Overview

Clara Gamadge's latest adventure finds the white-haired sleuth in the hospital, at Christmas of all times, a victim of a bad hors d'oeuvre consumed at the opening of a friend's new mystery book shop, Pushing Murder, in Greenwich Village. A poisoning attempt at the hospital, however, convinces Clara and her family that the mishap at the party was no accident, but attempted murder! Who could possibly want to kill Clara, and why? She hasn't been involved in any cases for quite some time, so the murder attempts must mean she's been drawn into a new case without her knowledge. She suspects that someone will need her services in the near future. Sure enough, an old friend suddenly appears on the scene seeking Clara's help, and a web of ancient deceptions and greed ensnares both women, involving them in a deadly game of extortion and murder. As Clara's family, including her charming yet irascible cousin Sadd, rallies to protect both women, Clara directs the investigation from her hospital bed. To her sorrow, however, she finds that the spirit of Christmas is proof against only the chill and is not strong enough to protect them all from the malice of one ambitious man.

The fourth cozy caper featuring senior citizen sleuth Clara Gamadge. A week before Christmas, there's more than just mice stirring. A killer tries to poison Clara, and plunges her into a deadly hunt to unmask the sinister Scrooge. "A fast, snappy mystery."--Mostly Murder.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The fourth appearance of New York City amateur sleuth Clara Gamadge finds the white-haired widow trying to trap her own would-be murderer. Clara is hospitalized after eating poisoned hors d'ouevres at the opening of her friend Sal's new mystery bookstore. Very soon, Clara and readers learn whodunit; the point of the tale is to prove the perp's guilt before he succeeds in murdering Clara and possibly Sal, who is his new wife. While still confined, Clara survives another poisoning attempt, but a third friend, also aware of the poisoner's intentions and his shady past, is strangled in the hospital chapel. Clara, her loyal cousin and friend Charles Saddlier, her grown children and a private detective all work together to foil a murderer whose access to the hospital frightens everyone. The fiesty Clara is more sharply etched than the other characters and the plot exhibits some gaps and slow patches, but Boylan ( Murder Machree ) nevertheless tailors a diverting and sprightly old-fashioned cozy in modern dress.
