Mystery - Copyright 1936

A very clever and entertaining mystery. When Mr. Matthews, wealthy head of the family, is found murdered by poison, his relatives (most of whom live in his mansion) seem to each have plenty of motive.

As the dead man's constantly quarrelsome family await the outcome of the investigation, they bicker and insult each other with wickedly sharp tongues. Most of the family -- both young and old -- are pretty dislikeable, but not so that it interferes with the story's enjoyment.

It's great that a mystery written in 1936 holds up perfectly well in 2009! This is my first Heyer mystery, and I'll definitely be reading more of her.

I did read a Heyer romance recently, The Venetian, and enjoyed that as well.
