Read full description of the books:
This is the first of Barnard's Perry Trethowan mysteries. Detective Inspector Trethowan is sent off to his family stately home to lend a hand in the investigation into his father's death - his father having, most embarrassingly, expired in a strappado machine, attired in spangled tights. And the available suspects include Aunt Sybilla (ex set designer), Uncle Lawrence (wheelchair-bound, semi-senile minor poet), Aunt Kate (jolly-hockey-sticks fan of Adolf Hitler), and sister Christobel (utterly wet). These, and a few cousins, are all more or less at daggers drawn, and Perry can't stand most of them.
This is one of Barnard's better mysteries; it has clues and counter-clues and plenty of motives and a convoluted but thoroughly satisfying denoument. Plus, of course, his usual excellent characters and wry humour.
