This mystery is an enjoyable read. The characters are interesting. The mystery is not overly difficult to solve, but tricky enough to keep you guessing. Like most of Heyer's books, it is a fun read overall.

An excellent mystery by Georgette Heyer, fully as good as any of her romance novels.

Pub. 1st in 1970, this book is a police proceedural featuring Insp. Harding, in a sort of country house/estate mystery. Heyer, known for her romances is equally adept at mystery writing.

Why couldn't Georgette Heyer have written more mysteries, instead of wasting her time writing all those romances? I will be so sorry when I finish her mysteries, and there are only three left.

In this book, about 60% of the way through I figured out who the killer was, simply because every one was ignoring that person. It seemed Inspector Harding took forever to figure out what I already knew. Except we didn't, as we were both wrong. But he finally got it right, and I was stunned when he made the arrest.
