KIRKUS REVIEW

Biggie And The Meddlesome Mailman ($22.95; Nov.; 240 pp.; 0-312-20880-4): Who better than to serve as the latest homicide victim in the rapidly emptying hamlet of Job’s Crossing, Texas, than Luther Abernathy, who never skipped a day on his mail route because of all the secrets he might pass up by not opening the mail he delivered? And who better to get to the bottom of the ensuing down-home mystery, broadly jocose without a speck of subtlety, than that Most Important Personage, J.R. Wooten’s formidable grandmother Biggie—even if you end up wondering why some nosey gossips have to die while others get to return for their fourth starring role (Biggie and the Fricasseed Fat Man, 1998, etc.)?
