In the Market for Murder is a “Lady Hardcastle Mystery” and like the first Lady Hardcastle and her “servant” Florence Armstrong are tasked to solve a murder mystery as the local constabulary are busy with other, more pressing issues. Set in the early 20th century, the sleuthing is rudimentary, but that’s what makes these mysteries interesting and quaint. Setting off to find the killer before they even know for sure that the man was murdered. They come to find plenty of people who have motive and pretty much every person that they interview reviled the victim.
This is not an “edge of your seat” thrilling mystery, but I loved it just the same. Author T. E. Kinsey gets you to keep turning the page with a good story and many mysteries.
