More About the Author

Look out for the latest Angela Marchmont mystery, The Problem at Two Tithes, coming soon!

On a reluctant visit to her painfully respectable brother and his wife, Angela Marchmont finds herself once again caught up in murder when a local farmer is shot dead, apparently at the hands of his sworn enemy. But the case is not as simple as it seems, for other motives and suspects soon come to light. With reporters hot on the scent and her friend Inspector Jameson battling a conflict of interest, Angela must use all her ingenuity to unravel the case and bring the murderer to justice--or more than one person will suffer the consequences.

This is the second novel featuring Angela Marchmont, and following, “The Murder at Sissingham Hall.” These books were written in the 1920’s by author Clara Benson as a hobby, but never published in her lifetime. Thankfully, this has been rectified now, as this series is a delight for any fans of Golden Age mysteries.

After her success at Sissingham Hall (and a rather exciting past hinted at by her friend at Scotland Yard, Inspector Jameson), Angela Marchmont is approached by an old friend of hers, Louisa Haynes. Louisa lives at Underwood House with her husband John and son Donald. Her father in law, the mischievous and eccentric Philip Haynes, enjoyed nothing better than causing trouble between his family. John Haynes, as the eldest son, should have received his beloved Underwood House in his father’s will. Instead, Philip Haynes split his will between his remaining living children; John, Philippa, Winifred and Edward. Another daughter, the wayward, rebellious Christina, left home when young and died. The family, including Philip Haynes’s children and grandchildren have to meet twice a year in order to meet the instructions of the will and they do so with ill grace and bad humour. What is more, three of the family members have died during these reunions and Louisa Haynes is worried that they are not natural deaths…

This is a wonderful mystery, with family feuds, secrets, financial scandals and the involvement of both Inspector Jameson and the redoubtable Angela Marchmont. This series is fast becoming a delight and I can only thank the family of Clara Benson for making them available to us at last.

Louisa Haynes asks Angela Marchmont to look into why her husband’s brother and sisters have all met untimely deaths in her home, Underwood House. Angela very quickly gets the idea that she could be poking a stick into a hornet’s nest and wonders seriously whether to refuse. Then she meets her friend Inspector Jameson of Scotland Yard who asks her unofficially to take on the task.

This is an entertaining and complex mystery written in the nineteen twenties and featuring the Haynes family who are constantly at each other’s throats. This state of affairs is not helped by the provisions of their late father’s will which seems designed to create discord rather than harmony. Angela soon finds out rather more than she needed to know about the whole family and the deeper she digs the more secrets she uncovers. She finds herself in danger too and must risk all to finally unmask the killer.

A well written and at times amusing mystery with a sufficiently complex plot to keep most readers guessing. I though the characters were believable though some are less than likeable. They are never cardboard cut outs and all behave in plausible ways given their circumstances and upbringing. I’d recommend the Angela Marchmont mysteries to anyone who likes Golden Age crime fiction. They can be read in any order.

This second Angela Marchmont mystery is better than the first one which was pleasant but predictable and a little slow getting going. This is much less predictable with a number of candidates for the murderer.An enjoyable Agaha Christie style whodunit.

... when all you want to do is snuggle up with a book.

If you like Agatha Christie's Miss Marple or Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver books then this would be an ideal as it is based during the same time period between the two world wars.

For just a couple of quid it kept me occupied for a couple of hours and for a bookworm like me well worth it.

This was only my second Clara Benson mystery, but what a pleasure in discovering such an excellent writer. What a surprise to learn, that during her lifetime she was unpublished and that writing was only a hobby. I thoroughly enjoy her books and see a little of Miss Marple in Angela Marchmont. I thank whoever is responsible for making her books accessible to Kindle readers. A fully deserved five stars and recommended.

These books are superb! I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie, Georgette Heyer, Dorothy Sayers, Patricia Wentworth and their ilk and have read everything they have written. Just when I thought I had run out of a supply of the kind of detective stories I love, along came Clara Benson! I find I read these quickly as I cannot put them down and am hoping to see plenty more of them coming up in the near future. Bring them on I say! By the way, does anyone know what the 3rd book is as Amazon doesn't seem to stock it?
