Detection Unlimited: Country House Mysteries Series, Book 12
"Miss Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me... I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word 'Go'. " -Dorothy L. Sayers
Slumped on a seat under an oak tree is old Sampson Warrenby, with a bullet through his head.
Everybody in the village is ready to tell Chief Inspector Hemingway who did it. Could the murderer have been the dead man's niece? Or perhaps it was the other town solicitor? The couple at the farm had a guilty secret-what was it? And why is it someone else actually wants to be the prime suspect?
Add to this the fact that Warrenby was blackmailing someone, and Hemingway has his work cut out for him.
"Georgette Heyer is second to none in her ability to make detective stories entertaining." -Sunday Times
Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty books, including Regency romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. Her barrister husband, Ronald Rougier, provided many of the plots for her detective novels, which are classic English country house mysteries reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, inventive plots, and sparkling characterization.
