A Christmas Party is a classic mystery. Perfect for fans of Mystery in White by J Jefferson Farjeon.

Also published as Envious Casca.

It is no ordinary Christmas at Lexham Manor. And the mood is anything but festive.

Six holiday guests find themselves the suspects in a murder inquiry when the old Scrooge who owns the substantial estate, Nathaniel Herriard, is found stabbed in the back.

Whilst the delicate matter of inheritance could be the key to this crime, the real conundrum is how any of the suspects could have entered the locked room to commit this atrocity.

For Inspector Hemingway of Scotland Yard, the investigation is complicated by the fact that every guest is hiding something – throwing all of their testimonies into question and casting suspicion far and wide...

About the Author:

Author of over fifty books, GEORGETTE HEYER is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, making the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Famous for her historical novels, she also wrote twelve highly acclaimed mystery novels. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.

Review:

"The wittiest of detective writers" * Daily Mail * "Heyer's characterisation and dialogue are an abiding delight to me . . . I have seldom met people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word Go." -- Dorothy L. Sayers "A writer of great wit and style . . . I've read her books to ragged shreds." * Daily Telegraph * "Rarely have we seen humour and mystery so perfectly blended." * New York Times * "We had better start ranking her alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey and Allingham." * San Francisco Chronicle *
