Book Review: THE CASE OF THE DOTTY DOWAGER
The Case of the Dotty Dowager is part of British author Cathy Ace's series about the WISE women's detective agency. WISE stands for Welsh, Irish, Scottish, English, and the four women that make up the team are indeed a cross-section of British society. The plot revolves around a old dowager duchess that claimed to have seen a dead body in her home, a body that was not there when investigators arrived, and the team takes a week and a couple hundred entertaining pages to figure out that the old lady was telling the truth. The end is a little abrupt, and a bit obvious as to setting up the next book in the series, but this was a pretty entertaining and different take on the genre. I hope the library continues to pick up new books from this author as they become available .
