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.
"We had better start ranking Heyer alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham." (
San Francisco Chronicle)
"A writer of great wit and style." ( The Daily Telegraph)
"Georgette Heyer is second to none." ( The Sunday Times)

I read and enjoyed these stories many years ago and so looked forward to listening to them, however, the narration is so bad I could not listen to the end. I believe they are produced in Australia and it is hard to imagine that the producers could not find there an actor capable of giving voice to characters with recognisable English accents or capable of speaking in a less ponderous and monotone way.
reading was bad
Reading was bad so could not get into the story
Maybe I used to like the books
Maybe it was the voice
Nothing more to say
