9780099493624: Death in the Stocks

A moonlit night. A sleeping village. And an unaccountable murder...

An English bobbie returning from night patrol finds a corpse in evening dress locked in the stocks on the village green. He identifies the body immediately. Andrew Vereker was not a well-loved man, and narrowing down the suspects is not going to be an easy job. The Vereker family are corrupt and eccentric -and hardly cooperative ...

It's another case for the resourceful Superintendent Hannasyde, who sets off on the trail of a killer so cunning that even his consummate powers of detection are tested to their limits...

Review:

" 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)

Review:

'Death in the Stocks is that rare and refreshing thing – a clever problem stated, developed and finally solved in terms of character.' (The Times)

'Miss Heyer's characters act and speak with an ease and conviction that is refreshing as it is rare in the ordinary mystery novel.' (The Times Literary Supplement)

'Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended.' (The New York Times)
