The Dead Shall be Raised and The Murder of a Quack - George Bellairs

it's not as outright funny as Death of a Busybody, though a wry flavor remains, but it has grown on me with each chapter, and I'm quite happy with it. now, I'm braced for the fact that Bellairs is not known for wonderful solutions to his whodunits--he does not rival Agatha Christie in that field--but I at least hope there is some surprise and fun to finding out who the killer is here...a killer guilty of a 23 year old murder (or two), plus, well, someone else has just died. The Murder of a Quack looms; I think I'll finish the first novel in this "2-pak" tonight!
