On his return from South Africa, Charles Knox is invited to spend the weekend at the country home of Sir Neville Strickland, whose beautiful wife Rosamund was once Knox's fiancee. But in the dead of night Sir Neville is murdered. Who did it? As suspicion falls on each of the house guests in turn, Knox finds himself faced with deception and betrayal on all sides, and only the enigmatic Angela Marchmont seems to offer a solution to the mystery. This 1920s whodunit will delight all fans of traditional country house murder stories.


  • Absolutely Painful to Read

    The book seemed to drag on and on. The main character was NOT Mrs. Marchmont as the “Angela Marchmont Mysteries” has you to believe but an absolute idiot that you want to take and shake. The killer was obvious from pretty much the beginning and the only reason this got two stars from me is that how the killer did it was still a mystery. The ending was just kinda dumb and not believable.

    Unexpectedly an enjoyable book. Written like an Agatha Christie novel, I loved it. Old English charm, believable characters and a compelling mystery. Can’t wait to read more of this author’s work.

    It was a classic British detective and well-written. The plot was a little predictable, but still suspenseful enough for the majority of the book to make it enjoyable.
