  • Written in 1956, it has all the elements of a classic British mystery. A village  ( Ferncross),an eccentric amateur sleuth, upper middle class villagers and a mysterious derelict manor house where death happens rather to often whenever a light appears in one of the rooms. This village definitely has some murky secrets.I must say that the end was somewhat of a suprise  ( but a good one! )Especially recommended for fans of British murder mysteries.
