Death of an Avid Reader provides a perfect introduction to the extraordinary nurse-turned-private-detective Kate Shackleton. Though it's the sixth title of a delightful series, this is an ideal stand-alone mystery—with a wicked web of a plot set in the post-WWI English countryside, a full cast of well-drawn characters, thrilling atmospheric details, and a haunted historic library to boot! Skeptical of the alleged ghost in the library basement, Kate nonetheless takes part in a ceremony to remove the spirit, and that is when Dr. Potter, a mathematician, is found strangled to death beneath a fallen bookcase… and the tenacious sleuthing begins!
