READ ALL AGATHA CHRISTIE? TRY A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY A double murder at convent school...a classic murder mystery from one of the queen's 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.

Mrs Bradley, renowned psychologist and private detective, is summoned to the convent school of St Peter’s Finger, where a girl’s body has been found in a bathtub – did Ursula kill herself, or, as the nuns fear, is a murderer at large in the school?

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