The Skeleton in the Closet by M C Beaton

This seems to be a stand-alone novel by the author of the Agatha Raisin series. The hero, a bit of a social misfit through the fault of his parents, finds himself with money and a mystery to solve. The writing is of M C Beaton's usual standard and her main characters are attractive but after feisty Agatha any other characters will be a bit of a let-down. To paraphrase Dr Johnson rather drastically, this book is worth reading, but not worth going to buy!

Day 119; Book 117
