St. Benignus College in Erin Ohio might not be a desert island, a locked room, or an express train speeding to the Orient, but the quaint setting in Bookmarked for Murder is reminiscent of an Agatha Christie mystery, and author Dan Andriacco’s plotting holds muster with the Grand Dame. Bookmarked for Murder is Andriacco’s fifth mystery in his Jeff Cody/Sebastian McCabe series and it does not disappoint as it’s Andriacco’s best yet.
