Carola Dunn's Manna from Hades is a confounding Cornish case of daring theft, doublecross, and a wily older woman confronted by a case of murder most foul. The majority of this book is a journal of the daily life of a Cornish retiree and her merry gang. The individual characters are not bad, but they didn’t do much to entertain me. Early on, I seriously considered tossing this book and moving on to another, but I held on in the hope that Dunn’s book would turn around somewhere and become as awesome as her DD series.

"Welcome to Cornwall, beautiful land of Cornish pasties, cream teas, and murder."―Kirkus Reviews

Eleanor Trewynn, recently widowed, returns home from years of working overseas to retire to the cozy village of Port Maybn in Cornwall, England. Even in retirement though, she continues her charity work, leasing out the first floor of her house to a charity shop. One morning as she opens the shop, she finds both a particularly valuable donation and a corpse stuffed into the storeroom. The donation is linked to a violent robbery in London but the corpse looks nothing like the robbers being sought by the police. With the help of her niece, Detective Sergeant Megan Pencarrow, and, begrudgingly, Detective Inspector Scumble, Eleanor is determined to unscramble this confounding case of daring theft, double cross, and murder most foul.

Set in rural Cornwall, this fine mystery starts innocently enough: Eleanor and her dog go for a walk after a long day collecting donations for a charity which she supports. When they return to town, some neighbors help her unload her car into their small shop. As she unpacks, she notices a container of paste jewelry, puts it in the safe, and retires for the night. When the morning crew arrives, she goes down to show them the new donations, only to discover a dead body. So the police are called and everyone becomes involved in the search for answers.
This is the first book in this series and gets it off to a great start. The two main characters (Eleanor, a retired philanthropist, and her niece, Megan--a detective sergeant) are richly described. The supporting cast is also well portrayed--an interesting group of village residents. The plot is not a wild adventure, but moves on apace: I always wanted to keep reading. This is an enjoyable and interesting novel: grab it and enjoy!

I'm sure this novel wouldn't have been published had an unknown author written it. It has a number of problems.
1 - Eleanor, the main character ALWAYS loses her keys, but NEVER loses anything else, like her dog's leash for example. Anyone losing their keys that often would either buy or be given a highly-visible attachment to the key chain. She also can't seem to grasp that she does NOT get to decide what is or isn't relevant to tell the police about.
2 - The book mixes slang, clothing styles, etc that didn't coexist in the real 1960s or 1970s.
3 - Perhaps this one can be considered a SPOILER. Eleanor suddenly is needed for an important task related to her past life, but the people asking for her help just happened to run into her, they hadn't bothered to look her up for this crucial role. Nor did the fact that Eleanor was retired affect them.

The key to this mystery is keys. Cornish mystery has a lot of weather and driving on the wrong side of the road and pasties. Aunt Nell must be related to Aunt Jane Marple.

All of Carola Dunn's Cornish mysteries are a treat to read, and for icing on the cake, Wanda McCaddon reads the audio version of this one superbly. Even after reading the book several times, McCaddon's performance makes it a new and exciting experience. I do hope she'll narrate the rest in this delightful series.

Really enjoyed the trip down memory lane prior to social media, cell phones and today's ever present noise. The heroine is lovely and refined. The police are intelligent and proactive.

This is book one of the lovely Cornish mysteries written by Carola Dunn. Nice addition for those looking for a gentle escape to the English countryside while becoming attached to these likeable characters and an engaging murder plot! I love this series and book two ( A Colourful Death) is also a great read for us cozy mystery lovers! Enjoy!!

I enjoyed reading about a time period in England that I was unfamiliar with prior to starting this series. I have enjoyed the first two and half so far.
A good read to pass away the winter. Not a substantial read and nothing like her Daisy Dalrimple novels.
