Product Description

Review

"Among the most revered names in British mystery fiction" (Washington Post)

"One of the "Big Three" female mystery novelists, judged the equal of Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie, but that's not quite accurate - she's more like a mad combination of both" (Independent)

"The marvel is that although Miss Mitchell has been so prolific, she has also been so good" (Edmund Crispin) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? TRY A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY

By Damaskcat HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 May 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Mrs Bradley finds herelf being led to take an interest in a case by means which she doesn't altogether care for. She feels she is being manipulated and that the case may not actually exist and even if it does it may not be what it seems.

Someone's uncle might be about to die from poisoning and when Mrs Bradley visits what appears to be the house concerned she suspects strychnine in the cocoa she is given. After that episode she starts to think there might be something in it after all.

The chase will take her to many places including the Lincolnshire/Yorkshire border and several places in Scotland before the whole case is finally laid bare to the many people who have become involved in it. This is an exciting and intriguing read with a nail biting finale with many of the characters involved under siege. There are codes and ciphers involved as well as Border Ballads.

There is plenty to keep the reader guessing in this complex mystery and there are plenty of amusing comments from Mrs Bradley to keep people amused while they scratch their heads over the various clues. If you like your crime stories traditional then try Mrs Bradley.

Although I am a Gladys Mitchell ' Fan ' , I found this novel ' hard going '. There were long passages of border ballads ( which provided clues ) and the action seemed like something out of 'Boys' Own Paper ' .Altogether disappointing !

Although this is a very good book and at the end, it really does all become clear; it is not an easy read. You need to pay close attention or you will end up wondering what on earth is going on. However I read it twice, the second time more slowly and believe me, it was well worth it.

Some people are not keen on this book, including it seems the publishers BUT don't be put off - the Border ballads are not that annoying and there is a lot of chase action and Mrs Croc making tea while waiting for a murderer to despatch her......

Mitchell books are not easy to come by and if you are a fan you shouldn't miss this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing slow about this story line! 1 Jun. 2014
By J. Harper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
From the moment her niece became involved until the end each scene advanced the plot, each character intensely. Mrs. Bradley kept her clues where I could understand who, why and where without giving away, for sure as to who it is exactly. I thourghly enjoyed "Hangman's Curfew".

One of the best Mitchells I have read so far. Intricate puzzle with lots of action and people who are not what they seem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real spiderweb of conspiracy 21 Jun. 2014
By cathairetic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first Mrs. Bradley mystery I have read where the plot is so openly explained. The reader will be amazed at the audacity of the villain who cares not if anyone dies just so he achieves his ends. Mrs. Bradley is drawn into the case by way of her adopted niece who comes to her after a failed love affair. While walking on the moors she meets a young man who tells her such a fantastic story that the niece goes home to Mrs. Bradley and repeats the whole thing to her. At any rate, Aunt Adela is intrigued and sets out to prove if an attempted murder is really in the works. The bodies pile up as the villain pursues his course of action. He uses Mrs. Bradley's own intelligence and curiosity to help him solve a puzzle that leads to a hidden "treasure!" All the characters get a piece of the action in this book, one of my favorite Mrs. Bradley stories so far and I highly recommend it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Much fun from "The Great Gladys" 3 Aug. 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
On holiday in the north country, Mrs. Bradley's niece meets a young man who tells her of a beastly attempt by someone to poison his uncle. As always, much fun from "The Great Gladys" (Philip Larkin), notwithstanding the overly elaborate plot (hence four stars).
