Synopsis

The theft of the diamond necklace and the antique pistols might all be explained, but the body in the lake – that really was a puzzle. ‘Don’t expect me to solve anything,’ Inspector Wilkens announced modestly when he arrived to sort out the unpleasantness. And at a gathering that included English aristocracy, foreign agents in disguise, a ravishing baroness, a daring jewel thief, a Texan millionaire and, of course, the imperturbable butler, it was going to take some intricate sleuthing to uncover who killed whom and why.

    This is the first in a trilogy about the Burford family. The setting is in the 1930s in an upper class estate home. All the traditional aspects of that kind of life are represented in the book. The story is tight and keeps your attention. If you like Agatha Christie, you will probably enjoy this book and the other two in the seriwes (The Affair of the Mutlilated mINK , The Affair of the 39 Cufflinks).

    The bloodstained egg cosy

    I always like whodonit mysteries. It was a little long winded at the end and a little confusing but I liked it.
