The story, set in the 1930's English countryside, introduces Drew Farthering as the gentleman "detective" trying to solve the murders of his mother, step-father, and a cad named "Lincoln". Drew and his buddy, Nick, are both charming, well-mannered, chivalrous, and quite funny. Drew's love interest, the spunky Madeline Parker, also happens to be his step-father's niece from America whom he meets at the beginning of the book.
Although I had an idea at start of the story that one of the victims was not actually a victim at all, the book really took some twists and turns and was not the predictable story I had first feared it to be. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised...by everything.
After reading many secular mysteries, I must say that I truly enjoyed a great story that didn't get caught up in gore, sex, and/or vulgar language, and would highly recommend this to any mystery-lover who is ready for an entertaining tale.
I for one am looking forward to the next Drew Farthering escapade!
