Dear Clara seems too good to be true. When she ends up with a knife in her back, it is up to Detective Trant to solve the crime. He has eight suspects, possibly nine, but no motive and no clues.

It was okay, nothing I would seek out to read, but I would read it if I saw it on a shelf at a hotel and I had nothing else to read. Is that damning with faint praise? The author is overly fond of the word "sardonic." None of the characters were very interesting. Not even the detective. In fact, I would say that the author went out of the way to make him not unique. ( )
