Tursten has entertained readers for 20 years with her series of crime novels ... Her new character, identified only as Maud, is another brilliant creation ... She is presented here in five episodes, all dark, irreverent, and hilariously funny.
You’ll love every word of every story in this book as you watch how Maud reacts to those who attempt to take advantage of the elderly and the weak ... You will want to get An Elderly Lady is Up to No Good for anyone you know who enjoys reading great stories, whether they be mysteries or otherwise, but you will want to read it yourself first.
Maud’s murders always have plausible motives, and she is a sympathetic character as long as one keeps a safe distance. Each story takes its sweet time to develop and concludes with a juicy dose of senior justice. The book is pure fun, although slender. Another volume of Maud’s misdeeds would be most welcome.
