VACATION MAN by Frank Scully gets LADYBUGGED
Mr. Scully knows how to write mysteries...and VACATION MAN is one of his best!
I must admit this is not my FIRST exposure to the writing brilliance of Frank Scully's mysteries...and I also must admit each one is a delight filled journey leading to the culmination of the mystery.
HOWEVER...in this tale we know almost from the beginning "who-dunnit"...much in the way we always knew in the Columbo TV series. Like Columbo, this book is about how to bring the "who-dunnit" to justice.
VACATION MAN refers to the career focus of Jack Decker, our down-on-his-luck hero who gets hired by the local folk to fill in for vacationing staff...hence the title.
I bow to the mastery of Frank Scully
VACATION MAN is a winner and I happily award it
