Publisher's Summary

From the tip of his black Homburg to the crease in his cheviot trousers, he's the epitome of a stylish 1930s English gentleman. His only problem? The body he just discovered.
Drew Farthering loves a good mystery, although he generally expects to find it in the pages of a novel, not on the grounds of his country estate. With the help of beautiful and whip-smart Madeline Parker, a guest from America, Drew proposes to use the lessons he’s learned reading his mysteries to solve the crime. Before long, he realizes this is no lark, and no one at Farthering Place is who he or she appears to be - not the butler nor blackmailer, the chauffeur nor embezzler. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer - and trying harder to impress Madeline - Drew must decide how far to take this dangerous game.

Good murder mystery

This was a mystery with twists and turns that kept me guessing. It is the first time I have read a mystery with a Christian theme that did not seem contrived. Good job!

Pretty Good!

The good is: 1) the price - it was on sale, 2) the narrator - Simon Vance is one of the very best, and 3) the plot was plenty twisty in the end. The bad is: 1) the story was rather plodding and I almost gave up on it several times so almost didn't get to the end, 2) as other reviewers have mentioned, there is an inordinate amount of gratuitous religion and "preaching" that is not necessary to the story, 3) while I don't want to reveal any spoilers there are a number of instances that occur that make little sense as they are never totally explained or resolved, and 4) in the era this story took place, I have trouble imagining that young women would be allowed the freedom with the opposite sex that these girls apparently had.

All that being said, however, it was an okay read but I am afraid I am spoiled by the Christies, Allinghams, and Edmund Crispins etc. of the literary world. This one doesn't measure up by those standards.
