Why Shoot a Butler? by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read on Kindle.
This was a Kindle deal last week, and I like Heyer and have only previously read and enjoyed one of her mysteries (Envious Casca), so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did.
A fun traipse through the British countryside (despite the murders) with twists and turns that the explanation make plausible. Mr. Amberley is a wonderful main character detective (if abrasive at times) ... rich, knowing, and piecing together scraps of information to a logical deduction. It was a gripping read from the beginning - stumbling upon a murder; referencing a past involvement of Amberley with the police. I'd like to find out more about that ... and whether there are others with Amberley as a character.
If you like mysteries, I'd recommend this one as delightful, light reading.
I posted a quote yesterday for Wordy Wednesday.
