"Those madcap septuagenarians from Camden-sur-Mer are at it again. Miss Sawyer is on to something good, fresh and charming" - (Atlanta Journal)...Such praise greeted the previous adventures of those intrepid not-so-over-the-hill sleuths Angela Benbow and Caledonia Wingate. Now the ladies are back in The Peanut Butter Murders, investigating the death of a new neighbor, Alexander Lightfoot, who fell or was pushed into the path of an oncoming train. At fifty the victim was a bit too young for the posh retirement community of Camden-sur-Mer, where Angela and Caledonia reside, but his fiancee, Edna Ferrier, a tad older by fifteen years, is their neighbor. Angela and Caledonia begin by interrogating the grieving Edna and her overprotective brother-in-law, and are soon disrupting the well-ordered life of their old friend Lt. Martinez of the San Diego Sheriff's office. A second murder confirms their suspicions that a killer is loose in Camden, but Angela and Caledonia find more than they bargained for when they uncover Lightfoot's criminal past and its surprising links to Camden-sur-Mer.

Flap copy

The dead man was a mere fifty, too young to have much in common with the well-heeled oldsters at the beautiful Camden-sur-Mer retirement community in southern California. His death looks like an accident, but when those ever-alert senior sleuths Angela Benbow and Caledonia Wingate discover that he was courting one of their neighbors, they can't help hoping they'll luck into a nice murder investigation.
A second murder confirms their suspicions that a dangerous killer is on the loose. But between Angela's shameless curiousity and Caledonia's blitzkrieg, a mere murderer hasn't a chance. Unless he can eliminate them, too. . . .
