The Unfinished Clue

The Unfinished Clue

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.

My only quibble. (view spoiler)[ It is Heyer. So there was a romance. Heyer just can’t help herself. (hide spoiler)]

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.
