Murder at the Gardner : A Novel of Suspense: A Homer Kelly Mystery (Penguin Crime Monthly). Like most Langton books, this isn't a conventional mystery - you know very early on who the killer is - the only suspense (and it's actually suspenseful) is who is going to be the next victim and how and when the killer will be caught. The setting is Cambridge, Massachusetts - Harvard to be exact. The Revels to celebrate the Winter Solstice (very Christmassy, of course) are being rehearsed.

Reviews about Murder at the Gardner: A Novel of Suspense (7):
This is the seventh Homer Kelly mystery by the prolific Jane Langton and a real delight. It was first published in 1988, 24 years after the first in the series and 17 years since the last (in 2005). She is now in her nineties and it would seem has given us all she has to write about Homer and his wife. I have nearly all of the series and have read most to date. For fanciful literary stylishness and sheer exuberance it certainly ranks high among these books by her but also among all contemporary writers in the genre. True she lets us know early on, who dun it, and provides us with a fantasy denouement; however, I for one, was so pleased with the style and setting, with the art and the commentary, with the characters and the language, that I took these abuses of the detectival form in stride and allowed her to have her way with me. From the existing Amazon reviews, I can see that there are some who found what I liked to be tedious or simply poor composition, so the potential reader will have to choose among virtues in making a buying decision. I was happy to take this little tour of the Gardner with one of our now senior writers.
This is the second time "round" for my reading the Homer Kelly series by Jane Langton. I particularly enjoy the settings of most of these mysteries -- in New England -- my home until 25 years ago. I also like the drawings accompanying the stories, thereby expanding the inner vision of the scene with a complementary outer vision. I love Home Kelly and his wife, a typical married couple, and an example at times for other married couples with all their flaws as well as good points. I intend to reread each one of these mysteries in the future.
The narrative about the fine art in the Gardner museum was informative and interesting. Homer Kelly, the main character is charmingly drawn.
I thought it might be interesting to read a book that's set in Boston, where I live. I read 11 chapters, waiting for something to happen, but it's full of description of the characters, the museum, the art. When I read a mystery, I want action, not descriptions for chapter after chapter after chapter, which I find boring. I pushed myself to continue, thinking that something has to happen soon, but it still hasn't and I give up. It's far from a sitting on the edge of the chair, can't put it down, page turner. It put me to sleep. There's better mysteries about the Gardner.
I am enjoying Jane Langton's Kelly Mysteries having roots in Boston visiting there since childhood. The characers are quirky and fun and story line unpredictable. Just fun reading.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot was well developed and the characters very unusual and intriguing.
Fun book with a lot of thought and great twists
I liked the setting, but thought the conception of characters and construction of the story was rather obvious and elementary.
