Death of a Cosy Writer : perfect for fans of M. C. Beaton Paperback / softback

Part of the The St. Just Mysteries series

Paperback / softback


A family reunion and medieval-style murder? Ever so inconvenient. Cosily ensconced in his eighteenth-century Cambridgeshire manor, bestselling mystery writer Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk delights in tormenting his four grown children with threats of disinheritance.

Then he announces his latest blow - he's engaged to Violet, a beautiful widow with a dubious past. Money-driven panic soon sets in among the backstabbing brood when eldest son and appointed heir, Ruthven, turns up dead in the wine cellar.

Who will win the inheritance sweepstakes? It's a house full of suspicion, greed, vengeful malice - and ample motives for murder.

Can Detective Chief Inspector St. Just nab the killer before another heir lands in the family burial plot?Praise for G.M.
