Ex-patriot American Dorothy Martin, now married to a retired high-level English policeman, is nearing 70, but don't let that fool you. Her curiosity and ability to piece together bricks with very little straw remain ever young. "Sins Out of School" begins with a day of substitute teaching for a teacher who simply failed to show up and ends with bringing down a politician widely believed to be the next Prime Minishter.

The story begins with a Thanksgiving Celebration in the heart of a British Cathedral town. Dorothy Martin, American Chatterbox with arthritic knees and the new wife of former Chief Constable Alan Nesbit, is begged to fill in for a teacher during a flu epidemic. While doing an admirable job as a substitute teacher, she becomes aware of bit of oddness and suddenly finds herself in the midst of a very unusual murder case. Jeanne Dams does an EXCELLENT sense of setting in her cozy mysteries, and the detective work is plausible. The Dorothy Martin character with her wacky hats and nosy questions does get on my nerves just a bit, but I like her anyway. The religious angle to the book was well set out and quite interesting and the characters were ones the reader could care about.

I am a Jeanne Dams fan, especially the Dorothy Martin series, and this book was no exception. Walking along with Dorothy thru her fictional English town and solving the murder, in this case, of a school teachers husband, exposes the reader to the charm of an English cozy in the style of Christie.
