Good story, well told,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Murder in the Family (Kindle Edition)
As a previous resident of Jersey, this book held extra interest for me. The author has worked hard to give background to the various players and to provide motive for the crime. For my part, I was more convinced by the idea that Lloyds would soon be clawing back a large part of their inheritance than The "mummy was beastly to me" explanation. Being aloof from one's children was nothing exceptional in those circles in those times.
Slightly unpolished with a fifties flavour, the book was interesting and entertaining: I liked the pen pictures of the Jersey police particularly and their desire to be seen as competent enough to solve the big case!
