Cozy ReadingI'm back to cozy reading, after a long hiatus, and after finding a delightful mystery involving cupcakes and death!
|Dying for Devil's Food|
As for rural Texas,
|The Gillespie County Fair|
In historical mysteries,
|Murder on Trinity Place|
New from the library,
|The Court Dancer|
Newcomer by Keigo Higashino, published November 2018 by Minotaur Books, is a detailed police procedural set outside Tokyo.
Detective Kaga gets involved in the lives of the people he is investigating while linking clues in a case just as someone would braid a rope out of single threads. We get to know several shop owners in a traditional shopping district, their lives and their crafts and goods, all during Kaga's investigation into a recent death. Any of the threads he picks up along the way could lead to the murderer of a divorced woman living in the area, and a few do. The ending is not predictable, nor is the unique personality and methods of the detective. I gave this library book five stars.
