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. Ah, the confidence of youth! 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, deprived of actual life, Simon's charade of detection is suddenly forced to begin in earnest. An ingenious plot and excellent characters . . . well written, witty, and elegantly plotted - The Guardian (UK) Splendid . . . a book not to be missed! - Denver Post Extracts maximum fun from the genre - Sunday Times (London)… (mere)

A brother and sister are left in charge of their rich aunt's estate. They choose to make money by inviting guests to a mystery weekend at the estate leading to a lightly amusing story that was, unfortunately, not particularly interesting and was rather disappointing. ( )

Good read - quite enjoyed it.

Back Cover Blurb:
When Simon Hannaford is left temporarily in charge of his aunt's 20-bedroom Gothic pile he knows he must be able to make a profit from it somehow. Murder, he decides, is the only way to do it. For Madingley Grange is the perfect venue for a 1930's mystery weekend and , before long, he and his long-suffering sister have set the stage for money-spinning mayhem.
From the conservatory to the contents of the claret cellar the clues are sprinkled like pot-pourri and the hired retainers Gaunt and Bennet provide the finishing touch. But, when the guests arrive it is obvious that the business of murder is bound to run off course. For neither Derek , who refuses to relinquish his deerstalker, nor Mrs Gibbs, a card-sharping grandmother, nor Gillette, the 30's fiend complete with ukelele, nor any of the other ill-assorted bunch is happy to play the victim. And when a body does appear, it hardly takes a Hercule Poirot to guess it is not a volunteer. The game of detection must begin in earnest.... ( )

If you love British Country House Murder Mysteries, look no further, if you are looking for madcap, you have found it - in the best tradition of P.G. Wodehouse. Viva Caroline Graham!
