Review by Job Patstone

In C.F. Carter‘s first book, Death of a Dummy, we are drawn into a story of murder and intrigue. Paul Wainscott, newly arrived in Québec City from Vancouver, quickly makes friends with some questionable characters. Paul has come into possession of an old building in Vieux-Québec and inadvertently meets up with some of the locals, two of whom end up dead before he has a chance to get to know them.

With the help of a woman named Dottie, who resides in his newly purchased building, Paul discovers an old wax museum in the basement which he decides to reopen in order to make some extra money. Dottie and Paul make new costumes for the old wax figures and restore the old museum. At the same time, they discover a clue which could perhaps explain why two of Paul’s new friends were murdered within days of each other.

It turns out one of the murder victims, an antique dealer, had made some strange and illegal purchases that raise questions about why someone may have wanted to kill him. With a million-dollar artifact coming into play, Paul himself ends up solving the mystery, much to the surprise of the local police.

This book is presented as the first in a series, and we are eagerly awaiting the next Wax Museum Mystery.
