Book Review Spence At Marlby Manor
Title: Spence At Marbly Manor
Author: Michael Allen
Stars: 4 out of 5
If you enjoy a well written and well thought out British Police murder mystery this book should be on your to be read list. DCS Spence is a gruff but likeable police officer who thinks the problem through and then takes action to bring the culprit to justice.
I have rated this book at four stars and look forward to reading the next DCS Spence book in my to be read library.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
Thank you Frank for your Review
Her heirs try to convince her to sell her vast estate and give them their inheritance early, to save on taxes of course. But Lady Dinnister can't bear to give up her home and turns them down flat. That's when the "accidents" start…
When a barbed bouquet of red roses pierces her palm, she attributes this to poor presentation on the florist's part. When the front wheel falls off her Rolls-Royce, she believes it to be a mechanical mishap. But when her hairdryer turned into a lethal weapon, Lady Dinnister finally decides someone is trying to kill her...Only she wasn't the one who ended up dead. Was it the buxom cook who moonlighted as a nude model? The dashing chauffeur who was driven by ambition? The spoilt grandchildren? Detective Ben Spence, assisted by his able partner, Inspector Laurel, thinks it is much more likely to be one of the greedy relatives. Someone has carried out an ingenious crime. But if the killer is so clever, why is the wrong victim mouldering in their grave? Spence at Marlby Manor is a suspenseful murder mystery that casts suspicion on everyone and everything.
