doc ´ The Unfinished Clue ☆ Georgette Heyer Nated his wife her sister his house guests his wayward son even a desperate friend Of course his attentions t Oh this was so good Witty fun and completely engagingEntering Georgette Heyer's magical world of Regency romances was one darn good decision I made but branching out and trying some of her mysteries is definitely one as well The characters might not be uite so loveable the dialogue perhaps not as hilarious and there might not be as many clothing description and everyday details but on the other hand there is suspense secrets and the wonderful 1930's English country house atmosphere Clever dialogue and eccentric characters who all had a motive for hating and murdering the victim are at the heart of this clever mystery There isn't much action and it's not spooky like Footsteps in the Dark but I guarantee it will keep you highly entertained and guessing until the last minute I had my suspicions but I was totally unable to guess all the particulars and I loved the feeling of being held on the edge of my seat until the last chapter When General Sir Arthur Billington Smith is found stabbed to death in his study it raises a lot of suspicion and a lot of uestions Any number of people could have done the deed but who actually did it? His meek tired young wife who’s had enough of being brow beaten at every turn? Stephen Guest who has been in love with her for years? Geoffrey the disinherited son who seemed to me to be unstable of mind the whole time? La Lola la Diva who drove everybody batty ok me? The very correct butler? Camilla Halliday who only came over to flirt with the General? Her jealous husband Basil? Or could it be someone else from outside? The Unfinished Clue had me wondering “WHO IS IT??” the entire time and as soon as I thought maybe I’d found the culprit something happened to throw my suspicions off a new track was embarked on by the detective and I was left guessing once again I strongly recommend it it’s splendidly written and so cleverly conceived Buddy read with Christina D
