Murder at Spoleto based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Cutting edge science is used to sort out the deaths of stars on stage at the annual spring arts Spoleto festival. Medically exact this mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat reading all night while you laugh yourself hoarse. The wry humor is typical of medical folks who deal with tragedy, but wrapped around local history and personalities it is too clever to put down. Congratulations. Now go get Georgetown.
This husband and wife team know medicine, Charleston, and how to write a mystery that is as much fun as it is murder. Very timely, it involves bioterrorism and detailed medical science as one after another star falls dead center stage. It neatly refers back to the history of this colonial village and incorporates many typical Charleston people, pursuits, restaurants, and locales. If you want something to amuse and challenge you--buy it.
With laughs and suspense on every page you can't tell whether this is a comedy about murder or a mystery with wry humor. In either case it nails Charleston history, characters, peculiarities, and cuisine perfectly as only insiders could do. It can serve as a history of the town from pirates to today or as a guide to its superb restaurants or an introduction to the annual spring arts festival-- Spoleto. The style is between Tom Clancy for the details of the hunt for the culprits and Robin Cook for the combination of murder and medicine. Congratulations to this married couple from Charleston for a brilliant funny mystery.
