She was about twenty, with long blond hair, and her body was found a few days after she fell from the cliffs to her death on the rocks below. No one identified her; no one reported a missing girl.

WELL WRITTEN. KEEPS ONE GUESSING UNTIL NTHE END. I ENJOYED THE CLOSE INTERACTION OF DOROTHY AND ALAN WORKING TOGETHER. LOTS OF INTERESTING VIEWS OF INDIANA. WELL DONE

I always enjoy these cozy mysteries, and it was interesting because this one takes place on America. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Jeanne Dams books, both her Dorothy Martin and Hilda series are fun and relaxing reads. I love Hilda, and anyone who enjoys historical fiction and old houses will love her too. Enjoy.

Another great story.

The usually impeccable Kate Reading does a fine job with performing the heroine, Dorothy Martin; unfortunately, she has trouble producing a satisfactory voice and presence for the British retired detective husband. It makes for some discomfort although not to a degree that measurably depresses the quality of the script from which she works. That script, the text of a mystery by Jeanne M. Dams, is generally interesting, but not of superior quality. She does make us feel the bewilderment of an American widow returning to her home town in Indiana, accompanied by her recently acquired English husband. The object of the trip is to fulfill a request of an old teacher and friend, who has died at an advanced age, to investigate his death as the murder of which he is certain he will be the victim. They find that the idea of murder in his case simply does not conform to any of the facts known to the police, friends or acquaintances. Driven by the heroines sense of guilt over having lost contact with her old friend, she and her husband persist in their efforts. I believe the recounting of these efforts and the reactions of the heroine will draw the reader into the story. The denouement certainly involves motivations which, in their particularities, are rather unique.
All in all, a decent story, well read with, the exception noted. The average mystery reader should not be disappointed.

Sexagenarian American Dorothy Martin has lived in England for three years. Her husband of two years ex-Deputy Constable Alan Nesbitt recognizes that Dorothy has a zest for living, but cannot understand how she always seems to land in the middle of a homicide investigation. While the happily married duo eats breakfast, a letter arrives from the states stating that a dear friend recently passed away leaving Dorothy with $5,000 provided she returns to Indiana to collect her inheritance.

Dorothy knows that ninety-five year old Kevin Cassidy would never have capriciously called her home unless he had cause. Accompanied by Alan, Dorothy returns to the American hinterland only to receive the check and a letter in which the deceased claims someone murdered him and he wants hr to investigate his claim. The medical records state that Kevin died from pneumonia, but a little digging surfaces viable suspects with means, motives, and opportunities to abet Mother Nature.

KILLING CASSIDY seems similar in style to the works of Agatha Christie and consequently fans of the great author will enjoy this old-fashioned amateur sleuth tale. Alan and Dorothy are a warm couple whose sweet, realistic romance proves the furnace still runs. The story line is cerebral and complex with strong secondary characters (including the deceased) adding depth and color to the plot. Jeanne M. Dams creates another winning novel that will send elated mystery lovers seeking her previous works.

The first book of this series is one of my all-time favorites. Maybe that is why I had higher expectations for this installment of Dorothy Martin's adventures. Compared to the first five books in the series, Killing Cassidy is definitely the weakest.
Unlike the other reviewers here, I didn't mind that Dorothy and Alan left England for America. In fact, it was a lot of fun to see Dorothy come to terms with how much her life has changed. Too bad the mystery itself was lacking.
It seems like the author was more concerned with her message about healthcare and less concerned with constructing a solid mystery. The problem is, I read mysteries to be entertained and this one had me wanting to skim over the preachy parts. The supporting characters were fun, but we didn't see enough of them. Finally, the ending was too abrupt and under-explained.
