"When an elderly boarder at a Bakerhaven bed-and-breakfast
drops dead during afternoon tea, there's nothing
particularly suspicious about it--except for the Sudoku in
his jacket pocket. But when a second body turns up in the
window seat and an autopsy shows both men were poisoned with
elderberry wine, the Puzzle Lady suspects she's dealing with
a cold-blooded killer who for some reason is copying the
Cary Grant movie Arsenic and Old Lace, in which two old
ladies who run a boarding house poison elderly widowers and
bury them in the basement. More murders, more puzzles, and a
grave dug in the cellar seem to cement the theory.
Ordinarily, Cora would eat a case like this for breakfast,
but for once she can't figure it out. And she's not sure if
the clues don't add up, or if the much-married Puzzle Lady
is just distracted by being involved in her first romantic
entanglement in years. This latest in Hall's Puzzle Lady
series is filled with laughs, mayhem, and fun new puzzles by
Will Shortz. Mystery and puzzle fans will find much to enjoy"--
