Wealthy Lord Charlton decides to alter his will, leaving everything to his missing nephew whom he hasn't seen since the boy was a baby. Simon Warwick was adopted after his parents were killed in an Air Raid, and taken to America as a one-year-old. But no one knows the name of his parents, where he is now, or what his new name is. It seems almost impossible to find him, and when Lord Charlton dies before the missing heir can be found, his lawyer is stuck.

But 2 men show up, each claiming to be the...more
This was the first Patricia Moyes book I read, many years ago, and while I love it, I would recommend others not read it until they've read other Henry Tibbett mysteries. Henry and Emmy are the stars of Moyes' body of work, but the perspective this novel is written in does not allow the reader to get to know them the way the others do. The final solution will come as a surprise to the reader, which is part of why I love it. (view spoiler)...more
A pretty decent British murder mystery. A rich and dying uncle decides to try to locate his nephew, who was adopted as an infant, and leave his fortune to him rather than leave the money to charity as he had previously willed. So the search is on for the nephew, 2 claimants come forward and one is murdered. So "who done it?" is the question, along with the crux of the book; who is the nephew, Simon Warwick? The answer may surprise you.
