It's no ordinary morning at the Poplars – the master is found dead in his bed, and it seems his high blood pressure was not the cause. When an autopsy reveals a sinister poison, it's up to the quietly resourceful Inspector Hannasyde to catch the murderer in time to spare the next victim. But every single member of the quarrelsome Matthews family has a motive and none, of course, has an alibi.

Great Heyer mystery unfortunately ruined by reader
The good news is Georgette Heyer mysteries have been updated. The bad news is they are all read by the same reader & she isn't very good -- she reads so slowly I lost interest in the story.
Enjoyed the story, great twist at the end.
Enjoyed Georgette Heyer's The Grand Sophie & wished the reader had been used for Heyer's mysteries also.
