Publisher's Summary

November 1928. Family and friends have gathered at the Shropshire country home of Penrose Llewellyn to celebrate the retired wealthy businessman's 60th birthday. But the morning after what should have been a convivial supper party, their host is found dead in his bed - and the circumstances look decidedly suspicious.
As he questions the victim's nearest and dearest, DI Reardon discovers there are several longstanding secrets lurking amongst the Llewellyn clan - and he is convinced that not everyone is telling him the truth, or at least not the whole truth.
Those who stand to inherit most from Pen Llewellyn's will - if it can be found - are under the strongest suspicion, and among them hides a ruthless killer.

A really good series!

I stretched this out because it is thoughtful, well written, and fun. The characters are believable, we are given enough of the clues to suspect the real villain, including psychological clues to that character's psyche, and the grammar and syntax is correct (sadly a consideration these days). I highly recommend these to you dear fellow readers, and wish you strength and safety in these difficult days.

Excellent writing, story good.

Would you consider the audio edition of Heirs and Assigns to be better than the print version?

The characters are interesting but not as much historical interest. The story line
is a little slow, but a nice mystery.

What other book might you compare Heirs and Assigns to and why?

I think she is a better writer than Agatha Christie.
