    The superlatively analytical Inspector Hemingway is confronted by a murder that seems impossible - no one was near the murder weapon at the time the shot was fired. Everyone on the scene seems to have a motive, not to mention the wherewithal to commit murder, and alibis that simply don't hold up.

    A Crime in 3 Acts!

    This is the 1st in the Inspector Hemmingway novels & it starts of rather dully to be honest, but because it's Georgette Heyer, one has to persist. And..Show More »

    A holiday party takes on a sinister aspect when the colourful assortment of guests discovers there is a killer in their midst. The owner of the substantial estate, that old Scrooge Nathaniel Herriard, is found stabbed in the back. While the delicate matter of inheritance could be the key to this crime, the real conundrum is how any of the suspects could have entered a locked room to commit the foul deed.

    Meet the ultimate in 'Locked Door' murder

    I used to read Georgette Heyer's mysteries when I was a child. So I'd obviously read this one before, but this was like it was the 1st time. The chara..Show More »

    Inspector Hemingway has his work cut out for him when a seemingly civilised game of Duplicate Bridge leads to a double murder. The crimes seem identical, but were they carried out by the same hand? Things become even more complicated when the fiancée of the inspector's young friend, Timothy Kane, becomes Hemingway's prime suspect. Kane is determined to prove the lady's innocence - but when he begins digging into her past, he finds it's more than a little bit shady.

    Accents, pronunciation and Scottish

    I've listened to a few Georgette Heyer books, they are always well written. UNFORTUNATELY, read by Ulli Birvé. I think I'm started to get used to her,..Show More »

    Slumped on a seat under an oak tree is old Sampson Warrenby, with a bullet through his head. Everybody in the village is ready to tell Chief Inspector Hemingway who did it. Could the murderer have been the dead man's niece? Or perhaps it was the other town solicitor? The couple at the farm had a guilty secret - what was it? And why is it someone else actually wants to be the prime suspect? Add to this the fact that Warrenby was blackmailing someone, and Hemingway has his work cut out for him.

    Dreadful narration

    I read and enjoyed these stories many years ago and so looked forward to listening to them, however, the narration is so bad I could not listen to the..Show More »
