Overview

From the author of The Gone-Away World and the forthcoming Angelmaker—an exhilarating espionage murder-mystery eShort.

There has been a strange death in the quiet village of Shrewton: old Donny Caspian has lost his head. In the Copper Kettle tea rooms, Tom Rice, a junior nobody from the Treasury, puzzles over the details of the case. He has been sent by his superiors to oversee the investigation, but is he supposed to help or hinder? At the next table, octogenarian superspy Edie Banister nibbles a slice of cake and struggles not to become Miss Marple. But what is the connection between the two? Who killed Donny Caspian, and why?

Taking in Rice's present and Edie's daring past, from duels on shipboard to death in back alleys, “Edie Investigates” is a superb short story from the incomparable Nick Harkaway.
 
Also included with this short, the first chapter of Nick Harkaway's long-awaited new novel Angelmaker.

Very enjoyable - Edie is a great character, glad to see she is in Angelmaker (when i finished this story,I went out and bought that one too). Dry British humor, good plotting and great action. Well written and engrossing story. Looking forward to reading more by this author!

I honestly am very sneeky and secretive. I have a secret identity, (see above) and if my friends weren't so giddy about it, no body would know. I have solved many mystery books before l even finished, such as 'The Kidnapping of Christina Lattimore'. I have also read a bit of 'Sherlock Holmes'. Description: completely black she cat, with blue eyes that are very, very dark. So dark, they almost match her pelt. Extra long silver whiskers.
