Sheila Malory has her suspicions when her old friend Leonora dies suddenly from drinking contaminated water. Leonora's death benefits too many people at just the right time. Even Sheila benefits, if you can call it that, when she inherits all of Leonora's books and papers. Who has time for that when she has her own 'big event' to prepare for? But Leonora's death seems too convenient and Sheila Malory can't help but investigate. Sheila Malory's adventures are always fun to read. Death by Water has a few flaws--clues turn up when conveniently needed and the ending didn't satisfy me--but you can't help but like Mrs. Malory.
