England'd favorite tax inspector investigates a homicide

While waiting at the police station for Detective Inspector David Nicholls to take her to dinner, English tax inspector Leah Hunter is shocked when an old schoolmate, the ultra timid Jeannie Johnson is brought into the precinct, fighting every inch of the way. Soon after the altercation in the police station, Jeannie mysteriously disappears. Jeannie's mother, fearful of turning to the police, pleads with Leah to help her daughter. However, the older Johnson dies in a hit and run accident before her arranged meeting with Leah. Subsequently, the younger Johnson's body is found floating in a nearby canal. ...... Leah continues to investigate the two deaths. Threatening phone calls start to haunt the intrepid tax inspector. She quickly resolves the case, but is unhappy with the findings because they seem too obvious, especially in light of the two killings and the phone calls. She decides to follow the money trail to see where that leads. If she does not quit or identify the murderers quickly, Leah may find herself being the third victim. ...... Leah Hunter, in her fourth novel, continues to be an intriguing amateur sleuth due to her sense of humor and English wit. Though David seems a bit weak as a professional detective, FILE UNDER: JEOPARDY is winning Final Jeopardy because it is a fast-paced story line with numerous vile villains, plenty of action, and the astounding lead protagonist, who makes the novel worth reading. ......Harriet Klausner
