This is the 3rd entry in the consistently well-crafted series by Francine Mathews. I've read the previous two and look forward to the fourth (and sadly, last?) one. This time around, the Nantucket PD are called upon when two children discover the bones of a woman who has been missing for years, with evidence pointing to foul play. When a young college student is murdered, the cases appear to be linked to a serial killer, drawing the attention of the FBI. At the same time, a man with an obsession for stealing women's pantyhose is making the rounds, conning local women literally out of their nylons with bogus stories. What appears to be a harmless if annoying fetish turns more serious when the man starts upping his game to a more dangerous and intimate level. Lots of stuff going on and sometimes a bit hard to keep up with it all. While a few of the plot twists stretch credibility, the series remains fresh, the characters compelling (I especially enjoy how Merry's protégé, Howie, develops and becomes her partner in crime, for lack of better description) and the author does a skillful job at balancing the police procedural aspect with the other more personal relationships within and outside of the police force. And the backstory of the two children who discover the corpse at the beginning of the story developed realistically and poignantly.

Francine Mathews deserves to be much more widely read. I was given the 1st book in the Nantucket series while on a trip, Death in the Off Season, and it is now making the rounds among reading friends. They all agree and are moving onto other books in the series. I'm on the 4th and am looking forward to her most recent release. Interesting characters, a good plot, well written and a wonderful setting. She's far better than some of the better-known mystery writers.

Her books are fun...especially for those of us living in Massachusetts.

Gave this as a gift - had read it before and enjoyed it as I did all books in her series
watching to future
Francine Mathews also writes as Stephanie Barron, the author of the Jane Austen mystery series. I've never read one of those books, but they seem to be well liked. Well, I wish I could have liked Death in a Mood Indigo as much as others liked it, but I didn't. I have a stash of these really easy mystery novels on my tbr shelves, and maybe it's time to let them go. I've discovered I like my mysteries a wee bit more challenging.

Normally I don't start reading a series with book #3, but in an effort to get through my mountain of TBR books, this is what I had.

The novel begins on a Nantucket beach when Nan and Cecil Markham, ages 8 and 11 respectively, are off playing. Along comes their dog, Sachmo, with something in his mouth, which turns out to be a bone. The kids find this very cool until they dig up a skull, and realize that the bones the dog has are human. The local police are alerted, and the case is assigned to detective Meredith Folger. Checking against missing persons records, she finds out that the bones belong to a Dr. Elizabeth Osborne, who disappeared without a trace some eight years back. While she's investigating how Dr. Osborne's bones ended up on the beach, a local woman is killed and changes the complexion of the entire case.

The mystery was intriguing and the characters were okay. However, one little clue given by the author tipped me to the murderer and I have to say I was quite disappointed to be found right. When I read a mystery, I want to be pleasantly surprised as to the "who" in the "whodunit" and this was way too easy. I don't know if I'd go out of my way to find another book in this series, but if one drops into my lap I'll probably read it.
On a dreary Spring day, two lonely and disconsolate children, Nan
and Cecil Markham, are playing by themselves on a Nantucket beach when
the little girl find a human skeleton buried in the sand. The case is
assigned to police detective Meredith Folger, who almost immediately finds
herself struggling over jurisdiction. The state police and the FBI are
working a serial killer case that they feel is linked to Folger's
investigation.
..... The remains turn out to be Dr. Elizabeth Osborne, who disappeared
without a trace about eight years ago. Just before Elizabeth vanished,
she shared a torrid love affair with the also missing Ian Markham,
father of the two children. Merry looks back over the intervening eight years to see if some clues might still exist. The husband appears to be the
prime suspect in Elizabeth's murder. However, as Merry gets closer to
the truth, the FBI warns Merry to back off as they feel her case links to their
serial killer case. Still Merry continues her inquiries regardless of
the feelings of the rival departments, hoping that one of them will
solve a murder long unavenged.
...... DEATH IN A MOOD INDIGO will leave readers in a positive mood after
reading a fabulous who-done-it/police procedural. The story line is
exciting and well written, but it is the ending that will blow the
audience's mind. Merry Folger in her third outing is already one of the best distaff American police officers in fiction today. This reviewer strongly
recommends the three Folger novels as well as the author's two Jane
Austen Mystery series (written under the name Stephanie Barron). All five novels are superb.
