The Act of Roger Murgatroyd
Boxing Day circa 1935. A Christmas party at a snowed-in manor on the edge of Dartmoor. Overhead, in the attic, lies the dead body of Raymond Gentry, gossip columnist and blackmailer, shot through the heart. But the attic door is locked from the inside, its sole window is traversed by thick iron bars, and, naturally, there is no sign of a murderer or a murder weapon.
"A classic whodunit with a period country-house setting, a cast of equally suspect characters, not one but two apparently unfathomable murders and an ingenious solution."
"A witty homage to Agatha Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and a clever literary send-up of Golden Age detective fiction."
