When an American multi-millionaire is keen to buy an Elizabethan manor, she comes up against fierce opposition from a young boy, Jay, and his band of bowmen, who are prepared to defend the manor and its nonagerian owner against all comers. It seems likely that that behind a monumental, 17th-century carving, by the hand of Gerard Christmas, lies a hoard of treasure.

Not An Appleby Book but an intriguing listen
It is not in the genre that I expected - not a whodunnit with Inspector Appleby investigating.
Yes and he is equally good here. He brings the characters and settings to life.
No - it was intriguing.
If you would like a well-written piece of eloquent whimsy set in two British country houses then you'll enjoy this. If you want a murder mystery (as advertised when I bought it) you'll be disappointed.
not an appleby, but fun anyway
yes, I'd like to get all the characters straight in my mind. Plus ending is a humdinger.
This book is classified as an Inspector Appleby book. It isn't. However the characters are great fun. The plot is similar to the Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books we read as children in the old days.
