Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Well, having finished the brilliant The Mad Hatter Mystery, it's finally time to roll again and the suspense was too much for the Victorian Gaming Commission's feline agent:



She needn't have feared though; it's not close enough to bed time for me to roll doubles, or land on free parking, or any of the other complexities that seem to plague me when I'm just intending to do a 'quick' roll before heading to sleep.  I rolled a simple 6 and landed on 16. Read a book that is a mystery or suspense, or which has a title that contains all of the letters in the word C-A-B-I-N.


Trawling through my TBR shelves, I spotted The Skeleton in the Clock, by Carter Dickson, and since I enjoyed The Mad Hatter Mystery so much, I decided to go with it and see if I like Dickson Carr as much when he writes under his pseudonym.
