A VINTAGE MURDER MYSTERY
Rediscover Gladys Mitchell – one of the 'Big Three' female crime fiction writers alongside Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers.
Margaret Clifton remembers the childhood summers spent with her brother and her uncles and aunts, exploring the village of Hill and studying the eccentric villagers. She remembers one particular summer, the summer of the Fair, when she discovered a grave-shaped hole in the floor of a run-down shack, and soon after a girl was found dead. The well-known detective Mrs Bradley came to investigate, and it became a summer no-one would forget.
Opinionated, unconventional, unafraid... If you like Poirot and Miss Marple, you’ll love Mrs Bradley.
Completely individual, instantly recognisable and highly enjoyable
Mrs Lestrange Bradley...is by far the best and most vital English female detective
If a relaxing diversion is of the essence for a good holiday, a Gladys Mitchell novel is a must
