P.I. Rosco Polycrates and crossword editor Belle Graham take their puzzle sleuthing skills to a sleepy New England town that's waking up to some nasty surprises.
Folks in Taneysville, Massachusetts are in an uproar. A builder wants to develope fifteen acres of land - and they're sure it will be the ruin of the quaint and quiet lifestyle they hold dear. Then the determined developer is stopped cold in his tracks not by a demonstration, but by a grisly discovery. The skeletal remains of a young woman have been unearthed by the construction crew. Belle and Rosco are fast on the case. It's not long before anonymous crosswords start pouring in- but even with a plethora of clues, Belle and Rosco are finding that in this old fashioned hamlet, not everything is black and white.
I loved this one.. I'll try to get the rest in the series..Simple and fun...with a touch of the pedantic. :)
This book combines two of my favorite things - mysteries and crossword puzzles! The story is one that will keep you interested and the puzzles, right there in the book will tempt you to try and solve every one of them! LOL
I didn't though - hope another puzzle fan enjoys this book.
As always, a fun read with challenging puzzles and a surprise ending.
