Perfect holiday reading for a trip to North Wales?
on 16 June 2015
Cracking mystery with plentiful red herrings and well-rounded, if unusual, characters. It starts when a man is found dead in his chair in a house in a respectable leafy suburb. At first all seems straight forward: he wasn't well and appeared to have had an unfortunate allergic reaction when no one had been around to help. Something doesn't quite add up, though, and our hero, who has failed to get his expected promotion, is determined to find out what has really been going on in this household of women and at the old farm where the deceased's sisters still live.
No idea when it was meant to be set - late 20th centuary? Almost everyone seems to smoke continuously without embarrassment or censure, which definitely dates it.
