Winston Wong had a typo in his ad that made him a seniors sleuth rather than a Senior Sleuth. So, naturally, the first client that walked in was a rickety old lady, who just wanted to know who killed Teddy. But since the old lady is senile and confused, that granddaughter wanted Wong to “investigate” the case and help granny forget about it and move on. I liked the idea of tricking the old lady—it’s what you have to do sometimes (out of necessity and for fun, of course.) Needless to say, this was Wong’s first case and he needed the paycheck, so why not?
Overall, this was witty and easy-to-read. Some of the old people were not that interesting, like the Jazz Man. I don’t know, the idea of an old senior case sounded interesting, but, in reality, it really wasn’t. Yes, Winston Wong had that funny, crotchety “Jack Lemon” persona, but the mystery was kind of slow (like old people.)
This was an okay read.
My rating: 3 stars
