'There we were, all gathered together for a Christmas party, and plunged suddenly into gloom.' It's Christmas at Hampstead's Beresford Lodge. A group of relatives and intimate friends gather to celebrate the festive season, but their party is rudely interrupted by a violent death. It isn't long before a second body is discovered. Can the murderer be one of those in the great house? The stockbroker sleuth Malcolm Warren investigates, in this brilliantly witty mystery. 'Kitchin's knowledge of the crevices of human nature lifts his crime fiction out of the category of puzzledom and into the realm of the detective novel. He was, in short, ahead of his day.' H. R. F. Keating

All my favourite ingredients for a good ol' crime tale – a manor house, a cornucopia of guests, an amateur sleuth, grisly murders and a vast array of suspects.

I raced through this. Once the first, grim death... More

“A darn good read!”

This is one to curl up on the sofa with, preferably when the weather is foul. Turn the telly off and immerse yourself in another time, when the police all came from Scotland Yard, and breakfast was a leisurely affair... More
