Another Little Christmas Murder (Paperback)Lorna Nicholl Morgan (author)
- In stock
Winter had descended upon Yorkshire with startling coldness that year, bringing with it the threat of frozen pipes and farms and hamlets cut off from their neighbours, for a heavy fall of snow lay everywhere, burying the smaller hills and making the lonelier tracks impassable.
A classic country house mystery republished for the first time in nearly seventy years.
When Dilys Hughes finds herself snowbound in the middle of a bleak and lonely stretch of Yorkshire, she has no option but to accept help from passing motorist Inigo Brown, who is on his way to visit his uncle.
Arriving at his uncle's remote country house, Wintry Wold, the couple encounters a less than warm welcome from Inigo's new young aunt, Theresa. Why is she reluctant to let Inigo see his uncle, and is he really as ill as they are told?
As the snowstorm brings more stranded strangers to their door, Dilys starts to realise that all is not as it seems at Wintry Wold. When the morning brings news of the death of Inigo's uncle, Dilys sets out to investigate - was it a natural death, or was it murder?
Perfect for fans of Murder at the Old Vicarage and Partners in Crime this is just the sort of murder to settle down with as Christmas nears, a drop of something warm with just the right prickling of poison.
