READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? READ A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Mysterious twins...a cricket match murder...a classic detective story 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.
Twin brothers Francis and Derek Caux are orphaned at the age of seven, and soon after separated by their grandfather, Sir Adrian, who all but abandons deaf-and-dumb Francis and takes the handsome Derek under his wing. But now the pair are brought together by a pair of murders and the attentions of the witchlike psychoanalyst-detective, Mrs Bradley. Do the brothers share a guilty conscience?
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.
“A crime writer who, in her day, ranked with Christie and Sayers”
“Crime writing's best kept secret”
“Mrs Lestrange Bradley...is by far the best and most vital English female detective”
