Join charming, shambling private detective Charlie Bradshaw for one of crime fiction's cleverest and funniest series, The Charlie Bradshaw Mysteries, written by award-winning poet and novelist Stephen Dobyns
Everyman detective Charlie Bradshaw lands deep trouble in his sixth mystery in Saratoga Springs.
Three puzzles revolving around poems come together in a perplexing case: an octogenarian in a nursing home writes a strange verse about the death of one of the carers; robberies at the Bentley Hotel are accompanied by a rhyme left by the burglar; and a poetry critic is attacked.
Into this mess stumble Charlie and his ineffectual companion Victor Plotz. One terrible disguise and some very suspect sleuthing later, and our heroes are in trouble again.
