Review: Death And The Pleasant Voices

Death And The Pleasant Voices Death And The Pleasant Voices by Mary Fitt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A gem of a read. A good mystery with the right sort of intrigue and atmosphere. The Anglo-Indian's angst was a tad exaggerated though. Poor fellow. To imagine that he was the result of two people's love for each other and yet to be so lonely and wretched.


First Line: I have never seen such lightening or such rain in all my life.

  1. That first line certainly gets your attention, Neeru! Glad you enjoyed this so well.

  2. Good to hear this one is worthwhile. Fitt has a reputation for being hit and miss as a mystery writer, but not too bad as a novelist. I have a couple of her books including her very first one, THREE SISTERS FLEW HOME. Still -- of course -- unread.

    1. She was an absolutely unknown author to me, John, before I borrowed this book but am now impressed enough to borrow another of hers. Why don't you read her first book and let us know what you think.
