Review by

Sampson Warrenby is not liked in the village, he is ambitious and greedy so there are plenty of suspects when he is discovered shot dead in his garden. This is an ingenious murder mystery from Heyer with several read herrings and a satisfying conclusion, plus several well-observed and funny exchanges of dialogue. Bliss!
