Novelist Anthony Payne's murder didn't shock the stage and literary luminaries who graced the glamorous gat. This is book #25 in a series by the very prolific Frances Lockridge I have by no stretch of the imagination read 24 others but I am probably approaching a dozen and this is among my favoritesUsually I read this series for escape to Manhattan in the late 40's or 50's the featured couple spend a significant amount in New York restaurants and lounges And Mrs North usually ends up associating with characters who have either great wardrobes or stunning apartments that I enjoy reading about It is definitely a seuence of books where the whole series is much greater than the sum of its parts Individual books are fine fun escapist reading but the group evolves in to a kind of well drawn social history of mid Century Manhattan from the perspective of a clever woman with plenty of time on her handsThis book was than that it was a great story on its own filled with complex characters from the literary and theatrical world It is my favorite in the series to date

I thought I'd start things off nice and light and cozy with a trip to New York City in the late 50searly 60s and drop in on Pam and Jerry North and see what they're up to In Murder Has Its Points by Richard and Frances Lockridge the Norths are embroiled in another murder investigation when one of Jerry's star authors is killed by an apparent sniper shot after a publicity party Onlymaybe it wasn't a sniper after all Sure the city has had a rash of such shootings over the past few weeks but it does seem odd that Anthony Payne just happened to have a whole lineup of people who would have loved for him to drop dead In fact a few of them mentioned what a fine idea that would be while supposedly celebrating his success at the party And then of course he diddrop dead that isIt's not long after that Pam has visits from from various well wishing party goers who seem to be brimming with information that she might pass on to her nice policeman Pam's uicksilver brain begins working furiously while her nice policeman Captain Bill Weigand goes round to see if there is any reason to believe that this wasn't just another sniper shooting And not too long after that Pam is off sticking her neck out as Jerry and Bill call it trying to help one of her lame dogs a suspect in trouble who she believes to be innocent It all winds up with Pam and a group of suspects in a lonely house in the country Someone gets shot someone gets framed and Bill Jerry and the troops arrive just in time for the grand finaleAs always the Lockridges provide a nice breezy little mystery Sure it may be a bit much to believe that one couple and particularly the female half of the couple could wind up involved in so many murders Jessica Fletcher anyone but a little suspension of disbelief never hurt anyone Especially when it's so much fun I love slipping into an earlier time when there are taxis waiting on every corner special restaurants serving the perfect martinis and small publishing firms like North Books I also enjoy the way the Lockridges work the Siamese cats into their stories They write about the cats with just enough humor to make it fun without making it too cuteThis review read in paperback was first posted on my blog My Reader's Block Please reuest permission before reposting Thanks
