Publisher's Summary

A holiday party takes on a sinister aspect when the colourful assortment of guests discovers there is a killer in their midst. The owner of the substantial estate, that old Scrooge Nathaniel Herriard, is found stabbed in the back. While the delicate matter of inheritance could be the key to this crime, the real conundrum is how any of the suspects could have entered a locked room to commit the foul deed.
For Inspector Hemingway of Scotland Yard, the investigation is complicated by the fact that every guest is hiding something, throwing all of their testimonies into question and casting suspicion far and wide.
This clever and daring crime will mystify listeners, although the answer is in plain sight the whole time.

Meet the ultimate in 'Locked Door' murder

I used to read Georgette Heyer's mysteries when I was a child. So I'd obviously read this one before, but this was like it was the 1st time. The characters were superbly portrayed by the narrator & all were extremely well written! A beautiful novel for a cosy 'fireside' read, with a twist that you really never see coming.

I'm off to purchase the next one. Well worth the investment.
