The Fine Art of Murder: A Katherine Sullivan Mystery (Katherine Sullivan Mysteries)
Katherine Sullivan is a busy grandmother. She’s come home to Edina, Minnesota to help her recently divorced daughter and see her grandchildren. As she was once the town’s Chief of Police, it doesn’t take Katherine long before she and her former partner, Nathan are involved in a murder investigation.
Buckhorn, the town’s local estate, is set to revert to the state of Minnesota, according to the will left by it’s previous owner. But with rumors rife that the estate contains hidden art treasures, not all are happy with the handover of the property. So when a body is found dead on the estate, there are several possible suspects. The current Chief of Police, Dean Bostwick is less than thrilled to see Katherine poking her nose into his investigation. This just makes Katherine more determined than ever to solve the case first.
Engaging and well written, this cozy mystery includes an interesting cast of characters, witty dialogue, and an interesting plot. The details of Katherine’s day to day activities give the reader an immediate and intimate connection to her family and her investigation. There is enough tension and development within the story to make this book are to put down.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
