Classic mystery from the late 40s, country house, mysterious strangers, amateur detective, missing will.
  ritaer | Oct 6, 2016 |
The murder in question is that of Sir Harry Wye by his stepson,Oliver de Bellew. There is overwhelming proof of de Bellew's guilt in the form of a photograph which shows the one in the act of shooting the other ! An amateur (very amateur) detective,one James Flint sets out to prove de Bellow innocent and to find the true murderer. In this is is joined by a number of disparate characters.
Not a very thrilling read I'm afraid,in truth rather tedious. ( )

The Coles were distinguished social historians. They should have stuck to that, and not tried to write a mystery. ( )

James Flint, having finished the dreary task of dealing with a large pile of neglected correspondence, heaved a sigh of relief, pitched the last of the answered letters on top of a miscellaneous heap of papers in the fender, and drew a comfortable arm-chair up to the fire.
