Publisher's Summary

It's no ordinary morning at the Poplars – the master is found dead in his bed, and it seems his high blood pressure was not the cause. When an autopsy reveals a sinister poison, it's up to the quietly resourceful Inspector Hannasyde to catch the murderer in time to spare the next victim. But every single member of the quarrelsome Matthews family has a motive and none, of course, has an alibi.

Georgette Heyer's mysteries - fabulous and fun

Any additional comments?

I have heard all Miss Heyer's mysteries in the past, usually read by Clifford Norgate who does a wonderful job in drawing out the humour in her stories, so it was with some trepidation that I downloaded this version from Bolinda, read by Ulli Birve. However after a slightly slow start she got well into the part and my enjoyment of this old favourite was untarnished.

Great novels - Narration slightly disappointing

All Georgette Heyer detective Novels are an excellent easy read in an old world setting - amusingly written and highly enjoyable. The reader has an excellent voice but at times speaks so slowly you are almost listening to it a word at a time - like someone reading out slowly and clearly an unfamiliar statement with no intonation at all and then alternating with somewhat strange characterisation and pronunciation. I continued as I like the stories so much - but it is sometimes distracting and spoils the story a bit. I will possibly continue with the rest of the stories - so I guess not terrible - but could definitely be read with a lot more emphasis on character and expression and a bit of enthusiasm.
