Publisher's Summary

In 1890 twelve guests gather at Desborough Hall for a week’s shooting party hosted by the beautiful Lady Amelia Hammond. Months of planning have left nothing to chance, for the main guests are the Prince and Princess of Wales. But events take a sinister turn when the vivacious Queenie Chimes collapses face down in the chef’s lovingly created bombe-glacée. More deaths follow and clues planted on the bodies point shockingly to a final tally of seven, one for each day of the week. Bertie is impelled to investigate.
Written in the tradition of the ‘golden age’ detective story, the book was intended as a homage to Agatha Christie in the year of her centenary.

Very disappointed

Chose on the basis of Peter Diamond series - this was a very poor relation. Dreary radio 4 style, only the fact I had a very long drive did I stick with it. Having got to the end, silence would have been preferable. Still like his other stuff, but this was rubbish.
