The Country House Murders
Tom Morris, busy cataloguing the library of Plumwood Hall, is in a fix. Three days before, a member of the family had keeled over at afternoon tea after eating a slice of fruit cake laced with poison. And Tom has been fingered by the weasel-like Inspector Hyde as chief suspect.
The young scholar turns to the only person who can help: his old Oxford tutor, C. S. (‘Jack’) Lewis.
As they investigate, mystery piles on mystery. Why did the victim’s husband disappear twelve months before? Why is a strange tattooed foreigner living in a cottage on the moors? Who is the wild man of the woods?
And most puzzling of all: how did a massive dose of cyanide get into just one slice of cake?
C. S. Lewis’s second mind-twisting case has all the hallmarks of a classic Country House Mystery.
Richards is a master at creating a 1930s background – long may his series continue.
Follows the well-received C. S. Lewis and the Corpse in the Cellar: A tale that twists and turns in the tradition of the golden age of English murder mysteries like Agatha Christie. Add [the author’s] trademark humour and it's an entertaining baffler!
