Farcical humor, from slapstick to quiet witticisms, abounds in this mystery of a birder's murder during a midnight owl count.

About the Author

Charlotte MacLeod (1922-2005) was an internationally bestselling author of cozy mysteries. Born in Canada, she moved to Boston as a child, and lived in New England most of her life. After graduating from college, she made a career in advertising, writing copy for the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company before moving on to Boston firm N. H. Miller & Co., where she rose to the rank of vice president. In her spare time, MacLeod wrote short stories, and in 1964 published her first novel, a children's book called Mystery of the White Knight.

HASH(0xa863b444) out of 5 stars Another great read April 29 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Peter Shandy and his advertures are always interesting, funny and time-consuming. It is very difficult to put the book down before it is finished. A very unique method of murder and a rather unique cast of characters but this author's typical great book.

HASH(0xa5baa618) out of 5 stars I Love the Peter Shandy Mystery Series April 5 2013
By Jane Blythe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love Charlotte MacLeod and her style of writing. The Peter Shandy mystery series is funny, always surprising and a total joy to read. Her characters are full, real and interesting as their lives play out in the story in ways you never dreamed could happen. I read this series as I waited in the pickup line at my kid’s school. I can't tell you how many times other parents would come up and ask me what I was reading that was so funny I was laughing out loud or so engrossing that I didn't notice school was out and the line was moving. If you love an old fashioned mystery with great characters and many plot twists--this book and series are for you. You’ll be so glad you got this book!
HASH(0xa402b5a0) out of 5 stars Too many owls Jan. 7 2016

My goodness! The FBI should assign a station to Balaclava County! Murder and kidnapping, mayhem and Tugboats!

Professor Peter Shandy and his friends investigate when newly minted Professor Winifred Banks finds trouble coming at her from all directions.

The annual Balaclava County owl count is disrupted when an annoying engineer who pushed his way into the party is killed. Scratching his head over why, Peter finds strange doings all over and they seem to connect to the Binks estate trust. Is it a takeover? Extortion? Murder? Mayhem? Or is it all of the above.

This one has much going on all at once with the strange interconnectedness of Balaclava. Enjoy!
HASH(0xa402b030) out of 5 stars One of my favorite mystery authors-gentle and relaxing May 30 2016
By Randee Baty - Published on

I'm such a huge fan of Charlotte MacLeod and her style of writing. It's almost hard to describe how she uses words. Her language is funny, archaic, witty, clever, old-fashioned, smart, and modern all at the same time. She is just a fabulous wordsmith. Her plots are well-constructed and her characters are eminently likeable. There is nothing gritty or hard-boiled in her books. These are gentle, humorous mysteries that relax you and take you away to their wonderful little world. The other day I was making a list of the five authors I would take to a desert island and I just realized that I would have to make room for one more. Charlotte MacLeod is totally desert-island worthy.
