I have been randomly reading Lockridge s series for the past year and finally stumbled on Book 1 in the series For any reader interested in this series of gentle and slightly comic classic murder mysteries I recommend reading them in order I didn t do that but highly recommend that you do what I didn t doThe character development is far interesting if the books are experienced in seuence In this novel Mr Mrs North literally stumble upon a body the fun begins when they start sharing cocktails with the investigating officer Cocktails are a critical component of the Mr Mrs North stories and even the accomplished police officer in charge of the case doesn t have a problem tipping a few martinis during lunch I have to keep reminding myself that martini glasses were much much smaller in the 30 s and 40 s But a three martini lunch while on duty This series is filled with period details which I love each story takes you on a restaurant and bar tour of Greenwich Village or mid town Manhattan and Lockridge has a knack for creating an air of stylish living without over doing it The police procedural parts of his books bore me a bit but the fun of spending a few hours in the North s world is what lures me to return to another one of his booksPS DVD s are available of the televised Mr Mrs North mysteries from the 1950 s they are not nearly as much fun as the books but they may be of interest to fans of classic tv programs Ni bestias ni dioses upon a body the fun begins when they start sharing cocktails with the investigating officer Cocktails are a critical component of the Mr Mrs North stories and even the accomplished police officer in charge of the case doesn t have a problem tipping a few martinis during lunch I have to keep reminding myself that martini glasses were much much smaller in the 30 s and 40 s But a three martini lunch while on duty This series is filled with period details which I love each story takes you on a restaurant and bar tour of Greenwich Village or mid town Manhattan and Lockridge has a knack for creating an air of stylish living without over doing it The police procedural parts of his books bore me a bit but the fun of spending a few hours in the North s world is what lures me to return to another one of his booksPS DVD s are available of the televised Mr Mrs North mysteries from the 1950 s they are not nearly as much fun as the books but they may be of interest to fans of classic tv programs
