Rediscover Gladys Mitchell – one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.

Christmas in the Cotswolds brings with it the apparition of a country parson, a series of poison pen letters, and a woman’s body frozen in the snow. The eminent psychoanalyst and superior sleuth Mrs Bradley has a theory about who’s behind all three and sets about a plan to ensnare the unseasonal villain.

Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.

"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)

"One of the "Big Three" female mystery novelists, judged the equal of Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie, but that's not quite accurate - she's more like a mad combination of both" ( Independent)
