Book description
This is Dornford Yates' only 'straight' detective novel. Set in Wainscot Hall, a nursing home run by a convent, it concerns the death of Lord St. Amant, formerly the Hon. Joris Eyot. The investigation is undertaken by Superintendent Falcon, with the help of his friends Richard Chandos and Jonathan Mansel, and dealing as it does with nursing nuns and their patients, has to be carried out with extreme delicacy. The book reveals Yates' supreme talent for strong characters and a page-turning plot. For traditional tale-telling at its best, look no further.
