I have read a few of Elly Griffiths’ novels but need to seek out more as I thoroughly enjoyed this and the others that I have read.
‘The Postscript Murders’ begins with the death of Peggy, a lady in her nineties who we see from the beginning is keen to keep a look out for anything going on. As the novel progresses, we discover she is a ‘murder consultant’. Peggy is found by her carer and, on the surface, it seems to be death by natural causes although her carer, Natalka, does not believe this to be the case.
Natalka informs the police of her suspicions and involves Peggy’s neighbour, Edwin, also in his eighties and Benedict who owns a local coffee shop and the three follow the clues which lead them to Scotland.
DS Harbinder Kaur follows the three to Scotland when another body turns up. Numerous subplots and twists and turns flow as the story progresses. Full of brilliant characters I couldn’t put it down.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Quercus Books and Elly Griffiths for my ARC in return for my honest review.
Great read. Highly recommended.
