A quick murder mystery that keeps you engaged
This story starts with a murder of a village person, who is well known but not liked, set not long after WW2. The story progresses well and it is a cosy mystery which is easy to read. A. H Richardson is a good author who creates suspense well and some soft humour added to the story too.
At under 300 pages, this book is nice and small and should be quick to read. Mr Hazlitt and Mr Brandon fill the storyline well by being amateur detectives. It is fun and light-hearted, plus their investigations into various character throughout the story are easy to read.
The story progresses well because it is separated into small easy-to-read chapters and in 3rd person except in speech. The murderer was found at the end of the book and summed up well and professionally. I didn’t guess who the murderer was until it was revealed on the last 5 pages. I liked the ending and thought it was handled nicely with an Epilogue
Would I recommend this book? Yes, to people who like short, easy, enjoyable mysteries.
