Overview

A Victorian murder mystery that's woven around a murder that really happened.

Lord Charles Danvers, still in mourning for his lost love Charlotte, hopes to find escape from his ghosts at the country estate of his oldest friend Sir John Boileau. The events surrounding the coming of age of Sir John's son and heir have much of Norfolk astir-until the peace of an autumn evening is shattered by a brutal murder.

The police are quick to point to a quarrelsome farmer, but Lord Danvers has his doubts. As the local magistrate, Sir John has an interest in the investigation.
But is the real connection much closer to home? And does Danvers owe the greater loyalty to an old friend or to the truth?

Then, Danvers is even more unsettled by the entrance of the alluring Lady Antonia Hoover.
The first in the Lord Danvers Mysteries Series, A Most Inconvenient Death is a Victorian true-crime novel. The Stanfield Hall Murders were the sensation they are portrayed to be, the elaborate coming of age celebrations and the ensuing dramatic trial are all recorded history.

    The Delight Is in the Details

    Although I don't make a habit of reading historical fiction, I found Donna Fletcher Crow's "A Most Inconvenient Death" to be a fascinating journey into the daily lives of nineteenth-century British aristocrats and their servants. She did an amazing job of creating believable fictional characters and scenes to embellish the true stories of real-life individuals. Her detailed descriptions, which were seamlessly woven into the story, made the book believable as well as visual in my mind. I could easily picture the character's homes, furniture, clothing, carriages, hairstyles, fields and much more. And I learned about communication methods, sources of entertainment, court procedures, customs and mannerisms of the day. The mysterious deaths of innocent people and disappearances of not-so-innocent people keep the hero-and the reader-guessing. Step-by-step, the author builds confusion, mystery and tension, but not without moments of levity and spiritual insights. All in all, "A Most Inconvenient Death" is a fun, educational read guaranteed to make one contemplate life and death, right and wrong-and how much fun it would be to float over the British countryside in a hot air balloon, sipping champagne and waving to the farmers and hunters below.

    Great Read

    If you enjoy history and a good mystery then this is the book for you. Set in the mid-19th century, Lord Danvers has a talent for solving murder mysteries. As he interviews potential "do-ers" of the crime, we meet people who had a hand in forming Britain's history. No violence; Agatha Christie-type. Nothing trite, either.
