Product Description

Product Description

When Angela Marchmont goes to Cornwall on doctor's orders she is looking forward to a nice rest and nothing more exciting than a little sea-bathing. But her plans for a quiet holiday are dashed when she is caught up in the hunt for a diamond necklace which, according to legend, has been hidden in the old smugglers' house at Poldarrow Point for over a century.

Aided by the house's elderly owner, an irrepressible twelve-year-old, and a handsome Scotland Yard detective, Angela soon finds herself embroiled in the most perplexing of mysteries. Who is the author of the anonymous letters? Why is someone breaking into the house at night? And is it really true that a notorious jewel-thief is after the treasure too? Angela must use all her powers of deduction to solve the case and find the necklace—before someone else does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reminiscent of "Five on a Treasure Island".. 1 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this series - this one is the best so far. It reminded me of Enid Blyton's "Five on a Treasure Island". Angela Marchmont, star of the previous books, returns and is assisted by her young god-daughter who does much of the sleuthing. With villains galore,red herrings and secret passages leading from an old cliff top house to the beach, this is a good old fashioned read. The plot is unsophisticated but the book has a charm of its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable mystery 2 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the classic style of English Mysteries, such as Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer and am always looking for new authors in that vein. Happily, Clara Benson is one such author and her main characters are both believable and likeable. I have read all three of her publlused books and always end up reading late into the night as the plots and characters are so interesting.

I look forward to more of her books being published, even if it will mean more mornings spent yawning at my desk as a result of more late night reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Treasure at Poldarrow Point 24 Jan 2014
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Angela Marchmont, following a nasty bout of flu, is recommended by her doctor to take a holiday. She rents a house in Cornwall for some much needed rest and recreation only to find her god daughter, Barbara, turning up on her doorstep. Barbara is a very self-sufficient thirteen year old and manages to involve Angela in a search for hidden treasure.

International jewel thieves, undercover police, socialites who may or may not be who they say they are and Barbara's propensity for disappearing mean Angela's peaceful holiday is far more exciting than her doctor might have recommended.

I enjoyed this interesting mystery set in the nineteen thirties. The characters are believable and likeable and Barbara rather steals the show with her resourcefulness and her adherence to justice and fair play. Angela herself is an interesting character and the background of a ramshackle house on the cliffs is the ideal scenery for a hunt for lost treasure.

If you like your mysteries in the classic mould then try these well written Golden Age mysteries.
