This is Gladys Mitchell’s first book and it marks the entrance of the inimitable Mrs Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley, psychoanalyst and unorthodox amateur sleuth, into the world of detective fiction. But instead of leading the police to the murderer, she begins as their chief suspect.
A mystery that will keep you on your toes!
I just love the Mrs Bradley mysteries.
Miss Mitchell’s narrative style has always drawn me to her books and her main character in the form of Mrs Bradley, is not the typical fluffy, pink cheeked lovable old lady of many detective novels.
