Miss Abigail Potter, a successful mystery author and a darling little ole sleuth, is the heroine of this refreshingly written tale of murder by knife, poison and pistol. Her first venture out of the realm of fictitious death is begun in 1945 when a young soldier on a train describes to her a plan for murder—a plan he’s obviously intending to use for more than a conversational gambit. When she reads of a suspicious death in the boy’s home town a few years later, she packs her bags and dashes down to solve her first real killing, filled with a synthetic confidence soon destined for a fall. Abigail’s white hair and well-worn features hide an astonishing vitality and a gift for sleuthing unmatched since Watson was first saved from a misleading clue by Holmes. She’ll win your heart completely as she courageously and sometimes blunderingly progresses toward her solution of a murder which baffles the police and defies the detecting ability of any reader.
