Meet the Matthews... before the next one dies

It's no ordinary morning at the Poplars—the master is found dead in his bed, and it seems his high blood pressure was not the cause. When an autopsy reveals a sinister poison in his body, it's up to the quietly resourceful Inspector Hannasyde to catch the murderer in time to spare the next victim. But every single member of the quarrelsome Matthews family has a motive and none, of course, has an alibi.

"The ingredients are so well and carefully mixed, the writing is so bright, and the solution so unexpected that the book achieves success and remains one no reader can fail to enjoy."—Manchester Guardian

"A marvelous mélange of malice, murder, mystery, and mirth. Priceless!"—Saturday Review

Experience Georgette Heyer's sparkling dialogue in one of her most popular mysteries.

Delightful country house mystery from the queen of romance who displays her talent as a very versatile writer. The characters are sharply drawn and full of the vagaries of human foibles - in other words they are a hoot! And the story is deftly portrayed. This proves that the Golden Age of Mysteries was very aptly named.
