Chief Inspector Hemingway investigates the murder of village solicitor Sampson Warrenby, a man with an abundance of enemies.

"Miss Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me... I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word 'Go'."
-Dorothy L. Sayers

Slumped on a seat under an oak tree is old Sampson Warrenby, with a bullet through his head.

Everybody in the village is ready to tell Chief Inspector Hemingway who did it. Could the murderer have been the dead man's niece? Or perhaps it was the other town solicitor? The couple at the farm had a guilty secret-what was it? And why is it someone else actually wants to be the prime suspect?

Add to this the fact that Warrenby was blackmailing someone, and Hemingway has his work cut out for him.

"Georgette Heyer is second to none in her ability to make detective stories entertaining."
-Sunday Times

Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty books, including Regency romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. Her barrister husband, Ronald Rougier, provided many of the plots for her detective novels, which are classic English country house mysteries reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, inventive plots, and sparkling characterization.

An entertaining read and one I highly enjoyed! Trying to figure out who did the murder will keep you interested in all the characters and have you getting excited about new clues! Highly recommended for any mystery lover! It takes a bit to get into as it can be wordy and focuses on many side characters before (and after) the actual murder but sticking with it was worth it!
