about

This 1951 mystery takes place at an English estate, Warbeck Hall, over Christmas. The elderly Lord Warbeck has been ill, and visiting are Dr. Bottwink (who is researching the Warbeck papers), Julius Warbeck (Chancellor of the Exchequer, cousin to Lord Warbeck and Roger his Scotland Yard protector), Robert Warbeck (the son and heir), Lady Camilla Prendergast (possibly in love with Robert), Mrs Carstairs (married to Julius' second in command), and of course the butler, Briggs. Then the first murder occurs. Meanwhile, there is a terrible snowstorm and all are captives in the house and the police can't get there. Roger takes charge, and Bottwink does some sleuthing. All of the guests could have motive and be the culprit. A good old fashioned English mystery.

Cyril Hare was the pseudonym of Alfred Alexander Gordon Clark who was an Engligh judge and crime writer. He chose his pen name as a mixture of Hare Court, where he worked in Roland Oliver's chambers, and Cyril Mansions, Battersea, where he made his home after marriage. His novels featured two main investigators, Francis Pettigrew--who was a barrister--and Inspector Mallett--a large police office with a huge appetite. He wrote nine detective novels which were published from 1937 to 1958.
