Review: Dread on Arrival

  • Title:  Dread on Arrival
  • Author:  Claudia Bishop
  • Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
  • Publisher: Berkley; Original edition (April 3, 2012)
  • ISBN-10: 0425247074

  • A knock-off show of antiques roadshow comes to Hemlock Falls, and with it - trouble.  Some B&Es in town, obnoxious visitors, and a show-down cook-off. 

    I really enjoy this series and it is like joining old (if tempermental) friends.  And I thought it was interesting that the murder was very late in the book.  So much character and scene building - it was a nice change.  I am not one that holds to the axiom that the murder must happen within the first few chapters.  Done well is done well and THIS was done well.  I did NOT see the killer's identity and motive coming...

    And I have to say that when a hustler tried to buy Quill's own painting as a fake at a ridiculously low price - I just had to laugh!
