The first three cozy mysteries in a series featuring a Royal Canadian Mountie and his resourceful wife from an international-bestselling author. The beloved sleuthing couple solves a trio of murder cases in the austere beauty of Canada’s New Brunswick. Originally published under the pseudonym Alisa Craig, these three tales are a witty look at murder in a small town—“the epitome of the ‘cozy’ mystery” (Mostly Murder). A Pint of Murder: When Janet Wadman realizes her friend Agatha was murdered with a jar of tainted green beans, her discovery leads to another untimely death. Height-challenged Mountie Madoc Rhys proves more capable than he looks, and Janet is duly impressed. Murder Goes Mumming: Madoc decides to ask Janet for her hand in marriage. But when the newly engaged couple finds their Christmas plans spoiled by murder, the investigating duo once again finds they have a gift for serving justice. A Dismal Thing to Do: Janet witnesses a terrible accident on the back roads of Canada. But after dashing into a nearby barn to get help, someone thanks her by stealing her car and then trying to kill her. Or were they? Madoc arrives and together they work to stop a deadly crime wave in its tracks.

After witnessing a strange explosion, Janet becomes a murderer's next target. Janet Rhys is driving through the backwoods of Canada when she sees the truck ahead of her lose control, smash into a snow bank, and flip sideways, completely blocking the road. Springing to action, she darts into a nearby barn, searching for something to use to rescue the person trapped inside. When she hears an explosion, Janet returns to find the truck is nothing but smoking wreckage, and the driver has stolen her car. Janet takes shelter in an abandoned house, and is waiting for help to come when the truck driver's accomplices set fire to her hideout. Just before she is engulfed in flames, she leaps through a window and escapes into the snow. The killers think their witness is dead, and if Janet doesn't move quickly, they will be right. Review Quote: "Charm, wit, and Holmesian logic."- AudioFile. "A great way to visit Moscow without having to live there." - San Jose Mercury News. "The epitome of the 'cozy' mystery." - Mostly Murder. "MacLeod can be counted on for a witty, literate and charming mystery." - Publishers Weekly. Biographical note: Charlotte MacLeod (1922-2005) was an internationally bestselling author of cozy mysteries. Born in Canada, she moved to Boston as a child, and lived in New England most of her life. After graduating from college, she made a career in advertising, writing copy for the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company before moving on to Boston firm N. H. Miller & Co., where she rose to the rank of vice president. In her spare time, MacLeod wrote short stories, and in 1964 published her first novel, a children's book called "Mystery of the White Knight". In "Rest You Merry" (1978), MacLeod introduced Professor Peter Shandy, a horticulturist and amateur sleuth whose adventures she would chronicle for two decades. "The Family Vault" (1979) marked the first appearance of her other best-known characters: the husband and wife sleuthing team Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn, whom she followed until her last novel, "The Balloon Man", in 1998.

Männer sind schön! Männer denken einfach zu viel! Und sie lassen sich immer wieder einreden, Schönheit wäre eine Sache der Frauen, reine Haut, leichtfüßige Bewegungen, eine klangvolle Stimme. Walt Whitman, Begründer der modernen amerikanischen Dichtung, kannte die Wahrheit. Mit ›Der schöne Mann‹ schrieb er eine Hymne auf den männlichen Körper und einen Leitfaden, wie man seine Möglichkeiten voll ausschöpft. Das reicht von einer reinen Fleischdiät über das Rezitieren von Gedichten im Freien und sorgloses Tanzen bis zu Bare-Knuckle-Fights. ›Der schöne Mann‹ erschien 1858 in dreizehn wöchentlichen Kolumnen im ›New York Atlas‹ und war 150 Jahre lang verschollen. Mit dieser Ausgabe liegt Whitmans kurioser Ratgeber erstmals auf Deutsch vor.
