HEART'S EASE IN DEATH

You'll be running out of death certificates soon,"" Supt. Bill Aveyard tells Dr. Samson after the class-conscious village of Bollaston is hit by a storm and left strewn with bodies: the heart-attacked landlady who keeled over when an out-of-control truck plowed through a wall and into her parlor; the farm foreman at the Grange who was felled by a dislodged keystone while repairing the manor's mausoleum; the young couple--the rakish heir to the Grange and a pregnant village wenchette--in a storm-crumpled car. Which of the deaths were accidents and which were murder? Through round upon round of interrogations and post mortems, quietly effective and highly traditional Aveyard plods rustic paths to the unsurprising but neatly tied knot of truths.
