About the Author
Seattle native Mary Daheim began telling stories with pictures when she was four. Since she could neither read nor write, and her artistic talent was questionable, her narratives were sometimes hard to follow. By second grade, she had learned to string together both subjects and predicates, and hasn't stopped writing since. A former newspaper reporter and public relations consultant, Daheims first of seven historical romances was published in 1983. In addition to Avon Books' Bed-and-Breakfast series featuring Judith McMonigle Flynn, Daheim also pens the Alpine mysteries for Ballantine. She is married to David Daheim, a retired college instructor, and has three daughters -- Barbara, Katherine and Magdalen.

However, things turn ugly and weird when John is found murdered. The deceased turns out to actually be Legs Benedict, a mob hitman. His so-called wife has disappeared. Though the other guests have reasons to kill Legs, the police arrest Barney Schwartz, another person with mob ties. However, Judith wonders if he really is the killer. Even the Mafia involvement cannot stop Judith from sleuthing.
LEGS BENEDICT is the sixth novel in this highly regarded cozy that constantly attains top-ten status on several bestseller lists such as the Mystery Scene and the Armchair Detective. The current novel retains the amusing interplay between Judith, her spouse Joe, her cousin Renie, and even Renie's never appearing husband. The motives of the support cast and their own interrelationships enhance an entertaining who-done-it. Mary Daheim should return to the bestseller list with a novel that will have readers seeking the previous five Bed and Breakfast books.

I really enjoy this series, but this was a bit of a disappointment. I enjoy the titles and the characters. If you haven't read any of these yet, don't start with this one. Read morePublished on July 18 1999
