Private investigator Digby Sloan's job is to escort prized artifacts from a museum in Sydney, Australia to London. When the most important piece is stolen and the curator murdered, both Scotland Yard and Sloan's bosses at home insist that he stay to help with the investigation, well Scotland Yard actually only means that the way police usually mean it but Digby has every intention of discovering who stole the Kangaroo carving and murdered a man.
It took me a while to connect with the Sloan's character but I came to admire him and enjoy his thought process. There is another character from Australia whose role mostly seems to be as a foil for Sloan. He really piqued my curiosity and I hope to see more of him in future books.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book for purposes of providing an unbiased review but I also chose to purchase a personal copy
Inspector Phineas Finnegan from Scotland Yard doesn’t share much, except that he still considers Digby a ‘person of interest’ and he’s not quite sure what to make of the Aborigine, but still he sends them off to help find a killer and the missing “roo.” Digby and Sharkfella, who spends more time in the loo or eating to be really helpful, are on their own. A surprisingly good partnership leads to the discovery of solicitors, mistresses, heirs, newspaper articles, strange family dynamic, and an octopus. Watch out, when the second body shows up!
I really enjoyed this ‘cozy’ romp from authors Sally J. Smith and Jean Steffens. The mystery was clever and the characters were fun…I really like “Sharkfella.” The writing was loads of fun with more than a few moments of ‘giggles’ courtesy of Digby’s dry sense of humor, and the ‘sparks’ in the cottage in the woods? Whew, a wild fire! Much like Christie herself, Smith and Steffens provides an endearing, yet flawed detective team who by their wits sort through the clues, and a mystery not short on twists and turns. I highly recommend this book...a cozy with a bit of an edge!
