Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

When long time friend, Professor Charles Bohn, is found dead supposedly by his own hand, Anna Owen suspects foul play. The Owen gang investigation heads to the professor's home but stalls when a mysterious prowler runs into Anna as he tries to escape through the back door.

The search uncovers a single clue, a discarded crossword puzzle that at first appears to reveal nothing. As they consider giving up, Nic deciphers the professor's message and discovers a trail of corruption involving high profile leaders from private industry to police and city and state officials, a discovery that puts the group in grave danger.

While the investigation continues, news from Nuremberg brings to light the death and destruction caused by the Third Reich's sinister agenda. Word of the atrocities spread, appalling many and wearing on the protective layer of innocence preserved by a few, but not all citizens are disgusted or surprised. When the case takes two of our heroines undercover, they learn that efforts to create a superior race did not end in a bunker in Berlin.

The second Nic & Nora Mystery, 'Puzzled by the Clues', follows both the blossoming relationship of Nic and Nora and that of Anna and Allen. Characters at the heart of the Owen gang and those on the perimeter, offer humor, wisdom, and the belief that there is always hope. As Anna points out, "Maybe after two World Wars, people are beginning to understand the insanity of hate."

4.0 su 5 stelle Good mystery 2 aprile 2015

The first half of this mystery is a bit stiff, but then it picks up nicely. The strongest element of the book is its plot. As in the first book, the plot did not meander off in the direction I first anticipated, but had a satisfying ride through several unexpected twists. It ended well. I liked the cast of characters. The historical aspects are always interesting to me, and were also well done. The main couple did not run into as much resistance as one would expect in 1946, but sometimes too much realism is entirely overrated. I read mysteries all the time and enjoyed this one. Don't let the early stiffness put you off. Stick with it and you'll enjoy the book.

Jean Sheldon kept me hanging on, again, with this second historical mystery in her Nic and Nora series. The new couple find themselves waist deep in a mystery that confounded me to, up to the very end. The expert way in which Sheldon wove historical political significance with current social and political events was impressive.

Sheldon's characters are unique but also endearingly human. Nic and Nora's relationship begins to blossom in a very organic way, in this second book. As dangerous as it is for the girls to be embedded into mystery after mystery, their relationship makes it possible for them to overcome all the challenges they face. At the same time, their standing as a lesbian couple in a time period where homosexuality was misunderstood makes their personal struggles equally fascinating. Sheldon does a great job revealing the unique worries that would accompany a same-sex relationship in her historical time period, while also revealing what has not changed in the mindset of society, after so many decades.

Sheldon proves that she has mystery down to an art in this second book. This reader wanted a little more detailed descriptions of place and person, once in a while, but these little things did not keep me from falling in love with Nic and Nora all over again.

If you love historical fiction and mystery, but have been yearning for something new and unique, give this series a try. You will not be sorry you did. I can't wait to get my hands on Nic and Nora's next mystery. Thanks, Jean Sheldon, for your tireless efforts in making your work polished, intriguing and smart.

Everyone from the first book is back. Relationships deepen and Nora is fleshed out more. The mystery was intriguing, with parallels to today's issues.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Great Novel 13 giugno 2014
Di Daniel C Larsen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I am a huge fan of murder mystery movies but I am a bit spoiled by the film industry, so I would like to add that most mystery books do not have what takes to seize my attention. One of the things that grabbed me the most about Puzzled by the Clues by Jean Sheldon, was how she masterfully developed each character while intertwining darkness and humor together in a way that never seemed as though it was being forced. Sheldon catapulted her two main characters, Nic & Nora, into in a web of political corruption, murder, but also into the intricacies of a relationship between two lesbians living in Post-World War II, Chicago. Prior to Puzzled by the Clues, I read She Overheard Murder, the first of the Nic & Nora Mystery series, and I was really concerned that the sequel would not be as good as the first novel, but this was not the case because of how Sheldon was able to assimilate historical facts from this specific time period in Chicago along with how she combined it into her fiction novel. My expectations of this book were met, if anything Puzzled by the Clues has crossed every boundary, which is what allowed this great mystery story to grow from beginning to end. If you like to read crime and detective stories, and like really good plots, then Puzzled by the Clues is perfect for you. My congratulations go out to the author for an exceptional and entertaining murder mystery.
