Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MURDER IS NO HAPPY FEAT.

Meg Langslow never thought that moving into a new home with her fiancée would be easy. But a Virginia basement full of arctic penguins? And a dead body? That’s just bad manners…from Meg and Michael’s perspective, at least. As for Meg’s father, he took in the penguins as a favor to the bankrupt Caerphilly Zoo, where they’re set to return just as soon as the zoo’s fundraising efforts pay off. Problem is that the zoo-keeper himself has gone missing—and only the animals know the truth about his whereabouts. Now it’s up to Meg to find out more about her DOA houseguest…before the ice melts on this very cold case.

“Andrews always leavens the mayhem with laughs. So march yourself down to the bookstore or library and check out The Penguin Who Knew Too Much.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch (Virginia)

Synopsis:

Meg Langslow plays hostess to a gaggle of penguins and investigates a puzzling murder in the latest delightful mystery from the bestselling author of "No Nest for the Wicket." Martin's Press.
