Every single book nowadays, apart from non-fiction, appears to be part of a larger series and Clara Benson’s The Mystery at Underwood House is no exception. It is the second part of a ten part series but happily, it stands alone very well and you won’t feel like you’ve missed out if you decide to take the free taste of Clara’s imaginings.
There’s a clear “Agatha Christie” inspiration running through this 1920s whodunnit? A warring family gathers to the reading of a wealthy relative’s will and it seems that someone will stop at nothing to become the sole heir. Will Angela Marchmont discover who the killer is before there’s nobody left to inherit?
