Gertrude, Gumshoe: Slam Is Murder

(1 customer review)


There just isn’t enough crime in Mattawooptock, so Gertrude has to convince Calvin to go to the big city – Portland, where she will go undercover as the newest slam poet on the scene. But have any actual crimes been committed, or is this just Gertrude’s wild imagination at work?

  1. Laura

    This is the fourth book in the Gertrude Gumshoe series. It is a standalone book – however, the joy in this series comes from the growth of Gertrude’s character and her interactions with others. I highly recommend you start with the first book in this series “Introducing Gertrude Gumshoe.”

    I just can’t get enough of feisty Gertrude. Her antics make me laugh out loud – getting her license; reciting poetry [one about her cat and the detective]; and of course, her relationship with Calvin. I love when she questions people and they ask who she is, her only response is “I’m Gertrude,” as if she is known the world over and only has a first name like Cher or Adelle or Madonna. I absolutely enjoy this series and recommend it highly for anyone who wants a good laugh.

    The narrator, Darlene Allen, is the same narrator for the entire series. She does a very good job narrating and embodies the quirkiness of Gertrude’s character.
