Who murdered Arnold? Not only did someone murder the poor man, his body was left in the stocks. There are several suspects ~ Kenneth, Rudolph, Leslie, Violet and Giles. Even though Giles is an attorney, I didn’t rule out Giles. They all have motive. According to all reports, Arnold was not a pleasant man, but who wanted to murder him? Inspector Hannasdye does not have an easy time investigating this mystery. The suspects babble on and on and on. Yes, there is a considerable amount of senseless talk in the story ~ such chatter! It takes a talented author to keep up with all that talk! There are a couple of surprises in the story and the plot is good. And! In spite of all the chatter, I did like the book. I liked the characters too. All of them. When the killer is revealed, I was not surprised. Goodness, nothing would have surprised me. 4**** stars.
