Manna from Hades

Carola Dunn: Manna from Hades (UK 2013)

From the Publisher:
The first in a charming cosy crime series set in 1960's Cornwall featuring amateur sleuth and charity shop worker, Eleanor Trewynn and her westie Teazle. From the author of the bestselling Daisy Darlymple series.

Eleanor Trewynn, recently widowed, returns home from years of working overseas to retire to the cozy village of Port Maybn in Cornwall, England. Even in retirement though, she continues her charity work, leasing out the first floor of her house to a charity shop.

One morning as she opens the shop, she finds both a particularly valuable donation and a corpse stuffed into the storeroom. The donation is linked to a violent robbery in London but the corpse looks nothing like the robbers being sought by the police. With the help of her niece, Detective Sergeant Megan Pencarrow, and, begrudgingly, Detective Inspector Scumble, Eleanor is determined to unscramble this confounding case of daring theft, double cross, and murder most foul.

Carola Dunn: Manna from Hades. A Cornish Mystery. Constable & Robinson Crime, ISBN: 9781780336480 (June, 2013), 305 p., £7.99.

Manna from Hades

Carola Dunn: Manna from Hades (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
Eleanor Trewynn is a widow of some years living in Port Mabyn, a small fishing village in Cornwall, England. In her younger days, she traveled the exotic parts of the world with her husband. These days, she's retired and founded the local charity shop. Her niece, Megan Pencarrow, transferred nearby, and was recently promoted to the rank of Detective Sargent. Perhaps the only downside is that she is now working for a DI who doesn't approve of women on the police force and who really doesn't much approve of Megan's aunt Eleanor, as she is something of a thorn in his rather substantial side.

All of these factors collide when, the day after collecting donations, Eleanor and the vicar's wife find the dead body of a longhaired, scruffy-looking youth hidden in the stockroom of the charity shop. Then they discover that some donated jewelry thought to be fake is actually very real, very expensive, and the haul from a violent robbery in London. Making matters more complex, the corpse found in the storeroom is apparently not one of the robbers. Manna from Hades is a confounding case of daring theft, doublecross, and a wily older woman confronted by a case of murder most foul.

Carola Dunn: Manna from Hades. A Cornish Mystery. St. Martin's Press, ISBN: 9780312379452 (March, 2009), 294 p., $24.95.
