Publisher's Summary

When Ernest Fletcher is found bludgeoned to death in his study, everyone is shocked and mystified: Ernest was well liked and respected, so who would have a motive for killing him?
Enter Superintendent Hannasyde who, with consummate skill, begins to uncover the complexities of Fletcher's life. It seems the real Fletcher was far from the gentleman he pretended to be. There is, in fact, no shortage of people who wanted him dead. Then, a second murder is committed, giving a grotesque twist to a very unusual case, and Hannasyde realises he's up against a killer on a mission.


What the Critics Say

"Sharp, clear and witty." ( The New Yorker)
"Ranks alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey, and Allingham." ( San Francisco Chronicle)
"Miss Heyer's characters act and speak with an ease and conviction that is refreshing as it is rare in the ordinary mystery novel." ( The Times Literary Supplement)

Georgette Heyer murder stories.

The stories will always be top class vintage murder mysteries but it would have been better if they were read by a native English speaker who understood idioms and how to pronounce e.g "sal volatile" and the different pronunciations of "dilatory". Little things like this are exceedingly irritating!

A good, old fashioned story witty and entertaining with eccentric characters totally ruined by appalling reader.
