Laura Fitz is at it again! Cookie the Corpse Magnet can’t seem to stop this propensity for finding dead bodies. The fact that she finds this one is lying in the dumpster, isn’t really her fault. She’s doing an assignment for her crime scene investigations class, when she comes across the body of Dennis, a resident in the apartment building. Once again, Laura becomes embroiled in an investigation that brings her to the brink of disaster. Her long suffering hunk of a husband, Gerry, can’t keep up—poor guy!
Karen Vaughan’s cozy mystery, Dead Men Don’t Swing, is a wonderfully entertaining read. Her characters are funny, quirky and full of life. Her stories are top notch and full of sarcastic humor.
Vaughan has delivered another villain to loathe in the person of Missy Sawyer. Fortunately for Laura, Missy is more cocky than capable. I love following the antics of Laura and Gerry Fitz, along with friendly police detective, Gibbons.
Dead Men Don’t Swing is a wonderfully light look at crime. Fun for everyone!
