And Then There Were Three
Weasel Words by Dale E Lehman is a light-hearted fun contemporary crime story that made me chuckle.
The novel revolves around a husband and wife team who pilfer objects sometimes just for fun – and return them. At other times they are for hire and financial gain. One member of a feuding family hires them to steal a well-guarded family treasure. The results are amusing as they face set back after set back.
The main protagonists are devoted to each other. The same can not be said of other elderly characters.
The characters are all well drawn. The reader cannot help but like the lead team who in spite of their ‘profession’ do have kind hearts.
Weasel Words is a clean, fun crime caper that would translate well into a movie. It was an amusing read that brightened an otherwise gloomy day.
Dale E Lehman has a fertile imagination and well executed plots. I love all his stories.
I received a free copy of the story from the author. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
