Publicity information indicated THE FOG LADIES is a “debut, cozy caper.” The log line… “Several residents of a much-sought-after San Francisco Pacific Heights apartment building die under mysterious circumstances…” intrigued me.
elderly ladies die in their Pacific Heights San
Francisco apartment building, Sarah James, a tired
intern who also resides in the building, assumes the deaths are simply
growing old. The Fog Ladies think it’s something more sinister, murder.
Though I understand the author was trying to increase the tension and sense of foreboding, I was disappointed in the way the story unfolded. There were plenty of plausible suspects however the killer was obvious to me, as was the motive for the murders, as soon as the character (killer) was introduced. I found the resolutions of various plot points and complications unsatisfactory.
My disappointments aside, I am certain many readers and fans of cozies will find THE FOG LADIES a quick and fun read.
