    One thought on “Murder Comes First”

    1. "Weigand!" Deputy Chief Artemus O'Maley said, in a great voice."Sir?" Lieutenant William Weigand, Acting Captain Homicide West, said in a much smaller one."The Norths!" O'Malley told him. "Don't you see them?" ***"I won't have it," O'Malley said. "I've told you a hundred times. You know what happens when you let them in, don't you"Bill Weigand nodded and looked attentive."Gets all screwy," O'Malley said. "Doesn't make any sense. Gets so you don't understand a damn thing."In Murder Comes First (1 [...]

    2. Mr. and Mrs. North are both entertaining. In this book, however, Pam North has the limelight. Her three aunts, all unmarried sisters from Cleveland, come to New York. They visit an old friend who dies in their presence. One of the sisters is arrested, so Pam immediately gets involved.This book was published in the early 1950's and gives the reader an authentic voice of the times. New York City is where the Norths live, so you get a feel for the city. Some things stay the same (taxi drivers, traf [...]

    3. Pam's three aunts from Cleveland are visiting and end up embroiled in a murder. The aunts are fun, especially bookish Aunt LucindaI love her. Another fun read.

    4. So delightful, I'd forgotten what a delightful period piece created by snappy dialogue (although the woman as ditze meme is a bit overdone). Loved this series in the past, joy to be rereading now that evokes released to library. DPL ebook via total boox

    5. PG for language. So I usually scratch out any swear words or misuse of the Lord's name, this one had a word out on every page. Each may not have been a 'bad' word, but they were not needed either. The author didn't have the vocabulary to stretch the dialog out and resorted to profanity. As bad as the language was, the grammar was worse. I didn't expect an intellectual masterpiece, but this was terrible. The writing was so poor that in places I had to re-read paragraphs and then ended up just gue [...]

    6. It's an older book, first published in 1961. I'm a huge fan of the older style mysteries like Agatha Christie and other British books. For the more modern reader it may not be their" cup of tea", but I loved it! Pam and Gerald North live nice apartment in New York with their 3 catsMartini, Gin and Sherry. These two are rather like Tommy and Tuppance, putting their noses into a murder investigation. Pam's 3 maiden aunts come for a visit and the trouble (and fun) begin. Enjoy going back in time an [...]

    7. CuteThe cultural references were interesting, both clothing and personalities. The story line was just cute, not very exciting or mysterious. I remember this tv s show but had not read the books; at least, not that I remember. Perhaps it was not worth remembering and I generally like period pieces.

    8. It seemed like there were entirely too many points of view in this book, and some of the traits that make these books so enjoyable were gone.
