eccentricities you would expect of the elderly, but also with hidden pasts and expertise that lift them off the page. Other characters are written with the same light hand that does not diminish their acts or duties, but moves the story along at an amazing pace.. There are many twists and turns that leave the reader both laughing, amazed, distraught, frustrated and bewildered, right to the end. It is a book of delights. I laughed out loud often and was sorry when the book came to an end. True escapism. Can't wait for book 2.
