Kort biografi
Catherine Aird is the pseudonym of author Kinn Hamilton McIntosh. She was born in Yorkshire and intended to follow in her father’s footsteps and study medicine. She had to abandon that idea when she came down with a serious kidney condition that required an extended period of bed rest. During that time, she read a great deal of detective fiction. She wrote "two or three bad novels before turning to crime, so to speak — definitely a case of poacher turned gamekeeper." In 1966, she published The Religious Body, and since then has written more than 20 crime fiction novels and story collections. Many of them feature Detective Chief Inspector C.D. Sloan and Detective Constable Crosby of the CID in the fictional town of Berebury, West Calleshire, England. She served as chairman of the Crime Writers' Association from 1990-91. She holds an honorary M.A. from the University of Kent and received the M.B.E. for her services to the Girl Guides Association. She has made her home in a small village near Canterbury, Kent for most of her life, living in the same house since 1946.

Interesting plot and twists with engaging characters add to the enjoyment of the story. Clean. Quotes: Biblical verses (not preachy), Bacon, Sherlock, and others. Excellent narration (use faster speech rate if desired). Recommended. 👍 4-⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

An old-fashioned mystery, smart and funny. Good read.

I'm not sure I understand the title. It was a good mystery. Poor Mrs Sloan having her baby while her husband is out solving crimes. Not as captivating as Henreitta Who? but fun anyway.

A fun cozy mystery. Great narrator. I really enjoyed this. Flew through it. Quite the page turner for such a sweet cozy mystery. I look forward to reading more of this series.
