They Found Him Dead is another Heyer mystery. Like the others I've read so far, it was an English country house murder mystery, in which there's a relatively small number of suspects, and the characters are likeable. Hannasyde and Hemingway are the detectives in this one.

I got suspicious of the culprit long before any of the characters, and spent the last third of the book yelling "WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SUSPECTS THIS GUY?!?" I was a little disappointed that I was so far ahead of the characters - usually, I'm slightly ahead, right there with them, or behind (I'm not particularly good at figuring out whodunits).

Overall, another decent whodunit. Not an exemplar of the genre, by any means, but not bad, either.
