Overview

When the body of well-liked and respectable Glenda Roberts is discovered at the bottom of a former slate mine, now a busy tourist attraction, pandemonium erupts in the North Wales town of Llanelen. Penny Brannigan finds herself drawn into the investigation when jars of her house-brand hand cream are found among counterfeit inventory Glenda and her sister were selling.

Police are convinced that the mine operator whose asthmatic son suffered an almost-fatal attack due to the merchandise is responsible for Glenda's death. But Penny's not so sure. A visit to Glenda's mother only deepens her conviction that a hidden family secret is the real reason for the murder.

Elizabeth J. Duncan's Slated for Death is a wonderful traditional mystery with snappy dialogue, lively characters and an enchanting setting.

Dorothy Sayers fans will welcome Duncan’s fifth Penny Brannigan mystery set in North Wales (after 2013’s Never Laugh as a Hearse Goes By). When the body of the primary organizer of the annual St. David’s Day concert is discovered in the abandoned slate mine, now a tourist attraction, where the concert is to take place, Penny is quick to step in and help Det. Chief Insp. Gareth Davies with the investigation. Meanwhile, Penny and her business partner in the Llanelen Spa discover that someone is selling a counterfeit version of the spa’s special hand lotion at the local market. Penny must also keep the concert’s special-guest singer happy. Duncan doesn’t generate much tension or suspense as she shifts among the various story lines, but she does a good job evoking the toil and hardship intrinsic to the slate mining industry that supported the area’s economy for over two centuries. She manages a neat surprise ending, too. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary Agency. (Apr.)
