This delightful first novel features a lovable quartet of amateur sleuths whose loyalty, feistiness, and perseverance flush out a serial killer. Fifty-eight-year-old Mildred Bennett, estranged from an unfeeling husband, returns to Raven's Wing, Connecticut to close up her dead mother's house. She meets an old acquaintance (and former police chief) the morning after a rape/murder. He enlists the aid of Mildred and two long-time friends to begin a "private" investigation. There are frequent touches of provincial values and unpretentious humor as their search exposes more and more secrets. Unsophisticated perhaps, but most entertaining.
