Overview

Murder at Madingley Grange by Caroline Graham

Simon Hannford is in need of some fast money, and murder seems the obvious solution. Specifically, a 1930s Murder Mystery Weekend, to be held at Madingly Grange, his aunt's superbly hideous gothic mansion. Simon and his sister are meant to be house-sitting, but surely Aunt Maude would not begrudge them the chance to earn a few nearly honest shekels. Simon's grand plans quickly go awry, beginning with the guests'each one dottier than the last'and moving on to the staff, hired on the cheap and with larcenous plans of their own. And when an actual body turns up, Simon's charade of detection is suddenly forced to begin in earnest.

Delightful tale of a money making plan gone very wrong. Excellent read!

Almost anyone who enjoys the slower pace of Midsomer Murders will most likely enjoy this book as well. Graham's writing style is different. She is very, very methodical in the descriptions of people and places. Stephen King can tell twice as much in half the words. However, King is American and Graham is English. Therein lies the difference. It is a slow-moving book, but don't let that deter you. In fact some may prefer it. Once the all the characters are introduced it picks up nicely and ends well.

I love the Barnaby series so bought this one on the strength of the author. In the future I will stick to series titles. It was kind of clever, but not of the quality of the Barnaby books.
