Beach Reads: The Case of the Dotty Dowager

The Case of the Dotty Dowager by Cathy Ace

This first in a series featuring the detectives of the WISE Enquiry Agency – four women from the four nations of Great Britain (Wales, Ireland, Scotland and England) – is a witty and fun country house mystery. An elderly duchess in a grand manor house deep in the English countryside is certain she saw a dead body that has since disappeared. Her son thinks she has gone senile, but the duchess knows what she saw and has the bloody knit cap she picked up near the body to prove it. Only the unique skills of the WISE detectives can solve this mystery quickly and discreetly.
