The last word / Elly Griffiths.

Griffiths, Elly, (author.).

"Natalka and Edwin, whom we met in The Postscript Murders, are perfect if improbable partners in a detective agency. At eighty-four, Edwin regularly claims that he's the oldest detective in England. He is a master at surveillance, deploying his age as a cloak of invisibility. Natalka, Ukrainian-born and more than fifty years Edwin's junior, is a math whiz who takes any cases concerning fraud or deception. Despite a steady stream of minor cases, Natalka is frustrated. She loves a murder, as she's fond of saying, and none have come the agency's way. That is until local writer Melody Chambers dies. Melody's daughters are convinced that their mother was murdered. Edwin, a big fan of the obit pages, thinks that Melody's death is linked to that of an obituary writer who predeceased many of his subjects. The trail leads Edwin and Natalka's boyfriend, Benedict, to infiltrate a slightly sinister writers' retreat. When another writer is found dead the weekend they are there, Edwin thinks that there must be a clue in what the participants have written. Seeking professional help, the investigators turn to their friend DI Harbinder Kaur only to find that they have stumbled upon a plot that is stranger than fiction." -- Provided by dustjacket.
