Summary

There's a brutal murder in the small Welsh village of Gilfach. The police are clueless. With no motive and no real suspect, the investigation soon grinds to a halt. Enter Mary Anne Smith, otherwise known as Granny Smith, the 71-years-young, pipe-smoking, heavy metal-loving, chaos-causing amateur sleuth with a difference.
Granny has a talent for mayhem, and soon those talents are put to good use as our intrepid pensioner starts the unravel the case, which finds her provoking Chief Inspector Miskin as she comes up against a full scale police investigation, proving that you're never too old to make a nuisance of yourself and that 71 is actually the new 21.
Murder's never been so much fun.

A Welsh woman won't be stopped!

I knew from the first few minutes that I was going to enjoy this audiobook and I was right. The dry (yet sassy) humour was spot on and the narration was perfectly matched to the tone of the story. Highly recommended!

Granny Smith

What did you love best about Granny Smith Investigates?

Granny follows in that long tradition of amateur detectives .Though an older woman, she is as different from the Christie character as one could be. Miss Marple was a prim and proper lady of her time and Granny is a pipe smoking, She does the grandmother things: baking cookies for sales and tending to her grandchildren.

Pipe Smoking, Metalhead Granny to the Rescue

This book is definitely not your typical mystery. First, Granny Smith, age 71 on the outside only, is not your prim and proper female detective like Miss Marple or Jessica Fletcher. Second, you do not typically giggle quite so much during most mysteries.

Many Kudos to G. M. Dobbs. You make the reader feel like they are an active part of the story that includes entertaining characters and the joys of small town living where everyone knows most of what everyone else is up to.

Well narrated by Fiona Thraille with well thought out and enjoyable character voices and excellent inflections and characterizations.

I would definitely read the next adventure of Granny Smith Investigates.
