Publisher's Summary

Young, overworked medical intern Sarah James has no time for sleuthing. Her elderly neighbors, the spunky Fog Ladies, have nothing but time.

When, one by one, old ladies die in their elegant apartment building in San Francisco, Sarah assumes the deaths are the natural consequence of growing old. The Fog Ladies assume murder.  

Mrs. Bridge falls off a stool cleaning bugs out of her kitchen light. Mrs. Talwin slips on bubbles in the bathtub and drowns. Suddenly, the Pacific Heights building is turning over tenants faster than the fog rolls in on a cool San Francisco evening.

Sarah resists the Fog Ladies' perseverations. But when one of them falls down the stairs and tells Sarah she was pushed, even Sarah believes evil lurks in their building.

Can they find the killer before they fall victim themselves?

My Thoughts…

Audiobook Review…  This is the first book that I have listened to Robin LaRee Berry has narrated.   I love finding a new narrator and look forward to listening to more of her work.    Robin was able to take the story that Susan McCormick wrote and bring it to life.   She took a story that I did not know and pulled me right into it.    I could hear the emotions that the characters felt while understanding why they were feeling that way as I listened to the story.  

Book Review…   This is a mystery, a murder mystery actually.   Yet, it had a different feel that others I have read.   The thriller part of it was more relaxed, less electrifying, less scary.    I felt like because most of the characters were “old” that I struggled to connect as much as I would have.   The Fog Ladies was just a story to me, I did not become invested in the outcome although I was curious as to when they would figure out who was killing the tenants. 


I did not read The Fog Ladies, I listened to it in audiobook form.   Maybe because I could hear the emotions, I did find myself taking extra time to listen to one more chapter, a few more minutes.   The plot was easy to follow and liked how easy the story was to follow.
