When the vicar’s wife discovers that her unmarried housemaid is pregnant, sometime detective and full-time Freudian, Mrs. Bradley, undertakes a unnervingly unorthodox investigation into the mysterious pregnancy and subsequent deaths in the village.

One of the classic ‘Golden Age’ crime mysteries.

I really like the Gladys Mitchell Mrs. Bradley books.  For that period, Gladys Mitchell touched subjects that many authors would never go near.  But she managed it with such panache, that she pulled it off time and time again.

I enjoyed my third or is it my fourth reading/listening of the book…oh well, no matter.  These books are always a joy to read or listen to (we need more audiobooks, please).  If you like quirky, off the beaten track mysteries, theses will fill the spot.

5 Stars*****
