9780099582250: The Longer Bodies

Great Aunt Puddequet was reputed to be enormously wealthy. It was also a tradition in the family that she was extraordinarily mean. So when the malicious old bird summons her grand-nephews to perform in a games tournament in order to secure their inheritances, they gloomily oblige. Before long, the games are interrupted by murder, the police are baffled, and an unusual psychiatrist called Mrs Bradley begins to take an interest.

About the Author:

GLADYS MITCHELL was an English schoolteacher and the author of over sixty novels featuring her unconventional heroine, Mrs Bradley. An early member of the Detection Club, alongside Agatha Christie, G.K Chesterton and Dorothy L. Sayers, she was awarded the Crime Writers Association Silver Dagger in 1976. Her hobbies included architecture and writing poetry. She studied the works of Sigmund Freud and her interest in witchcraft was encouraged by her friend, the detective novelist Helen Simpson.

Review:

"There are many other good detective writers...there is Gladys Mitchell with her fascinating Mrs Bradley, ugly as a toad and armed with the latest up-to-date theories of psychology" -- Agatha Christie Guardian "Among the most revered names in British mystery fiction" Washington Post "Mrs. Bradley and her dapper chauffeur, George, drive about the countryside in a midnight-blue Rolls-Royce with full bar, and wherever they go, they find murder" New York Times "Easily the best woman detective in fiction" News Chronicle "Filled with marvellously memorable characters... Sure to delight any fans of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers" -- Kirsty Hewitt Nudge
