There is a sort of euphoria if you burn your bridges
Hams are relevant to delis and lawyers. A lawyer appears under a rack of hams. Robert Stonecipher has made a nuisance of himself in the community trying to shut down people's businesses. Two mothers, Shelley and Jane, are bored with Cub Scouts and school awards assemblies and decide to team up to thwart Robert Stonecipher. Everyone shows up for the opening of a new deli and, as previously mentioned, Stonecipher is discovered under a rack of hams.
Under the circumstances nearly everyone in the community is a suspect until it is learned that Stonecipher died of natural causes. Next his secretary departs life and her death renews the efforts of the police officer, Mel, Jane's friend, to trace the possiblity that some people were being blackmailed by the pair. The solution to the mystery is of the psychological kind and is well done. The women, Jane and Shelley, along with Jane's son Mike, and Mel are delightfully rendered by the author.
Silence of the Hams
As usual an excellent book!!!!!!! I loved it and highly recommend it to everyone. Hard to 'put down'.
Fluffy, but fun
Jill Churchill never disappoints. Silence of the Hams continues the enjoyable Jane Jeffries series with Jane and Shelly investigating yet another murder in the wilds of suburbia. If you are looking for enduring literature, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a fun read, this is the right place.
