About the Author:

Gladys Maude Winifred Mitchell - or `The Great Gladys' as Philip Larkin called her - was born in 1901, in Cowley in Oxfordshire. She graduated in history from University College London and in 1921 began her long career as a teacher. Her hobbies included architecture and writing poetry. She studied the works of Sigmund Freud and her interest in witchcraft was encouraged by her friend, the detective novelist Helen Simpson. Her first novel, Speedy Death, was published in 1929 and introduced readers to Beatrice Adela Lestrange Bradley, the detective heroine of a further sixty six crime novels. She wrote at least one novel a year throughout her career and was an early member of the Detection Club, alongside Agatha Christie, G.K Chesterton and Dorothy Sayers.In 1961 she retired from teaching and, from her home in Dorset, continued to write, receiving the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger in 1976. Gladys Mitchell died in 1983.

Review:

"Mitchell's heroine... interrogates the suspects with razor sharp wit and uncompromising intellect" * Scotsman * "Mitchell piles the characters in right at the beginning, giving us a host of middle-class children, teens and middle-aged scholars, full of authentic slang of the period... She is more intellectually demanding than Christie, less aristocratic than Sayers" -- Lesley McDowell * Herald * "Miss Mitchell is certainly the most perfect and pellucid prose-writer in crime ficiton" -- Edmund Crispin "Gladys Mitchell can always be relied upon for a packed and meaty novel, and an intelligent one at that" * Guardian *
