The Outsmarting of Criminals
Book #46 Read in 2014
The Outsmarting of Criminals by Steven Rigolosi
This was a great, cozy read. Miss Prim leaves New York City after she is mugged and moves to a lovely little town in CT. She decides to begin a new career as a sort of investigator....her goal is to outsmart criminals. The sleepy little town immediately becomes more interesting when Miss Prim finds a dead body in her hidden basement room. She begins an investigation with some help from her boxer Bruno and her neighbor Lorraine. Miss Prim seamlessly becomes an integral part of her small town and meets quite an interesting cast of characters.
I enjoyed the literary references to mystery books and authors. Miss Prim was an interesting main character. The secondary characters were also interesting and I loved the small town setting, which felt like an English village transplanted to CT. Of course, Bruno was a fave of mine as well. I recommend this book to mystery lovers.
