McMANSIONS (PI-Connecticut-Cont) – VG
Scott, Justin – 4th in series
Poisoned Pen Press, 2006- US Hardcover – ISBN 1-59058-063X
*** Ben Abbot is a realtor and private investigator in Newbury, Connecticut, a town whose history dates back to the Colonies. Billy Tiller was a developer and the nightmare of every preservationist. His only concern was making as much money as possible in any way he could and the number of those who hated him is impressive. Billy’s body was found crushed under a D4 Bulldoze
I'm not a big fan of mysteries in general, but the Ben Abbott series by Justin Scott is clearly, lovingly, set in my hometown of Newtown, CT. It's a treat spotting details that only other Newtowners would know. In this book, my favorite was the lady who dresses as a Polish peasant.
I enjoyed reading this and solving the mystery as I went along.
Fun mystery with reasonable plot. Some of the details seemed off.
