5.0 out of 5 stars Weird but good, 2 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Saltmarsh Murders (Paperback)
Gladys Mitchell's heroine Mrs Bradley is one of the weirdest amateur detectives that I have ever encountered. She has a macabre sense of humour and equals Miss Marple for her jaundiced view of humanity. Although these early novels are written in an era which contemporary with Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers and Margery Allingham these books share little with their 'cosy' backgrounds. If you like a murder mystery with a twist read on! Even better try and get the audio books with Mary Wimbush (the sadly now deceased Julia Pargeter in the Archers) as Mrs Bradley or listen to the stories on BBC Radio 7 as they should be repeated on the station before the end of 2010. I've never heard anyone cackle on radio like she does in these stories!
