4.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Jeffries on the Ball, 3 Jan 2014

Mrs Jeffries arranges for her employer, Detective Inspector Gerald Witherspoon to take a neighbour to a ball being held in connection with awards being made by a literary society. Fortunately or unfortunately a member of the society is murdered during the ball and Witherspoon finds himself investigating the crime ably assisted in the background by his domestic staff.

I found this mystery an entertaining read during a stressful few hours and it helped me to relax. I did work out who the murderer was quite early on but it was still interesting to see how it all worked out and the murderer was discovered.

I like the characters in the cosy mystery series and the way the servants work as a team - even Fred the dog playing his part. There is plenty of humour and light hearted dialogue in the book and the mystery is well plotted. The background of Victorian London is well done too. Recommended to any readers who enjoy crime mysteries without too much on the page violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable and interesting, 30 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This is the first Mrs Jeffries book I have read but I will certainly read more. A good story and a great cast of characters, the language is good too, there are no words or phrases that jump out and hit you as being 'wrong' or 'out of their time'.
