|Eileen Arnow-Lewine, She’s Fallen Down Dead, 2009|
The book, as the title implies, begins with a woman who has been found dead at the base of the stairs. Playing upon typical investigation plots, a detective surveys the scene and the woman’s belongings, trying to uncover the mystery to her death. The book also features bold, graphic, black and white illustrations in line with the dramatic storyline. However, the author seems to apply a bit of a tongue-in-cheek interpretation to the mystery, as the woman’s spirit provides a wry commentary on the detective’s ongoing investigation.
