The Unfinished Clue by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Could there be any greater happiness for a Heyer devotee to discover a book of hers that you haven’t read – one that is actually excellent!
Ok, I have come back to earth now. I powered through the book in less than 24 hours.
Believe anyone that tells you this is the best GH mystery – it quite definitely is!
It has everything I want in a murder mystery – a loathsome victim, a colourful cast of characters, most of whom have plenty of motives to kill the unlovely General Sir Arthur Billington-Smith. Just when I was reading, smugly thinking I had guessed the solution – there is The Twist. & she twists again. Wow.
Heyer in this mystery proves the equal of my personal big three in Golden Age mysteries – Christie, Sayers and Tey. Read it. I know I’m right.
