One heir after another turns up dead…
Silas Kane's sixtieth birthday party is marred by argument and dissension amongst his family, and then the next morning, Kane is found dead. The coroner's verdict of death by misadventure would seem to confirm that Silas accidentally lost his way in the fog. But then his heir is shot, and threats are made against the next in line to inherit his fortune. The redoubtable Superintendent Hannasyde is called in to investigate. All clues point to an apparently innocuous eighty-year-old woman, but as the Inspector delves further into the case, he discovers that nothing is quite as it seems…
PRAISE FOR THEY FOUND HIM DEAD:
"Ranks alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey, and Allingham."
San Francisco Chronicle
"The author introduces us to enough lively and interesting people to make the book attractive even without its ingenious detective plot."
The Times Literary Supplement
"Miss 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
More Praise for Miss Heyer:
"Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit."
Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC
"Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen."
"Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to."
The third book in Georgette Heyer's brilliant and highly acclaimed series of detective novels featuring the amiable Superintendent Hannasyde.
