Booklist Reviews 2011 March #1

American expat Dorothy Martin, married to retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, finds herself in the middle of a classic Agatha Christie plot when she and her husband are invited to spend the weekend at a restored country mansion. Expecting to enjoy the Guy Fawkes Day festivities and the company of friends, they instead get caught in a terrible storm that destroys the estate's gardens and traps everyone at the house, without power or communication. While trying to clean up and reconnect with the world, Dorothy and Alan manage to find several bodies in varying states of decomposition. They realize that the murderer is probably one of the guests and that they must preserve the evidence and protect everyone until the police can arrive. Fans of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers will enjoy this very traditional British cozy, complete with an eccentric group of guests and some devoted servants. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.

Dorothy Martin, with her recent knee replacements, doesn't move as fast as she used to in Dams's stately 10th mystery to feature the retired American schoolteacher living in England (after 2004's Winter of Discontent). Dorothy and her retired chief constable husband, Alan Nesbit, join friends at a restored Kent abbey, now a country house with all the modern conveniences, to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day. Unfortunately, a major storm casts a pall on the house party—and blows over an oak tree that reveals a human skeleton tangled in its roots. The discovery in a secret room of a mummy—a desiccated female body whose clothes date from the mid–20th century—adds to the intrigue. Fans of traditional English mysteries should be satisfied.
