Mystery in White by J Jefferson Farjeon

'The horror on the train, great though it may turn out to be, will not compare with the horror that exists here, in this house.'

On Christmas Eve, heavy snowfall brings a train to a halt near the village of Hemmersby. Several passengers take shelter in a deserted country house, where the fire has been lit and the table laid for tea – but no one is at home.

Trapped together for Christmas, the passengers are seeking to unravel the secrets of the empty house when a murderer strikes in their midst. This classic Christmas mystery is now republished for the first time since the 1930s, with an introduction by the award-winning crime writer Martin Edwards.

Witty mystery that wears its age with limited success.

I really enjoyed this book, much more than I expected. It was easy, quick reading with interesting characters, evocative atmosphere and an unusual plot. Lot of fun, I highly recommend as a light “escape” novel
