One heir after another turns up dead…
Silas Kane’s sixtieth birthday party is marred by argument and dissension amongst his family, and then the next morning, Kane is found dead. The coroner’s verdict of death by misadventure would seem to confirm that Silas accidentally lost his way in the fog. But then his heir is shot, and threats are made against the next in line to inherit his fortune. The redoubtable Superintendent Hannasyde is called in to investigate. All clues point to an apparently innocuous eighty-year-old woman, but as the Inspector delves further into the case, he discovers that nothing is quite as it seems.

is another Superintendent Hannasyde mystery.
It’s characters are ever so proper
(and sometimes not so),
and the writing is brilliantly British.
(Sssssssssssssh – I think that I’m a closet Anglophile:-)
You won’t know who done it, until the very end!
I think that I’m now ready to start reading some of Heyer’s
Thanks so much to Danielle and Sourcebooks, for
giving me the opportunity to get to know
Georgette Heyer’s works.
