In "The Staggerford Murders," residents of the Ransford Hotel "solve" the nine- year-old murder of esteemed Staggerford citizen Neddy Nichols and the disappearance of his widow, Blanche. Hassler's wry humor is in full force as this wonderful tale unfolds. In the more poignant and bittersweet"The Life and Death of Nancy Clancy's Nephew," elderly W.D. Nestor finds his loneliness dispelled by his friendship with a young Staggerford boy, but it is a sudden visit to his one hundred-year-old Aunt Nancy that provides the peace he has always been looking for.
