" Praise for Georgette Heyer's mystery novels:"
"'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)
"'Sharp, clear and witty'" ( The New Yorker)
"'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)
It is a complete mystery why anyone would choose to murder the trusted old butler of Norton Manor. Barrister turned amateur detective, Frank Amberley, has reason to suspect that the shooting involves the nervy young lady discovered at the scene of the crime, a snooping gentleman in the halls of Greythorne and then a second dead body. This is a dramatic tale of upstairs, downstairs and family secrets.
