The Body in the Bed by Jerold Last


The newest entry in the South American mystery series brings Roger and Suzanne back to Montevideo to attend a festive dinner honoring their friend's promotion to police captain. There's a surprise guest waiting for them when they get to their hotel room. Roger and Suzanne are the lead suspects in a murder, their allies on the police forces of Uruguay and Paraguay may be the targets of a conspiracy, and nobody can be trusted. This fast paced, action filled, novella should satisfy readers of the previous books in the series as we renew acquaintances with old friends and enemies, and say farewell to one of them. Readers new to the series can enjoy this book as a stand-alone introduction to the region and to the series characters.

Tich's Review:

I received The Body in the Bed by the author for an honest review.  This is a short read, a print length of about 68 pages.  The reader doesn't have to read the past Mystery novels written about Roger and Suzanne to read this one.  Though I fully recommend you read those too if this one sparks your interest.

Roger and Suzanne head back to Montevideo to celebrate their friend's promotion in the police force.  When they arrive they find a body in the bed.  Seems like every time they visit this country there's a new mystery to solve.

I cannot wait to start reading the other novels by Jerold Last.  Two thumbs up for The Body in the Bed!
