Death by Karma
When Charles Bentley, retired English professor and sometime amateur sleuth, marries the chief of police in the Town of Opalsville in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, he expects to support her in sickness and in health. However, he does not anticipate having to discover who killed one of her officers, but this turns out to be the case, despite the fact that Charles is in the midst of a career change to becoming a mystery novelist. As usual, Charles is surrounded by strong, attractive, and somewhat frightening women who offer suggestions on how he should behave. Not deterred by criticism or adversity, Charles perseveres in discovering who attempted to make sure that everything that goes around comes around.
