A classic mystery at Christmas. Perfect for fans of Mystery in White by J Jefferson Farjeon.

It is no ordinary Christmas at Lexham Manor. And the mood is anything but festive. Six holiday guests find themselves the suspects in a murder inquiry when the old Scrooge, Nathaniel Herriard, who owns the substantial estate, is found stabbed in the back. Whilst the delicate matter of inheritance could be the key to this crime, the real conundrum is how any of the suspects could have entered the locked room to commit this atrocity. 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.

About the Author:

Author of over fifty books, GEORGETTE HEYER is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, making the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Famous for her historical novels, she also wrote twelve highly acclaimed mystery novels. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.

Review:

"Georgette Heyer is second to none in her ability to make detective stories entertaining" Sunday Times "The wittiest of detective writers" Daily Mail "Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me ... I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word "Go" Dorothy L. Sayers "We had better start ranking Heyer alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham" San Francisco Chronicle "Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended" New York Times
