review á Death in the Stocks E they pulling his leg or were they deliberately tricking him The uestion is who in this family is clever enough to get away with murderOne cousin allies himself with the inspector while the victim's half brother and sister each of whom suspects the other markedly try to set him off the scent Hannasyde's consummate powers of detection and solicitor Giles Carrington's amateur sleuthing are tested to their limits With the second murder the inspector gave up in despair admitting that the family was too much for him It must be someone attractive Inspector Hannasyde kept telling himself in one of his most puzzling cases ever The solution to the baffling though perfectly plausible crimes comes through other channels and as a distinct surpris. Georgette Heyer is a writer I keep meaning to read of In the past I ve enjoyed a couple of her Regency romances most recently listening to one of the audiobooks read by Richard Armitage but this is the first time I ve tried one of her mysteriesThe style of writing seems uite similar to that of her Regency novels with a lot of witty dialogue and larger than life characters The story is also laced with romance Although this is the first in the Inspector Hannasyde series I d have to say that uiet professional Hannasyde is totally overshadowed by glamorous amateur detective Giles Carrington who has hints of Wimsey or Campion about himAs the title suggests the book starts with a man s body being found in the stocks on a village green The victim Arnold Vereker soon turns out to have been a thoroughly unpopular character who had a weekend cottage nearby The action soon moves to London where Arnold s younger h

review á Death in the Stocks The moonlight shone on the uiet village green when an English bobbie returning from night patrol finds on a man's two motionless feet stuck through the holes of a pair of stocks He identifies the corpse in evening dress immediately Wealthy Andrew Vereker was not a well loved man and when he was found stabbed no one seemed to be particularly disturbed The resourceful Inspector Hannasyde found nothing unusual in the murder until he met the Vereker heirs The Vereker family are corrupt and eccentric and hardly cooperative Every member of his eccentric family had a motive money Was it his half sister Antonia whose marriage he had forbidden or Rudolph her embezzling lover Could it have been Arnold's half brother Kenneth heir apparent or perh. Georgette Heyer is best remembered today as having been virtually the inventor of the Regency Romance genre but she also wrote a dozen or so detective novels Her fourth detective novel was Death in the Stocks published in 1935A man is found stabbed to death in the middle of the night in the stocks in the village suare His name is Arnold Vereker Superintendent Hannasyde will face a number of problems in solving this case not the least of them being that everybody who knew Arnold Vereker had an excellent motive for wanting to murder him Even worse not one of the suspects has an alibiAn even bigger problem will be the Vereker family To say they are eccentrics is putting it mildly Both Arnold s half sister Antonia and his half brother Kenneth are not only delighted he is dead they are absolutely thrilled to be considered suspects Antonia is engaged to be married to Rudolph Mesurier who also had a very str

review á Death in the Stocks Aps it was the delectable beauty Violet Williams And then there was Roger his dead brother who appeared right after the murder Narrowing down the suspects is not going to be an easy job The problem the inspector had to face was whether these four were the charming intelligent though perfectly infuriating people they seemed to be or whether they were cunning than any murder suspects he had ever encountered They seemed to enjoy being suspects which they logically were and in proving to him how easy both in deed and in fact it would have been for any one of them to have killed Vereker They delighted in tying nooses around each other's necks in laying false trails in annoying the police and a side issue in driving the inspector frantic Wer. I was in the mood for this book after having started it sometime last year and really enjoying the first few chapters Unfortunately the first few chapters are the best part of the book but fortunately the rest is uite good too though I ve read better The murder in the stocks of Arnold Vereker sparks a series of hilariously convoluted conversations among his eccentric family members who all had motive and opportunity to murder him and all seem eager to show how cleverly they each could have contrived his murder The Verekers were entertaining without being likeable and overall the story was pleasant to follow if a little slow It pretty much consists only of conversations between various people and while the wit level is cranked up to eleven from the beginning the plot was definitely stagnant towards the middle at which point I correctly guessed the culprit and kept on reading puzzled that the detective wa

    (E–pub/Pdf) Death in the Stocks By Georgette Heyer Though billed as a mystery this book is mostly a serious of long arguments between uppercrust albeit bohemian assholes The Inspector for whom this is supposedly the first book in a series scarcely features and does not solve the crime It's odd It's also got its fair share of racist nattering about dark foreigners while at the same time being highly in favor of cousins marrying This is the type of book that makes one wor
