An escape to the country… ends in death.
Summer 1933. Fresh from the discovery that she has family living nearby, Kitty Underhay has packed her carpet bag, commandeered a chambermaid and set off on a visit to stately Enderley Hall. She’s looking forward to getting to know her relatives, as well as the assembled group of house guests. But when elderly Nanny Thoms is found dead at the bottom of the stairs after papers of national importance are stolen, Kitty quickly learns that Muffy the dog’s muddy paws on her hemline are the least of her problems.
Calling on ex-army captain Matthew Bryant for assistance, Kitty begins to puzzle out the mystery. And when more shocking murders follow, the stakes are raised for the daring duo as never before. Which of the guests stand to gain from the theft of the documents? And which, as the week progresses, stand to lose their lives?
A charming cozy historical murder mystery that fans of Agatha Christie, T.E. Kinsey and Lee Strauss won’t be able to put down!

‘I thoroughly enjoyed this book which merges Miss Marple with Lord Peter Wimsey to make an engaging, sophisticated, and personable heroine who is ably assisted by the enigmatic and serious Captain Bryant. There were red herrings, great atmospheric content and a few weasely locals to give added colour … I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction with a murderously mysterious element or a good cosy crime. This book delivers on all fronts.’ NetGalley reviewer, 5 stars
‘This is a lovely read! I could visualise the hotel so well, the town, the hustle and bustle of life in the 1930's… I thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling, the little clues, the way the mysteries developed. It definitely got the little grey cells working!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars
