    An absolutely gripping cozy murder mystery

    Move over Miss Marple, there’s a new sleuth in town! Meet Eleanor Swift: distinguished adventurer, dog lover, dignified lady…daring detective? 

    England, 1920. Eleanor Swift has spent the last few years travelling the world: taking tea in China, tasting alligators in Peru, escaping bandits in Persia and she has just arrived in England after a chaotic 45-day flight from South Africa. Chipstone is about the sleepiest town you could have the misfortune to meet. And to add to these indignities - she’s now a Lady. 

    Lady Eleanor, as she would prefer not to be known, reluctantly returns to her uncle’s home, Henley Hall. Now Lord Henley is gone, she is the owner of the cold and musty manor. What’s a girl to do? Well, befriend the household dog, Gladstone, for a start, and head straight out for a walk in the English countryside, even though a storm is brewing....

    But then, from the edge of a quarry, through the driving rain, Eleanor is shocked to see a man shot and killed in the distance. Before she can climb down to the spot, the villain is gone and the body has vanished. With no victim and the local police convinced she’s stirring up trouble, Eleanor vows to solve this affair by herself. And when her brakes are mysteriously cut, one thing seems sure: someone in this quiet country town has Lady Eleanor Swift in their murderous sights....

    If you enjoy witty dialogue, glamorous intrigue, and the very best of Golden Age mysteries, then you will adore Verity Bright’s whodunit, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, T E Kinsey, and Downton Abbey!

    Not very convincing

    Elena behaves more like a petulant child or teenager in the middle of puberty than a young woman who,has travelled the world and mastered adventures in different parts of the world. When she arrives at the hall after her uncle died she does not even ask what he had died. She is incredibly gullible. The way she speaks stresses her immaturity.
    I am not quite sure whether the story is supposed to be a traditional crime story or a satire, making fun of those traditional gems of Agatha Christie and others.

    viel zu langatmig

    Alles in allem ein wirklich netter Cosy-Krimi. Aber viiiiiiiiiel zu zäh und langatmig. Ich habe nach sechs Stunden, während denen immer wieder Offensichtliches wiederholt wurde, aufgegeben.
