Inhaltsangabe: Mystery writer Nancy Bell, author of the highly acclaimed Biggie Weatherford series, introduced a new series with Restored to Death: A Judge Jackson Crain Mystery. The reviewers were delighted. Now Judge Crain is back.
In the second Judge Jackson Crain Mystery, Joe Junior McBride, beloved barber of Post Oak, Texas, has been murdered. At first glance, the homicide appears to be the work of a prowler, but as the investigation progresses, Joe Junior's second wife, Marlene Ashburn, becomes the prime suspect.
A stranger turns up at the funeral, and something about him reminds everyone of Joe Junior. But Joe's brother, Gerald, claims never to have seen him, and mounting evidence points to Marlene as the murderer.
Meanwhile, Judge Crain and his adolescent daughter, Patty, try to combine her social activities as a teenager with some careful snooping into the secret lives of their friends and neighbors. And as they come closer to the solution, Jackson and Patty each find a touch of romance . . . .
Praise for Restored to Death
"Fans of Bell's six cozies about small-town Texan Biggie Weatherford . . . should saunter on down to Post Oak, Texas, and meet Judge Jackson Crain."
- Publishers Weekly
"Quaint characters and locales, frequent humor, and comfy prose commend this to all collections."
- Library Journal
" Restored to Death brings to life the townsfolk (and a few corpses) . . . [of] down home Texas. Jackson is a delightful main character."
- Midwest Book Review
"The thirteen-year-old daughter of this book's protagonist endeared herself on line one, page one . . . . Loved the small-town setting."
-- Mystery News
Praise for Nancy Bell's Biggie Weatherford Series
"A charming series . . . It's the town and its highly idiosyncratic characters that make it all work. Think of Miss Marple's St. Mary Mead, set in Texas, and you'll get the idea."
-- Booklist on Biggie and the Quincy Ghost
"Bell serves up a tangy puzzler and a banquet of saucy characters--who definitely rate a return visit."
-- People magazine on Biggie and the Poisoned Politician
"These delightfully weird characters flavor the novel with East Texas color and humor . . . . This fast read will delight and satisfy."
-- Library Journal on Biggie and the Fricasseed Fat Man
f1 "One remarkably entertaining mystery!"
-- Mystery Review on Biggie and the Mangled Mortician
