Publisher's Summary

Locals claim it is haunted and refuse to put a single toe past the front door, but to siblings Peter, Celia, and Margaret, the Priory is nothing more than a rundown estate inherited from their late uncle, and the perfect setting for a much-needed holiday.
But when a murder victim is discovered in the drafty Priory halls, the once unconcerned trio begins to fear that the ghostly rumours are true and they are not alone after all! With a killer on the loose, will they find themselves the next victims of a supernatural predator, or will they uncover a far more corporeal culprit?

"Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended." (The New York Times)
"Bright and effervescent." (The Times Literary Supplement)
"Georgette Heyer is second to none in her ability to make detective stories entertaining. Praise for the author." (Sunday Times)

Entertaining mystery from the great Georgette

Any additional comments?

Unlike some other reviewers, I think the narrator did a very fine job. I enjoyed her reading, characterizations, and she has a lovely voice. Having read the book already, I knew the plot, but nevertheless I was kept engaged by the wonderful dialogue.Thank goodness Heyer's mysteries are being made available in unabridged audiobooks!

A Fun Story!

The story was incredibly fun with ancient houses, secret passages, and interesting characters. Ulli Birve did a fine job with the narration. After I listened to Why Shoot a Butler, I was reluctant to listen to Ulli Birve narrarate another Georgette Heyer novel. But the last two novels I have listened to with Birve as narrator have been very good.
