Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed an E.C.R. Lorac book from the Golden Age of Mysteries, especially for its use of sheep country in Lancashire as a key component of the story.

Chief Inspector MacDonald is visiting friends and considering perhaps purchasing a farm for his retirement years when he gets involved in investigating a residential arson which resulted in a death and sheep stealing.

This is a book with tremendous (and beautiful) description and a leisurely pace (and I don't mean this as a criticism, it's one of the book's strengths). A Lorac book is always a treasure, a book to be savored. I'm so thankful that the British Library Crime Classics brings back such excellent old mysteries.

Highly recommended!!

(I received a copy of the book from the publisher, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.)

mystery revolves around setting in Lancashire - this would be worth adding to Library because of historical references to Church, school, and general community welfare in relation to wills and testaments
esp pp 29, 92, 112 - Little Gidding again, 116,
