I am chuckling over the references to old cases - Murder on the Links, the A.B.C. Murders. Right now I am most reminded of And Then There Were None, for some reason.
I agree with OB - Judith is pretty awful.
“That’s wicked—wicked. An abuse of power. It shouldn’t be allowed. Old people, sick people, they shouldn’t have the power to hold up the lives of the young and strong. To keep them tied down, fretting, wasting their power and energy that could be used—that’s needed. It’s just selfishness.”
“The old,” I said drily, “have not got a monopoly of that quality."
