9780727869906: Miss Minchin Dies (Sukey Reynolds Mysteries)

A Sukey Reynolds mystery - Adelaide Minchin is found dead in her bathroom. The verdict is accidental death, which her GP has challenged. Sukey agrees to make some enquiries, but the case has to take a back seat when the body of a teenage girl is found. As the two inquiries proceed, Sukey begins to suspect a link between the deaths. With help from local investigative journalist Harry Matthews she starts to rattle a few cages, with near fatal results.

Review:

When a local physician questions the seemingly accidental death of Miss Minchin, one of his patients, Detective Constable Sukey Reynolds is instructed to interview the man and see if there is any cause to suspect foul play. Turns out the physician's story is very shaky, and Sukey is torn about whether to initiate a murder investigation. But then something happens that distracts her from that potential dead-end case. The body of a young girl is found, whose death echoes that of another girl two decades earlier. And when it begins to look like Miss Minchin's death might have something to do with the girls' deaths, Sukey's dead-end case turns into something almost too big to handle. The latest Sukey Reynolds mystery is, like its predecessors, a well-constructed procedural. Fans of the series should consider it a must-read; in fact, so should all fans of mainstream British procedurals. --Booklist, March 1, 2011
