Final body count = 8

Got the hots for your sister-in-law? Wanna be king? Just bump off your brother and marry his wife! Then your nephew will be your stepson, but you will call him "cousin." Very soon, you and everyone around you will be dead, and some Norwegian dude will plop his dimply butt in your throne.

Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" Thanks, Julie! Sometimes it's fun to do a lighthearted "review" of a book that really doesn't need reviewing.

(I must add that I have no personal knowledge of whether Norwegians actually have dimply butts or not.)

Thank you, Kay! I think it would make a good book jacket blurb. ;-)
