Dorothy Tell wrote about POPPY DILLWORTH, a cranky 65-year-old retiree from the Dallas Police Department who decides to become a private detective instead of committing suicide.
She made her debut in the author’s first book, a romance, Wilderness Trek (1990), which was ostensibly a story of six women on a camping trip, but Poppy pretty much stole the show, and soon returned in a couple of murder mysteries, Murder at Red Rook Ranch (1990) and The Hallelujah Murders (1992). All have drawn praise for their sympathetic but humorous take on aging.
