    One thought on “The Body in the Alpaca Pasture”

    1. Roger and Suzanne travel to the mountains of Argentina, for a real vacation this time no murder cases, just fun as tourists Their plans don t last long as, wouldn t you know it, there s a case which the local police just can t solve on their own.The characters of Roger and Suzanne are well enough developed, in an odd way perhaps too much so We get to watch them eat a pleasant dinner and make plans about their trip, so much so that we re well into the book before we get a hint of the case.The boo [...]

    2. I really enjoyed both the murder investigation and learning about Argentina and Argentine alpaca breeding The investigation was very well done and had lots of info on cultural differences in law enforcement as well as detailed opportunities for learning about alpaca husbandry and details about a particular firearm and its modification I was totally absorbed by the opportunities for learning and the plot twists Caveat I am a knitting addict as well as addicted to Andrea Camilleri and his ilk.
