Summary
A collection of nine madcap stories following the wayfaring translator and amateur sleuth Cassandra Reilly around the globe in search of her next great mystery Lesbian translator and part-time detective Cassandra Reilly has two thrilling investigations under her belt: the case of a missing person in Barcelona and that of a dead spa-owner in Transylvania. In this humorous and engrossing collection, Cassandra is hard at work in some of the world's most picturesque locales, including Maui, the English moors, and the Icelandic coast. Among the vast assortment of misdeeds she's called upon to investigate-most of which take place within the literary world-Cassandra finds ample opportunity to exercise her trademark wit and eye for irony. From "Murder at the International Feminist Book Fair," in which the exploits of a mudslinging women's magazine lead to a death on the floor of the convention, to "An Expatriate Death," about a local Mexican writer who appropriates Cassandra's identity for a character in his novel-and then promptly kills off the character-The Death of a Much-Travelled Woman is another showcase of the intrepid translator's zest not only for globetrotting, but for wandering smack into the middle of the most unusual crimes. The Death of a Much-Travelled Woman is the third book in the Cassandra Reilly Mystery series, which begins with Gaud ̕Afternoon and Trouble in Transylvania, and concludes with The Case of the Orphaned Bassoonists
