The Sunday Philosophy Club

The Sunday Philosophy Club (Isabel Dalhousie Mysteries)This was a mystery like no other mystery that I've read. A woman witnesses a man fall to his death at the opera and takes it upon herself to find out what really happened. But she goes all wrong trying to figure this out. I've read my share of mystery novels and most people actually ask questions and follow people and do what they can to figure out if the person the suspect is who did it, but she sat around and asked philosophical questions about things that had nothing to do with anything. And you don't even know who actually pushed this guy over the balcony until the last page. As far as mysteries go, this one was pretty weak.
