Product Description


Sir Digby Kirtling, self-made millionaire and would-be member of the landed-gentry class, has renovated a crumbling manor house in Gloucestershire and engaged interior designer Athena Letchworth to supervise the decor. On her recommendation, he commissions artist Philip Montwell to copy an impressionist painting to which he has taken a fancy; and when it is finished he throws a party for the unveiling. Celebration turns to tragedy when his estate manager, Una May, is found dead in the grounds, strangled with her own gold neck-chain. Sir Digby himself quickly becomes the prime suspect as a post-mortem reveals that Una was pregnant and DNA tests prove he is the father. Sukey Reynolds, Crime Scene Investigator, is reluctantly drawn into an attempt by Sir Digby's house-keeper and devoted mistress to prove his innocence. And then another murder takes place. Sir Digby is again a suspect, but now Sukey has doubts...doubts that nearly cause her to become the third victim...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Art of murder. 7 Dec 2008
By Jane Baker VINE VOICE
I picked this up off the shelves never having heard of Betty Rowlands. My interest was caught because of my love of Art.I also liked Sukey and became thoroughly caught up in her relationship with Jim.Her motherly care for her son Fergus, who's just left home for University brought back my own feelings when my son did the same. Rowlands captures the mood music of these times and the tension between lovers where there's some lack of trust as there was between Sir Digby and Marianne. Digby is a thorough cad and his mistress/housekeeper plain silly in her devotion. The murder plot is very original and quite charming in places!! A very good read - not totally captivating but good enough for any crime fiction lover who likes this genre to be rather gentle. I'll certainly read more of this author.
