READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? TRY A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY A ghostly apparition...an unexplained death...a classic murder mystery from one of the queens of Golden Age crime fiction

A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Rediscover Gladys Mitchell – one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.

A dead solicitor, a suspicious pig-farmer and a local ghost disturb Mrs Bradley’s holiday to Oxfordshire. Nothing is as it seems however, and the inimitable detective must work fast if she is to protect her nephew's household from a resourceful killer.

Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.

Reviews

The mark of a Mitchell mystery is to lead us into familiar territory, there to shatter illusions of predictability

Daily Mail

Mrs Lestrange Bradley...is by far the best and most vital English female detective

Observer

Superbly odd
