Death By the Book (#02 in Drew Farthering Mystery Series)

Julianna Deering
Also Available In
WHEN THE VILLAGE OF FARTHERING ST. JOHN IS Stunned BY A SERIES OF MURDERS, DREW FARTHERING IS DRAWN again INTO THE SLEUTHING GAME.


Drew Farthering wanted nothing more than to end the summer of 1932 with the announcement of his engagement. Instead, he finds himself caught up in another mysterious case when the family solicitor is found murdered, an antique hatpin with a cryptic message, Advice to Jack, piercing his chest.

Evidence of secret meetings and a young girl's tearful confession point to the victim's double life, but what does the solicitor's murder have to do with the murder of a physician on the local golf course? Nothing, it would seem--except for another puzzling note, affixed with a similar-looking bloodied hatpin.

Soon the police make an arrest in connection with the murders, but Drew isn't at all certain they have the right suspect in custody. And why does his investigation seem to be drawing him closer and closer to home?

PRAISE for RULES OF MURDER

"Readers will want to carve out uninterrupted time to read this mystery in one sitting. Red herrings at every turn will have them guessing and flipping pages until the shocking end."

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.
