Tragedy befalls the Carter family following an eventful visit from a Russian prince and a scandalous blackmail letter

The superlatively analytical Inspector Hemingway is confronted by a murder that seems impossible – no one was near the murder weapon at the time the shot was fired. Everyone on the scene seems to have a motive, not to mention the wherewithal to commit murder, and alibis that simply don't hold up.

The inspector is sorely tried by a wide variety of suspects, including the neglected widow, the neighbor who's in love with her, her resentful daughter, and a patently phony Russian prince preying on the widow's emotional vulnerability and social aspirations. And then there's the blackmail plot that may – or may not – be at the heart of the case.

The third last novel in my 2011 Heyer mysteries reading project, this is neither my favourite nor my least favourite of these novels. I'll start with what I liked about it. As with all of Heyer's mysteries - and most of her other n...

Buddy read with Kim :-).A lighthearted cosy mystery full of wonderfully eccentric people, high drama, red herrings and a very clever 'howdunit.' Definitely keeps you guessing to the end. Not your usual detective novel, but great fun all the same.
