Every English mansion has a locked room, and Grinton Hall is no exception. The library has hidden doors and passages - and a corpse. But when the corpse goes missing, Sir John Appleby and Charles Honeybath have an even more perplexing case on their hands.
Just how did it disappear when the doors and windows were securely locked?
A bevy of helpful houseguests offer endless assistance, but the two detectives suspect that they are concealing vital information. Could the treasures on the library shelves be so valuable that someone would murder for them?

A good classic detective mystery
This is a lovely mystery set in an english country house during a house party. It combines this already classic murder setting with a body in the library, which vanishes before the police arrive. The retired detective, the actual police, Honeybath the artist and all the personalities of the house guests could lead to one big confusing mess but they don't. I'd definitely recommend it to someone who liked classic english mysteries.
Near the beginning you have people's reaction to Honeybath's tale of discovering a body, followed by the body vanishing and the various reactions to it. This was written very well.
It is a bit long for that, but in between bouts of listening I did think about the story and wonder what was coming next.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes classic british mysteries.
