Hamilton Crane lives in a small English village not unlike Plummergen. Crane's most recent Miss Seeton novels include Sweet Miss Seeton, Sold to Miss Seeton, Miss Seeton Rules, Miss Seeton Undercover, Starring Miss Seeton, Miss Seeton Plants Suspicion, and Miss Seeton Goes to Bat.From Kirkus Reviews:
If you've ever wondered why the Channel tunnel didn't open 20 years ago, you can thank everyone's favorite retired art teacher/sleuth, Miss Emily Seeton (Sweet Miss Seeton, 1996, etc., etc.). Caught up in a burst of Plummergen charity spurred by an unexpected legacy of reclusive pensioner Horace Jowett, Miss Seeton still has time to accompany the village Junior Mixed Infants on a day trip to France, where she meets Sir George Colveden's old friend Count Jean-Louis de Balivernes; to help entertain the Count when he and his daughter Louise repay the visit; and to make the sketches that help Scotland Yard--already thoroughly alarmed by an unexploded wartime bomb the tunnel drilling crew has run up against--identify first a murder victim and then her killer. This time, though, Miss Seeton is hampered by a pallid mystery and a culprit who'll fool only readers dazed by the thick overlay of village gossip. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
