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

One of Sir Bohun Chantrey's great passions in life is the stories of Sherlock Holmes. To celebrate the great man's anniversary, he throws a party at which the guests are instructed to come as characters from the detective stories. But several of the guests are more interested in Sir Bohun's money, and when he announces that he is to marry a poor governess, things take a turn for the worse, not least when the Hound of the Baskervilles turns up...

Fortunately the incomparable detective Mrs Bradley and her secretary Laura are amongst the guests and ready to investigate the deepening mystery.

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

Review:

"This is one to be put aside for a relaxing Christmas read...the mark of a Mitchell mystery is to lead us into familiar territory there to shatter illusions of predictability...try guessing the culprit by all means but there are high odds against getting it right" (Barry Turner Daily Mail)

"Crime writing's best-kept secret" (Scotsman)

"Among the most revered names in British mystery fiction" (Washington Post)

"Completely individual, instantly recognisable and highly enjoyable" (Times Literary Supplement)
