Murdoch Mysteries - Poor Tom Is Cold

Synopsis

Murdoch Mysteries - Poor Tom Is Cold by Maureen Jennings

Detective William Murdoch is not convinced that Constable Oliver Wicken - a man who was the sole support of his mother and invalid sister - committed suicide. When he begins to suspect the involvement of Wicken's neighbours, the Eakin family, Mrs Eakin is committed to a lunatic asylum. Is she really insane, he wonders, or has she been deliberately driven over the edge?

Reviews

Contemporary social, religious, and sexual mores frame a strong plot line and delineate a resourceful 'hero.
Highly recommended. (Library Journal) A satisfying mystery perfectly wedded to its evocative setting

. Jennings's sales and reputation should continue to grow with this third strong effort. (Publisher's Weekly)
