Description

A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERYRediscover Gladys Mitchell - one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L.

Sayers. Alastair Bing's guests gather around his dining table at Chaynings, a charming country manor.

But one seat, belonging to the legendary explorer Everard Mountjoy, remains empty.

When the other guests search the house, a body is discovered in a bath, drowned.

The body is that of a woman, but could the corpse in fact be Mountjoy?

A peculiar and sinister sequence of events has only just begun... This is Gladys Mitchell's first book and it marks the entrance of the inimitable Mrs Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley, psychoanalyst and unorthodox amateur sleuth, into the world of detective fiction.

But instead of leading the police to the murderer, she begins as their chief suspect.
