Accident (The Charlotte Smart Mystery Series)
by Stan Charnofsky

The mystery offers the reader plenty of twists and turns and doesn’t quite end up where the original investigation might seem to be headed. It is Christie-like with Charlotte’s big reveal and explanations at the end.
~I Read What You Write!

In “ACCIDENT” Stan Charnofsky has written a complex, convoluted mystery that has a ton of suspects who dance into and out of the limelight as the elderly Ms. Charolette Smart, crime-solver extraordinaire . . .

Charlotte returns to solve another case in the second installment of the Charlotte Smart Mystery Series.

Greg Smart, Charlotte’s brother, has flown in from California for his big sister Charlotte’s 70th birthday. Charlotte, the previous year, solved a murder when Greg visited her at her retirement village.


The police officer who took a shine to her during the prior case has just asked Charlotte to take a look at a baffling hit and run “accident” that has left one victim dead. Charlotte weeps to discover that the victim is a child, and the second victim, the child’s older sister, is injured. Charlotte agrees to help immediately, and as soon as the two meet the child bonds with Charlotte who takes her under her wing. Charlotte will not let this child be hurt again. Meanwhile Greg continues to have an unexpectedly interesting love life while he and Charlotte work together to help to piece the child’s life and family back together by bringing a murderer to justice.

About Stan Charnofsky 

Stan is a wonderful man. He just turned 90, and he just retired from teaching at Cal State Northridge (CSUN), and was their oldest and longest-serving faculty ever. He taught marriage and family counseling, and was once, briefly, a Yankee, and was also, for about 10 years, the baseball coach at CSUN. He is a lovely man with many students indebted to him. He also wears butterflies. Many decades ago students started gifting him with butterfly pins; he has hundreds, and every day he pins one on. I know he is older but he is still writing and is a vital and lovely person.
