"Death By The Book," by Julianna Deerin

"Death By The Book," by Julianna Deering



Drew Farthering wanted nothing more than to end the summer of 1932 with the announcement of his engagement. Instead, he finds himself caught up in another mysterious case when the family solicitor is found murdered, an antique hatpin with a cryptic message, Advice to Jack, piercing his chest.

Evidence of secret meetings and a young girl's tearful confession point to the victim's double life, but what does the solicitor's murder have to do with the murder of a physician on the local golf course? Nothing, it would seem--except for another puzzling note, affixed with a similar-looking bloodied hatpin.

Soon the police make an arrest in connection with the murders, but Drew isn't at all certain they have the right suspect in custody. And why does his investigation seem to be drawing him closer and closer to home?


Another book in the Drew Farthering Mystery series and once again a real "whodunit."  If you read this book you MUST tell me if you figure out who the murderer is as I for one was totally puzzled by it all.  The book has so many twists and turns in with surprises around every corner. You think it is one person and then something happens and you think someone else did it.
  
It's a very "British" book in the way it is written and the way everything is described.  It does transform you back to the 1930's.  When you finally find out who is behind the murders you will be completely surprised; and even more surprised as to why the murders happened.

Stars out of 5 : 4  A good book but I find the whole upper and lower class thing in Britain a tad annoying and I'm British born!!!  Well worth the read though just to see if you can figure it all out.........I bet you can't!!
