5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of suspects, 11 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Blunt Instrument (Kindle Edition)
This is another case for Superintendent Hannasyde and Sergeant Hemingway to solve. A man is bludgeoned to death in his study. There are plenty of possible suspects including the corpse's own nephew who is in need of money and the couple next door - Mr and Mrs John North - who may or may not have been more closely involved with the dead man than they're prepared to admit to. No one can find the `blunt instrument' of the title and there doesn't seem to be any time unaccounted for when the murder could have taken place.

Plagued by a Bible quoting PC and a constantly fluctuating collection of motives and suspects who keep changing their stories, Hannasyde and Hemingway are soon tearing their hair out. An apparently straightforward case becomes more impossible by the minute.

I have now read all Georgette Heyer's mystery novels and they're all well worth reading - carefully plotted with fascinating characters and backgrounds. They can hold their own with the best of the Golden Age detective story writers. If you enjoy Dorothy L Sayers, Ngaio Marsh and Gladys Mitchell then you will enjoy Georgette Heyer as well.
