Riddles surround the death of a cruel Scottish laird...a classic murder mystery from one of 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.
The famous psychoanalyst and detective Dame Beatrice Bradley and her feisty secretary, Laura, travel to Scotland for a conference. But when a series of mishaps lead Laura to the island of Tannasgan, she finds herself at the mercy of some menacing Scottish hospitality. Her strange adventure piques the interest of her employer, and local legends surrounding a cruel Laird lead the pair into a peculiar mystery.
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.
“Richly quirky books, full of dramatic plotting, vigorous behavior and ironic opinions”
“Crime writing's best kept secret”
“The Great Gladys”
“There are many other good detective writers...there is Gladys Mitchell with her fascinating Mrs Bradley, ugly as a toad and armed with the latest up-to-date theories of psychology”
