Publisher's Summary

Life for Henrietta Jenkins was a quiet, well-ordered affair - a home with her widowed mother and degree studies at university. But her life changed dramatically when, just before her 21st birthday, her mother’s body was found in a quiet road, apparently the victim of a hit-and-run driver. For not only did the simple case turn into a murder hunt, but the post mortem also revealed that Grace Jenkins had never had any children. In which case, who was Henrietta?

Henrietta's humor

This is a fun listen! The dry English humor is delightful. I am glad I listened, don't miss this one.

Excellent police procedural; very British.

I enjoyed this mystery involving Detective Inspector Sloan. I expect readers would be somewhat polarized about this audiobook. First of all, not everyone likes police procedurals, which are slow and methodical, but where there are occasional hints dropped along the way that you may pick up even before the Detective does. Almost the opposite of a thriller, there is little real action. Secondly, the humor is very British, understated and cerebral. The narrator does a good job, but you must like this style of language that is relatively unfamiliar to an American ear. Here it is delivered slowly enough that it is easily understood and followed--somewhat like watching Masterpiece Theater. The cast of characters is small but well-developed. The book is short, taking a little less than 5 hours. It's light fare, but entertaining. I look forward to listening to other mysteries by Catherine Aird in her Chronicles of Calleshire series. All her books are relatively short; I'll try to pick them up when they are on sale, but these definitely goes on my wish list.
