Elections Can Be Murder

Tensions are running high in suburban Hancock, Connecticut as the local town elections approach. Series heroine Susan Henshaw finds herself right in the middle of the election excitement because her husband Jed is running for the Hancock city council. But when Ivan Deakin, one of the mayoral candidates, is poisoned right before giving a controversial speech, Susan dons her amateur sleuth role to help Hancock police chief Brett Fortesque solve Ivan's murder. Author Wolzien does a great job poking fun at the foibles of upper class Eastern suburbia. The mystery was a good one, too, that kept me guessing until the end.

Murder during the Silly Season

Jed is running for the Hancock town council, and the whole Henshaw clan is stressed out. Susan is spending time trying to be the perfect political wife amid vicious items planted in the local media about Jed, and the total disintigration of the candidate for mayor's wife. The big issue is the Landmark Commission's mission to control every building in town built before 1939. The third party candidate for mayor, Ivan Deakin, announces that he has a solution for everything and will announce it at a press conference. Unfortunately, he drops dead at the podium before he can make his speech. All the candidates, their families, and the police chief's new girlfriend seem to be suspects.Wolzien seems to have captured the life of a candidate and his family very accurately in this novel. One is surprised that there aren't more murders during the election season. In any case, they wouldn't be as amusing as this one.
