When the body of Glenda Roberts is found at the bottom of a former slate mine, Penny Brannigan must chip away at the clues to clear her own name when jars of her house-brand hand cream are found among counterfeit inventory Glenda and her sister were selling.

McMillan Palgrave

When the body of well-liked and respectable Glenda Roberts is discovered at the bottom of a former slate mine, now a busy tourist attraction, pandemonium erupts in the North Wales town of Llanelen. Penny Brannigan finds herself drawn into the investigation when jars of her house-brand hand cream are found among counterfeit inventory Glenda and her sister were selling.

Police are convinced that the mine operator whose asthmatic son suffered an almost-fatal attack due to the merchandise is responsible for Glenda's death. But Penny's not so sure. A visit to Glenda's mother only deepens her conviction that a hidden family secret is the real reason for the murder.

Elizabeth J. Duncan's Slated for Death is a wonderful traditional mystery with snappy dialogue, lively characters and an enchanting setting.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Welsh cozy. The main character is very kind and concerned about helping others without being sappy. I wish we had more of this in fiction and in the real world. Easy to sit back, relax, and enjoy. Interesting characters and fun to try to figure out 'who done it'.
