An ARC honest review for Farrago Books via NetGalley.
Miss Seeton is joining Sir George and Lady Colveden and friends on a cruise, taking in the sights of Venice and the Greek islands, with guest speakers on antiquities…one speaker is Sir Wormelow Tump, friend of Miss Seeton and the Colveden’s.
Another is the TV personality Adrian Witley, who is in a legal row with Ferencz Szabo/Frank Taylor over the authenticated bust of Homer, which Witley says is genuine and Szabo says is fake.
After a couple of accidents happening to Szabo/Taylor, which Miss Seeton’s trusted brolly helps to prevent.
Adrian Witley is found beaten to death in his cabin and someone attacks Miss Seeton and her drawings are stolen.
Sir George and Miss Seeton call for the help of Chief Superintendent Delphick to come to their aid in the Greek islands.
With brolly and drawings can Miss Seeton help find the culprit?
Another fun Miss Seeton mystery to keep you entertained.
Love this series and I’m very glad to get the opportunity to revisit with Heron Carvics fun characters.
Lucky Miss Seeton is thrilled to be ‘awarded’ a luxury cruise from Venice to the Greek islands, for her services as official artist to Scotland Yard. But also on the good ship Eurydice are her friends, Sir George and Lady Emily Colveden, who know all about Miss S’s talent for tripping up wrongdoers. And by coincidence of course, there are a couple of well-known warring art experts, one of whom soon ends up dead.
This voyage is heading into stormy waters, but by the crook of her brolly Miss S untangles the truth and brings them all safely into harbour.
Serene amidst every kind of skulduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella!
