Mr Floods Last Resort: Jess Kidd
This is a murder mystery which is cleverly crafted where you initially don't know it's a murder mystery. Thumbs up to that! Maude is a rather cantankerous if not perfectly human caregiver who has a range of thoughts bouncing around at any minute. She see saints after the disappearance of her sister and starts working for an old man, Cathal in whom she finds a kindred spirit. Both have suffered tragedy and have secrets to keep and share similar dispositions. Cathal's wife died of suspicious circumstances and his daughter mysteriously disappeared, Maude wants to uncover the truth, more for her own curiosity than Cathal, who believes the past should remain in the past. After nearly being murdered twice, Maude discovers Cathal's son has been at the heart of the murders and his sister is buried in the well.
