READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? TRY A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
A dangerous woman...a deadly conspiracy...a classic murder mystery from one of the queens of Golden Age crime fiction
Rediscover Gladys Mitchell – one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.
Rosamund Lestrange's behaviour is decidedly strange - but is she really an unhinged wife, or is she an innocent and sane girl at the centre of a conspiracy wrought by her guardian? Dame Beatrice Bradley is called to apply her psychiatric skills to the problem, but when the question of a rich inheritance arises and a body is found, her peerless skills as a detective are more urgently required.
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.
“Crime writing's best kept secret”
“If a relaxing diversion is of the essence for a good holiday, a Gladys Mitchell novel is a must...a crime writer who, in her day, ranked with Christie and Sayers”
“The Great Gladys”
“There are many other good detective writers...there is Gladys Mitchell with her fascinating Mrs Bradley, ugly as a toad and armed with the latest up-to-date theories of psychology”
Agatha Christie, Guardian
