Cozy Mystery: The Case of The Hated Body (The Sleepless Detective Murder Mystery Series) by Carrie Marsh

Screams without explanation. A dead boarder. An investigator knows something is off about the case…

When beautiful and mysterious Rebecca is found murdered in her extended-stay suite, the Rockport police are baffled by the apparent senseless brutality of the crime. The only clue to what happened to the young woman appears to be the way she died—a blow to the back of her head, with a baseball bat or golf club.

Detective Inspector Richard Watson must now follow a confusing trail of clues that seem to lead in every direction, even when exhaustion sets in and his mind plays tricks on him. Like the great Sherlock Holmes, he must entice the clues out of thin air!

What the detective and his assistant find is shocking, but the most shocking thing of all is what happens when a detective finally puts together the unlikeliest of clues. Only his long-suffering assistant can help him now.

What happened to Rebecca Jones—was she a victim of an abusive ex-husband or was something more sinister the cause for her death?

Can the detective find a way to put together the seemingly senseless clues in time to solve the case once and for all?

The Case of the Hated Body is a spine-tingling race through multiple suspects, each with a motive for killing the young woman. As each is cleared, join the detective as he searches for the truth of what happened that dreadful night…but don’t read it alone in the dark!

This is a standalone cozy mystery novella.

My ten year old could write a better whodunnit. This is a waste of time. I'm surprised the author found a publisher. Drivel.

This is only the second book I've read from this author and the first in this particular series. The writing is better than it was in the other book but still needs a little work. The pros: It's a quick read, free of violence and sex. The cons: The characters aren't developed very well. The ending was abrupt. One minute they're discussing something and the next they're arresting someone that wasn't even considered a suspect. Conclusion: I'll probably read another one in the series to see if the writing, character and plot development get better.

The Case of the Hated Body by Carrie Marsh is a wonderful mystery, with an intriguing twist in the end. I had no idea who the killer was until the end!!

It seems whatever you have done in your life at some point catches up with you….eventually. Life is sometime out of control and desperation takes over. A small town that is normally so quiet wakes up in the wake of a murder. The suspects many, the motives….not much. This was my second book by this author to read, but it will not be my last. Storyline flow was fluid and characters will be even more developed as this series continues.
