Publisher Description

Previously titled Envious Casca

'Tis the season to find whodunit ...

It is no ordinary Christmas at Lexham Manor.

Six holiday guests find themselves the suspects in a murder inquiry when the old Scrooge who owns the substantial estate is found stabbed in the back.

Whilst the delicate matter of inheritance could be the key to this crime, the real conundrum is how any of the suspects could have entered the locked room where the victim was found, to commit this foul deed.

For Inspector Hemingway of Scotland Yard, the investigation is also complicated by the fact that every guest at Lexham Manor is hiding something - casting suspicion far and wide...

Author Biography

Author of over fifty books, Georgette Heyer is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, who made the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Although most famous for her historical novels, she also wrote eleven detective stories. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.

Review

"The wittiest of detective writers" Daily Mail "Heyer's characterisation and dialogue are an abiding delight to me . . . I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word Go." -- Dorothy L. Sayers "A writer of great wit and style . . . I've read her books to ragged shreds." Daily Telegraph "Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended." New York Times "We had better start ranking her alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham." San Francisco Chronicle
