Review: The Postscript Murders by Elly Griffiths (2020)
DS Harbinder Kaur sees nothing to concern her in the account of Peggy Smith’s death – the death of a ninety-year-old woman with a heart condition should absolutely not be suspicious.
But the carer, Natalka, reveals that Peggy had been lying about her heart condition and that she had been sure someone was following her…
The reason to be suspicious is heightened by Peggy career (a ‘murder consultant’ who plotted deaths for authors) and Natalka being held at gunpoint by a masked figure when clearing out Peggy’s flat.
Then DS Harbinder Kaur thinks that maybe there is no such thing as an unsuspicious death after all.
This is the second in the DS Harbinder Kaur series by Elly Griffiths after The Stranger Diaries.
I did find it a bit heavy going at points and found it very hard to finish. I did finish it and the plot is well thought out and you do engage with the core characters but it is not as enjoyable as I have found either the Ruth Galloway books or the Brighton Mysteries of Elly Griffiths.
I received a free copy of this book from the publishers on NetGalley.
