A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Rediscover Gladys Mitchell – one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.
It occurred to Alfrist C Swinburne early in life that death was a solver of problems, particularly when it was visited on close family members who will leave behind a rich inheritance.
Dame Beatrice Bradley, psychoanalyst and sleuth, first crosses paths with Swinburne when a woman's body is discovered in the cloisters of a women's college, but it is not until a dramatic performance of the Beggar's Opera that Dame Beatrice can unmask the secrets of Swinburne's chequered past.
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.
