Description

A houseful of people he loathes is not Sir Arthur's worst problem? It should have been a lovely English country-house weekend. But the unfortunate guest-list is enough to exasperate a saint, and the host, Sir Arthur Billington-Smith, is an abusive wretch hated by everyone from his disinherited son to his wife's stoic would-be lover. When Sir Arthur is found stabbed to death, no one is particularly grieved?and no one has an alibi. The unhappy guests fi nd themselves under the scrutiny of Scotland Yard's cool-headed Inspector Harding, who has solved tough cases before?but this time, the talented young inspector discovers much more than he's bargained for. PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER: "Miss Heyer has the delightful talent of blending humor with mystery." Boston Evening Transcript "Heyer is an author to read?this means you!" New York Herald Tribune "Miss Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me...? have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word 'Go.'" Dorothy L. Sayers
