About the Author
Mary Richardson Daheim is a Seattle native with a communications degree from the University of Washington. Realizing at an early age that getting published in books with real covers might elude her for years, she worked on daily newspapers and in public relations to help avoid her creditors. She lives in her hometown in a century-old house not unlike Hillside Manor, except for the body count. Daheim is also the author of the Alpine mystery series, the mother of three daughters, and has three grandchildren.

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
