9780099493686: Penhallow

The death of Adam Penhallow on the eve of his birthday seems, at first, to be by natural causes. He was elderly after all. But Penhallow wasn't well liked. He had ruled over his estate with an iron will and a sharp tongue. He had played one relative off against another. He was so bad tempered and mean that both his servants and his family hated him.

It soon transpires that far from being a peaceful death, Penhallow was, in fact, murdered. Poisoned. With his family gathered to celebrate his birthday, and servants that both feared and despised him, there are more than a dozen prime suspects. But which one of them turned hatred into murder?

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:

'Georgette Heyer is second to none in her ability to make detective stories entertaining.' (The Sunday Times)

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

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

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