The Sketching Detective is back for its seventh installment; this time focusing on two crisscross murders occurring several days apart from each other, and involving persons whose ties are bound by blood.
In Fetching Fiona and the Sketching Detective Solve the Crisscross Murders, the deaths of two men awaken the attention of two of the town’s residents, Jack MacKay and his wife, Fiona, as they help the police figure out who could be behind such deaths. And because the road to the truth is never easy, the couple finds themselves lagging behind individuals who may or may not serve to aid the truth, and in the process exercising their abilities to decipher the reasons for the back to back murders.
The characters’ sense of humour finds relevance in every chapter, smoothening the rough edges of the tense investigation. One outstanding feature of McCormac’s latest offering is that it never runs out of witty detail, making reading all the more light and breezy.
