Description

Tanaka's book will serve as an attractive introduction to a popular topic.

Tanaka's book will serve as an attractive introduction to a popular topic. The doomed voyage of the Titanic holds a mysterious fascination for children and adults, whether the story is fact or fiction. When my five-year old son became obsessed with the Titanic I was a bit worried, because of the morbidity of the subject mainly -we tend to forget that about 1500 people died in this historic incident. So I was very pleased to see that there are actually books on the subject written with children in mind - and this one is very good.

I love reading the "Murder, She Wrote" books. I feel as if I am seeing a new episode of the much loved TV series!

"A Slaying In Savannah" was not a disappointment. Jessica receives a phone call from a lawyer requesting that she come to Savannah to hear the reading of the will of her old friend, Tillie. Turns out, Tillie is leaving Jessica a million dollars to be given to a charity they started together years ago! The catch? To get the million dollars Jessica must solve a murder that happened 40 years ago, within 30 days of the reading of the will! A challenge to be sure, things are even more complicated by angry relatives, so-called friends, and a couple who live in the guest house who believe the mansion is haunted.

When my five-year old son became obsessed with the Titanic I was a bit worried, because of the morbidity of the subject mainly -we tend to forget that about 1500 people died in this historic incident. So I was very pleased to see that there are actually books on the subject written with children in mind - and this one is very good. It's written from the view points of two young men who were actually on the Titanic and survived - a young man from First Class named Jack Thayer, and Harold Bride, one of the ship's wireless operators and a true hero. Not too scary, full of fascinating details about the ship and an enjoyable read for grown-ups, too! Highly recommended.

Jessica Fletcher never disappoints! The stories are not gory - I call them light murder mysteries! Well told, easy to read, Donald Bain, writes them well. If you pay attention and read between the lines, you can figure out parts of the mystery, while learning information about a new topic, place or set of human emotions.
Very enjoyable while not being horribly scary or frightening!

This is an outstanding book. There were a lot of suspects to choose from. Until at the very end when the real killer was identified.

I have recently become a fan of the "Murder she wrote" "Jessica Fletcher" TV series, and thought I would try the book. Although well-written, the story was a bit tedious with long descriptions. I prefer the more succinct format of the TV show.

Enjoyed this book as ot was based in Savannah. It's my favorite Southern city and the characters are so uniquely like those who live there. Good job, Jessica.

I'm currently enjoying this audio book. It mirrors the TV series and has interesting characters. The only flaw is that some of the characters have voices and accents that are hard to understand, especially when listening in a car.
I enjoyed reading the book I always loved the tv show.It's a good book for some quick light reading,but after reading some mysteries of other authors these do not have the best writing
