Current review 62916 Nobody is going to that much trouble to get murdered But if you re going to murder somebody you expect to go to a lot of trouble I would Pam NorthThe Norths Meet Murder 1940 is a lovely beginning to Frances Richard Lockridge s series which features to varying degrees Pam and Jerry North as the slightly screwy yet classy amateur sleuth husband and wife team and the sharp Lieutenant later Captain Bill Weigand and his faithful often confused sidekick Detective Aloysius Mullins This first outing is a bit police procedural than later installments and we spend a great deal of time following Weigand and Mullins around as they hunt down clues and interview suspects Pam and Jerry appear at the beginning and endas well as popping up now and again throughout but this is really Weigand s bookThe story opens with Jerry returning home from work in a rather grumpy mood to find that Pam has decided that they need to throw a party And the empty apartment on the top floor of their building will be the perfect location because there was so much room and she had just thought of it She had already gone up earlier that day and checked out the space just to be sure and had cleared the idea with their landlady Mrs Buano All she needs now is for Jerry to tell her what a fine idea it is and to go upstairs with her so she explain all the important details like where they ll place the bar for instance Once he has downed enough cocktails he is persuaded to go upstairs But instead of visualizing the party arrangements and the expected guests he and Pam find an unexpected guest already lounging in the bathtub Naked And very deadThis brings the cops Lots of cops Six cars every which way Mrs North called excitedly They don t pay any attention to one way streets Seven cars and there s going to be a crowdIt also brings Lieutenant Bill Weigand and Sergeant Mullins It isn t long before the body is identified and it is discovered that the man moved within some of the same social circles as the Norths Which gives them a bit of a motive albeit tenuous Weigand will sift the clues to find those that point to the true villain of the pieceIt was a great delight to read this once again I first read it about twenty years ago or so from the library And have since gotten my very own copy When the Mystery Reporter Challenge called for a book that involved a party I decided it was time to revisit my friends the Norths The book is a lot of fun The dialogue and the descriptions are breezy and delightful Pam s apparent non seuiturs keep Jerry Weigand and Mullins on their toes This time around I was struck by how much I love Mullins and his distrust of screwy murders and even screwier witnesses I was also struck by the racism in Mullins s treatment of a Japanese servant I hadn t remembered that from the first reading I m convinced that it had a great deal to do with the fact that this book came out during World War II and I hope I m remembering correctly that there is little of it in later booksThe police procedural nature of the book is decent although the clues are not uite fair play There is an interesting alibi involved and the wrap up has a medium sized dose of female in jeopardy when Pam realizes who the murderer must be and she realizes that Pam has had a light bulb moment Overall great fun and light entertainment at it s best I originally gave this four stars This time round I m giving it and a half with a small deduction for the small amount of racismFirst posted on my blog My Reader s Block Please reuest permission before reposting ThanksPrevious mini review from my pre blogging daysI love the zany world of Mr and Mrs North These light mad cap mysteries are just the thing when you want something satisfying that won t make you think too hard five stars on the previous review

Review The Norths Meet Murder

The Norths Meet Murder Read & download ð 2 Ound a murdered man in the bathtubWith no clue not even the identity of the corpse nothing to start from but the Norths and their black cat Pete Detective Weigand began spinn. Nearly 80 years after The Norths Meet Murder was first published in 1940 this debut novel to a series introducing Jerry and Pamela North a fun version of Nick and Nora Charles still delights When the couple discover a murdered man in the apartment above theirs they obviously become drawn into the investigation headed by the sympathetic Lieutenant William Weigand I loved the mystery which I never cracked and I loved the glimpse into 1930s Greenwich Village and a sophisticated life I ll never have It s also interesting to see that the third degree was pretty standard even in the mid century Highly recommended
