I recently finished this novel by Selma Eichler, one of the Desiree Shapiro Mysteries. It was a good book, though I found it somewhat sad because it concerns the death of a nine year old girl.
In this mystery, Catherine Corwin was a very sickly child. She is found dead in the library of her home, and everyone believes it to be a death caused by her illness. Everyone, that is, except her grandmother, Evelyn, who hires private investigator Desiree Shapiro to look into the child's death and prove that it was murder. At first, when Desiree gets some facts together, she also believes that the child's death was caused by her illness. But as she does more investigating, Desiree turns up some interesting facts that point to murder. But who would want to kill this poor, sick child, and why?
I found Murder Can Stunt Your Growth to be another interesting book by Selma Eichler. I have to admit, though, that the ending was different from what I had been expecting, and I found it to be a little disturbing. All in all, though, I found this to be an interesting book, from first page to last.
