In what could be the beginning of a new mystery series, three good friends from Grand River, Texas, fiesty, mouthy 80 year old Millie, more reserved 65 year old Edna, and 48 year old divorced Trisha are the Silver Sleuths. They set about proving the innocence of neighbor and friend seventy something Sam Wiley who is accused of electrocuting his longtime wife Susan in the bathtub. Sam has recently sold his business but not without making one or two former employes angry. Then, Millie's house is broken into and the safe in Sam's house is emptied. The Silver Slueths follow Mary Chevaz and Tom Jones, Sam's two former disgruntled employees, and discover that Mary is wearing a valuable pair of Susan Wiley's earrings. The local Grand River police are not amused by the often dangerous actions of Millie, Edna and Trisha, but telling these determined ladies "NO" is not going to work. Can these three women find out who really murdered Susan Wiley before one or all of them is killed as they go about pretending to sell Avon or entering empty houses illegally?
"Classic Revenge" is filled with great humor as the characters talk with each other. However, it needs formatting and editing. Many incomplete sentences will need completion as this entertaining story is still in rough condition. Millie, Edna and Trish are interesting main characters as they go about their investigations, laughing at each other's foibles and reasoning about whether they are on the killer's trail. Hopefully, there will be more "Silver Sleuth" mysteries as the women are an amusing and engaging threesome.
