Having been hooked by the new show based on the series on A&E, I jumped at a chance to try out the books themselves while on vacation recently. I liked that the characters were (for once, when reading a series on which a show or movie is based) immediately recognizable, only perhaps slightly more themselves, if that makes sense — all slightly flawed, but totally likable. “Death Without Company” delves into the mystery of what at first appears to be the completely ordinary death of the resident of a local nursing home. Johnson does a good job of setting the scene and slowly feeding you the pieces of back story that lead to the solution of not one but two murders–one decades old.
