9780099493631: They Found Him Dead

The sixtieth birthday party of Silas Kane was marred by argument and dissension amongst his family. And then, the morning after the celebrations, Kane is found dead at the foot of a cliff. The theory that Silas accidentally lost his way in the fog is confirmed when the coroner returns a verdict of death by misadventure.

But then Kane's nephew and heir is murdered and threats are made on the next in line to the fortune, throwing a new and sinister light on Silas Kane's death. All clues point to an elderly lady of eighty as the killer. But as the redoubtable Superintendent Hannasyde delves further into the case he discovers that nothing is quite as it seems...

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:

'Sharp, clear and witty.' (The New Yorker)

'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)

'Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.' (Publishers Weekly)
