Book IV: Night of the Furies

9.00

The tiny village of Brooksford, Maryland, doesn’t seem to be the sort of place where everyone has a skeleton in their backyard, but that is almost exactly what is discovered when an archaeology project brings to light one set of remains after another. And these are not just any remains: they are bodies buried in a way that makes modern residents wonder—and fear—what happened to their ancestors two centuries ago. When the dig’s director is found dead—apparently murdered—more questions arise … such as, who hated him enough to plunge a trowel into his heart?

 Rory Roberts and her cat, Miss Cuddlywumps (a.k.a. Miss C) are there once again to sort out the clues, this time with the help of an unwanted houseguest. As Rory bumbles about in her usual random way, Miss C puts her classical education to work to narrow down a list of suspects and systematically investigate them. Clearly, the modern murder is the work of a Fury, one of those horrible goddesses of the underworld who come to pursue the wicked. But which of the likely suspects was furious enough to be the guilty Fury? And what might the mysterious deaths in the town’s distant past mean for its future?

From a reviewer:

I always look forward to another in the series, Miss Cuddlywumps Investigates, and particularly enjoyed Book IV: Night of the Furies. Roby Sweet nicely sketches scenes in the life of a tiny town that keeps stumbling into murder. In search of the malefactor, Rory Roberts and her discerning cat, Miss C, this time with the help of Rory’s mother Elaine, consider the town’s quirky denizens and visiting archaeologists. Not all the bodies found are recent ones; there’s a historical mystery in Brooksford, too. Realistic portrayals of excavators and archivists at work add to the fun. I loved the trenchant observations by the preternaturally educated Miss C as the plot drew me along. Night of the Furies makes wonderful bedtime reading – the perfect cozy.
