of Drew Farthering

Drew Farthering wants nothing more than to finish out the summer of 1932 with the announcement of his engagement to Madeline Parker. Instead, he finds himself in the middle of another murder case.&The family lawyer has been killed, a cryptic message stuck to the body with an antique hatpin. Drew is content to leave solving this one to the police, but when the dead man's widow asks for his assistance, he can't help but be pulled in.

Life at home is just as troubling. Madeline still hasn't decided whether she will accept his proposal of marriage, and worse, her formidable maiden aunt, Ruth Jansen, appears at Farthering Place with the sole objective of convincing Madeline to return to America.

When a second murder occurs, and another baffling message secured with a hatpin is found at the scene, the village of Farthering St. John is thrown into a tizzy. And it seems Drew and Madeline and their friend, Nick Dennison, are the ones who will have to crack the case before the Hatpin Murderer strikes again.

Solid second in series
4 stars By Iola, Apr 24 2014
I've always enjoyed Agatha Christie novels, as well as Georgette Heyer's 1930's detective romps. They are well-written with clever plots, interesting characters, and their 'contemporary' setting now reads as a delightful step into days gone by (well, delightful except for the body count). We get straight into the mystery when Drew visits his lawyer in nearby Winchester, only to find he has been murdered and left with a cryptic note stuck to him with an antique hatpin. There's no apparent motive, and no suspect. Chief Inspector Birdsong is again in charge of the case-and he doesn't want any help from Drew. However, the lawyer's widow asks Drew to look into the case, and he soon unearths some issues ...the murder mystery was excellent. As usual, I didn't guess the identity of the culprit, but in hindsight, the clues all make perfect sense. Recommended for mystery fans.
