Good old fashioned country house novel which I quite enjoyed. Sort of locked room, suicide or murder mystery. There is a wealthy industrialist with a mysterious past, poor gentlefolk etc. A love interest, a will and most of the other neccessary components of the genre. Not outstanding but fans of these between the wars crime novels like myself will probably quite like it.
