    Damn it, he was in here with the door locked Stephen said He can t have been stabbedI think Heyer wrote a story about people she hated in real life, relished and had a hell of a time making them an exaggerated version vapid, insipid, and whiney but oh so highly quotable This is second in the Inspector Hemingway series and god love the man for the testimonies and evid

    A perfectly good Christmas murder mystery set at an English country house party with all your usual suspects the detestable old rich guy and all the relations chomping at the bit for him to kick the bucket Not quite a true isolated closed circle mystery, as the detective and others are able to come and go, but very close to that trope does have a locked room component for

    This is my first Georgette Heyer mystery, although I have read two of her books previously I enjoyed this mystery much better than the other books and I will definitely look forof her mysteries I enjoyed the humor and also the way the detective worked through the clues meticulously I did however guess the murderer prior to the end but it was still a fun read.
