Sinossi

Five previously published and award nominated mystery short stories by novelist Camille LaGuire.

In the title story, "Waiter, There's a Clue in My Soup!" two police detectives sort out a poisoning case over lunch at the deli, with a little help from a foodie in the corner. (This story was nominated for a Derringer award in 2003.)

"The Hoosegow Strangler" was the first story featuring Mick and Casey, a pair of young gunslingers turned detective. In this locked room story, a witness they were guarding is murdered, and they have to solve the crime to preserve their reputation.

"Trail of the Lonesome Stickpin" finds Mick drugged by a pair of pretty femmes fatales, and he has to figure out what happened before Casey shoots him. (This story was put forward for an Edgar by its publisher.)

In the fourth story, a killer believes that all he needs is a strong "Alibi" to pull off the perfect crime, but he finds that works against him.

In the final story, "The Promise," a teenaged girl has to keep her brutal father from turning her brother into a killer. (This story was also nominated for a Derringer in 2007.)

(This collection is 16,000 words long, or equivalent to about 60 pages of a mass market paperback.)

3.0 su 5 stelle Title is a bit misleading 27 agosto 2010
Di SingleEyePhotos - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I'll start off by saying that all 5 of the mini-mysteries in this book were very well written. However, I do think the title of the collection is a bit misleading, to say the least. None of the stories were humorous, and only the first one was at all related to food. Of the remaining 4, 3 were Westerns, starring the author's duo of Mick and Casey (apparently there are full-length books showcasing this couple). The last story was not really a 'mystery', per se, and was much darker than the others. I was hoping that all the stories would be 'light' or 'humorous' mysteries. They were indeed 'light' (In the best sense of the term), in that they were easy reads and there was no explicit violence, bad language, or anything that even the most prudish could take offense at (quite an accomplishment nowadays, IMO!). My personal taste does not run to Westerns, so I was disappointed, although, as I said up front, the writing was excellent. Just don't assume from the title that this will be a collection of 'cozy' or 'humorous' short mysteries. If you like Westerns, then go for it, you'll enjoy these for the price.
4.0 su 5 stelle These are good little stories 24 gennaio 2017

I don't know about mysteries, but these little stories are good reading.

It only takes a few pages for the author to give you the complete story with a satisfying solution.
2.0 su 5 stelle Stories Are Hit Or Miss 25 gennaio 2013
Di zagain - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This collection of short stories contains five short mystery/revenge tales and a preview of another full novel from the author. The first story shares the title of the collection and focuses on two detectives having lunch while discussing a current case. It's a good start to the collection as it's well-written, well-paced, and has a satisfying end result. Following that, however, are stories which go a bit down hill in quality. The next two stories ("The Hoosegow Strangler" and "Trail of the Lonesome Stickpin") feature the author's Old West husband/wife duo of Mick and Casey. They both read as young adult fiction, which contrasts starkly with the first story in the collection, and don't really do a good job of introducing the characters or making the reader care about them. The second of these (Lonesome Stickpin) is a bit of a mess in terms of pacing and narration -- there are parts of the story that are simply difficult to follow and the storyline isn't interesting enough to justify re-reading sections to follow the specifics. While the first three stories are more closely aligned with the mystery genre, the final two are tales of revenge. The fourth story ("Alibi") makes another stark transition to a modern tale of a planned homicide. Although somewhat interesting, it's a very quick tale that likely could have been better fleshed out. The final story ("The Promise") transitions back to the Old West and features a story about a dysfunctional family. Overall, i would give it two stars. The major upside is the quality of the first story. The collection was freebie when I got it and was worth downloading for the title story -- the rest could be easily skipped.
4.0 su 5 stelle Unique Stories 31 dicembre 2016
Di Avid Mystery Reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

These stories are crime stories of various kinds and settings from one where two detectives are trying to figure out a murder during dinner to one which is an old fashioned western setting. All are unique, a bit rough, and a bit raw. A couple had a bit of adult language and other dialog. Overall, not my favorite genre but a couple were nominated for awards so these are good examples of this particular genre of mystery.

3.0 su 5 stelle 3 Westerns, 2 Yankees 20 aprile 2012
Di MB - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a little collection of little stories - I think the longest would take up about 6 pages in a paperback. Maybe. 3 of the stories were very strongly and obviously Westerns, and 2 were more modern, citified, 'yankee' stories.

I liked the first story (can't remember the name), the story that led to 'Clue in the Soup' in the title, and the story "Alibi", possibly one of the shortest in the novel. The 3 westerns weren't bad, per se, but they didn't inspire me to want more from the author. I genuinely couldn't figure out the how-done-it in the locked room mystery, but I pretty easily figure out the twist in the story in the story about the two lovely ladies.

There was absolutely nothing negative about this title. There just wasn't any one thing that grabbed me and made me sit up and go "Wow!".

I got this free, and I wouldn't feel ripped off for $1, but much more than that and my expense would outstrip my enjoyment.

As long as it's free, or if you like Westerns, this would be a "Get".
