An English Murder (Paperback)
A country house murder mystery classic, as a party find themselves snowed-in on Christmas Eve with a murderer among them... The snow is thick, the phone line is down, and no one is getting in or out of Warbeck Hall. All is set for a lovely Christmas, with friends and family gathered round the fire, except as the bells chime midnight, a murder is committed. But who is responsible? The scorned young lover? The lord's passed-over cousin? The social climbing politician's wife? The Czech history professor? The obsequious butler? And perhaps the real question is: Can they survive long enough to find out?
An English Murder (1951) was the sixth crime novel by Cyril Hare, nom de plume of Alfred Gordon Clark, one of the most influential names in English Golden Age crime writing. Alfred Gordon Clark was a county judge when he wrote the novel. He died in 1958.
