Description
Lord Burford has some misgivings about hosting another house party at Alderley, his beautiful country mansion, in this follow-up to The Affair of the Bloodstained Egg Cozy and The Affair of the Mutilated Mink. After all, those previous two events could at best be described as disastrous. But with family members traveling down for the late Honourable Mrs. Florence Saunders's funeral, the Earl really has no choice. No one takes much notice when one of the inheritors claims she knows a secret that could ruin the others—until her lifeless body is found.

"A shamelessly affectionate send-up of those classic house-party mysteries of the 1930s which at the same time manages to pay homage to the Golden Age of detective fiction."—Denver Post

"Alderley, the 17th-century country house of the Earl of Burford, provides the setting for Anderson's third 1930s madcap mystery. The somewhat batty earl ... immediately calls the doctor and the police and is somewhat relieved when Detective Chief Inspector Wilkins arrives, yet again. To complicate matters, Lady Geraldine, the earl's headstrong daughter, is determined to be the first to solve the mystery. With a cast that includes an MP, a King's Counsel and his ditzy blonde daughter, a ne'er-do-well nephew and, of course, the butler Merryweather, Anderson has created the perfect group for a delightful romp. And romp they do through a lighthearted tale of family feuds, practical jokes, lies and a myriad of tantalizing clues sure to entertain anyone who enjoys traditional puzzlers."—Publishers Weekly
