    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleA tightly written murder mystery written in the early 1960s Like many books written that long ago a large number of the difficulties faced by characters investigating the crime or indeed just carrying out their normal job related duties have disappeared from modern life due to technological changes Simply getting news about a murder that occurred in another city in the same state involve locating copies of that city's newspapers in bound form from the nearest library and reading each edition looking for any mentions Finding a 'lost' family member takes weeks even though that person has not changed his name or his social security number and even though he is a senior office in a successful companyAt the Sloan Guarantee Trust phones are all landlines and calls are answered by female secretaries who type letters and take dictation Messenger boys carry files from one floor of the building to another Entire roo

    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleI particularly recommend this series and the 6 book series written by the same authors under the pseudonym RB Dominic to those who like the Nero Wolfe mysteries Stout's Wolfe stories are my favorite mysteries and Lathen's are the closest to Stout at his best that I've found closest in tone plotting and overall intelligence

    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleI picked this up after seeing the author mentioned on Rachel Neumeier's blog Reading the ebook involved wading through two prologues explaining that Emma Lathen was a pen name for two very accomplished women calling them an American Christie and the detective Nero Wolfe with a portfolio It's a bad idea to make such comparisons be

    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleI liked it and was somewhat surprised because I recall attempting it earlier like 40 years earlier and perhaps I was too young to be interested in trust accounts But not now I remember my disappontment at the Ava Lee series too much violence not enough forensic accounting so I was pleased that the rules of the trust were laid out clearlyThe book follows a familiar format of older amateur sleuth younger protégé and helpful police officer but handles it well I was always engaged never wanted to toss away the book in anger thank goodness it's on my Kindle and it was well paced and plotted Louise Penny take

    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleNot a cozy Christmas mystery this is supposed to be a clever whodunit with a Christmas theme but it falls flat It is basically a missing persons case when one of the heirs to a trust cannot be found and John Putnam Thatcher investment banker must follow up He assigns the leg work to his lowly assistant who finds that the missing heir has been recently murdered All of the other heirs are now suspects and Thatcher tracks them down interviews them and gets the killer to confess Straight forward mystery with no plot twists or clever ending The

    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleIn my opinion the banker makes an unsuccessful sleuth Much of the leg work is done in the POV of two other characters We do not get inside the main character's head enough to want to follow him There is little urgency in spite of snow storms and ticking clocks When the solution is revealed it does not seem to be the work of the main character pivoting on hysterics in other characters instead My curiosity has been satisfied I won't be reading nay books by Emma Lathen

    Kindle Emma Lathen æ æ Banking on Death PDF Ø Banking on Kindle - banking download, death book, Banking on epub, Banking on Death KindleThis did not get 5 stars because there were 3 suitable candidates for whodunit and I am not consoled by Thatcher saying it wasn't premeditated and with a good lawyer he would get a lesser charge In the meantime there is an entirely suitable solution to the business problems that are raised but not really resolved So I didn't like that the wrong guy did it
