    To Perish in Penzance by Jeanne M. Dams.

    This adventure takes Dorothy and husband Alan on a holiday turned murder case in Penzance. Alan has had an unsolved murder case n the back of his mind for years. thirty years to be exact. That case had taken place in Penzance among the many caves.
    Upon entering Penzance they came into contact with other people on holiday. Among those people were an elderly woman and her daughter. Strange observations about that pair stood out in Dorothy's mind.

    Shortly thereafter a victim is discovered in the same vicinity as the murder victim of thirty years prior. Are they related in anyway?
    Now both Alan and Dorothy were on this new case with motivation at the forefront.

    Another excellent adventure with hidden secrets throughout. Highly recommended for lovers of cozies and this series.

    This is the second of the Dorothy Martin series I have read (see #130.) This one has Dorothy (American) and her English husband, Alan visiting Alan’s home area of Cornwall. Before retiring, Alan was chief constable for a county in southeast England. His home area still remembered him as a policeman from the area who rose to a high position in law enforcement. While on the force in Cornwall, Alan had been the chief inspector on a murder case that was never solved. Dorothy thought it might be interesting to revisit the case to see if they could bring the case to a close. Cornwall has many old pirate caves –now used by smugglers. The body of the dead girl had been found in one of the caves. Alan was not too interested in revisiting the old case – especially now that he was retired and had no legal standing in revisiting the case… but the call of duty, especially when the Cornwall police would welcome his help, was strong. –Well written and better than many “cozy” mysteries.

    This is another in the cozy mystery series featuring Dorothy Martin, ex-pat American now married to retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt. When the summer rain drives Dorothy to exasperation, she suggests to her husband that they repair to a sunnier locale, namely Cornwall, where Alan had joined the police force many decades ago. When a murder takes place in the same smuggler's cove where a similar scenario had taken place during Alan's tenure in the Penzance police, Dorothy and her husband are drawn into the investigation.

    I like this series but wish it had more of the humour found in the mysteries of M.C. Beaton or Rhys Bowen.

    Many years ago, Dorothy Martin's now retired policeman husband failed to solve his first murder case. When he confesses to Dorothy that he's always felt unhappy about the case, she plans a short vacation to his once home area in Cornwall, hoping that they can find some closure for him. Instead, they meet a beautiful young woman and her ailing mother, who seem to have a secret reason for visiting Penzance. The problem with this book, besides the total lack of understanding of youth culture, is that I picked the killer on first appearance, even before the inevitable modern crime took place. I kept thinking, "no, this is too obvious, it must be a red herring," but no, it wasn't.

    I love this series and this book didn't let me down. An unsolved death of over thirty years ago still bothered Alan Nesbitt, Dorothy Martin's now-retired chief constable husband. Dorothy decides they need a vacation from Englands rain so what better place than Cornwall where the sun was shining. Dorothy would be able to practice her sleuthing on an old crime and get some sun at the same time.

    The problem with this book was that I got too attached to the murder victim, and her death was painful.
    Murder mysteries are only fun with a certain detachment from the victim. To a lesser degree, this was also a problem with Killing Cassidy.


  7. says:

    It was quite a cozy mystery. Being that the protagonist and her husband her husband were older, I found some of the things they referred to in the book as a walk down memory lane. However, I found the plot itself quite engaging.


  8. says:

    A Sweet & Easy read (or listen as I did in 2002 via tape) - read by Kate Reading.


  9. says:

    Not as good as some of her others, but I always adore Dorothy Martin.

    I have read these books as fast as I can find them. I love the elderly newlyweds solving mysteries together. Fun and easy to read.
