The Body in the Volvo

The Body in the Volvo

(1987)
A novel by

 
Professor Charles Carstairs has just taken over his Uncle Cosmo's auto-repair shop when a body is discovered in the trunk of a car on the premises. As Charles deals with disgruntled customers, cranky mechanics, and unpaid bills, he also has to convince the cops that he didn't kill Dr. Bateman, the department head who just refused his tenure.

"It gets complicated, but Ms. Beck neatly brings everything together. The story is imaginative, the presentation lighthearted, the characters believable." - New York Times Book Review

"Displays a fine-tuned eye and ear and a benignly critical edge." - Publisher's Weekly
