READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? TRY A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY Sinister goings-on in a sleepy English village...a classic murder mystery from one the queens of Golden Age crime fiction

A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Rediscover Gladys Mitchell – one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.

Fenella, great-niece to the unorthodox psychoanalyst and sleuth Mrs Bradley, unwittingly stumbles upon a pagan ritual in the sleepy village of Seven Wells. When the village's pub landlord disappears, Fenella calls on her great aunt's expert advice to help her unravel the developing mysteries. Why was the squire of the village stabbed in the back? And what is the secret of the five skeletons in the crypt?

Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.

She is one of the Big Three women detective writers

Observer

Gladys Mitchell can always be relied upon for a packed and meaty novel, and an intelligent one too

Guardian

Mrs Bradley is easily one of the most memorable personalities

The marvel is that although Miss Mitchell has been so prolific, she has also been so good

Edmund Crispin

Miss Mitchell began her career in the golden age of detective fiction and maintained her highly individual talent through all the genre's vicissitudes
