Summary

Summary

Carole Seddon and her bohemian neighbor Jude find that even the cultured can be crass when it comes to murder.

The life of Esmond Chadleigh, noted poet and children’s author, is celebrated in the halls of Bracketts House. Nevertheless, most of Chadleigh’s work remains out of print, which leaves Bracketts House out of funds. An American literature professor with a big interest in Chadleigh can keep Bracketts running, in exchange for assistance on her biography of Chadleigh. But the mistrustful trustees are afraid the biographer is interested only in rooting out the skeletons in Chadleigh’s closet—especially after uncovering one in his garden. Now, Carole and Jude must risk tarnishing the sterling reputation of a beloved author to learn whether his sword was mightier than his pen.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In Brett’s fourth chatty, genteel Fethering mystery...Brett provides a shocking revelation or two at the end to bring a proper ending to a proper story. Publisher's Weekly
“Highly recommended for all [who are] interested in cozy cottage mysteries…Brett is a master of the genre.” Library Journal
“The latest in Brett's Fethering mysteries involves the discovery of a skeleton buried ninety years ago and a murder that occurs during the course of the novel.” Audiofile
“Brett delivers a deft mixture of history-mystery and contemporary thriller in this latest installment in his Fethering series starring the prickly, fiftysomething amateur sleuth, Carole Sedden...Brett, who sends up backstage backbiting in his Charles Paris theatrical mysteries, applies the same caustic wit to the desperate gamesmanship of board meetings and village politics...The contemporary murder is a feat of planning, a sort of mirror image of the locked-room puzzle in which the killing takes place in the open air, with Sedden walking right next to the victim. Another marvelous mix of social satire and traditional cozy. Booklist
