READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? TRY A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY A phantom horseman...secret love affairs....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.

Could the dead body of a young student at a women’s agricultural college be connected to the appearance of a ghostly horseman patrolling the campus grounds? The witchlike Mrs Bradley, incomparable psychoanalyst and detective, is intrigued. Soon she uncovers secret love-affairs and petty thefts, and follows the trail to Scotland, Ireland and the south of Italy in order to root out the truth.

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