Victoria Trumbull is a ninety-two year old newspaper correspondent on Martha's Vineyard. Because of her intimate knowledge of the residents, she manages to solve mysteries on the side. This is the fifth mystery in the series. Victoria is fired from her reporting job at the Island Enquirer
because of her age. This doesn't deter her--she goes to the rival newsletter and gets things moving there. Her former editor rehires her to investigate the series of fake obituaries he is receiving, all naming him as the deceased. It was fun, although some of Victoria's traits became a little annoying through repetition.
