The Mind of Mr. Mosley is a cozy, funny mystery. Farcical, even. Inspector Mosley is a placid but determined man, who quietly carries on his investigation with absolutely no regard for police procedures, to the consternation of his superior officers.

"If Mosley had put pen to paper about a routine visit, it would have meant that he was covering his flanks in preparation for something even more than usually devious, something that could only herald trouble in the remote future."

Mosley has reservations about a suicide in Upper Crudshaw. He sets things into motion before going on a two-week vacation, and while he's gone all hell breaks loose. Upon his return, he pulls all the strings together, gets everything straightened out, and sits cozily at home while the truly ridiculous climax plays out.

This was a fun, rather silly book, although it got pretty complicated at times. The title is deceptive, because there is very little insight into the workings of Mosley's mind. ( )
