The Murder of Lady Malvern
A delightful page-turner! ~ Review by M.L
I thoroughly enjoyed The Murder of Lady Malvern, a clever Jules Poiret Mystery. There is nothing cliché about this murder mystery, though it is written in a charming, old-style classical mystery tone, reminiscent of Agatha Christie and with all the suspense of Daphne du Maurier. The main character, a brilliant detective, is witty, sharp as a tack and quite refreshing and charming.
The story line and mystery being solved in this book is a classic “who killed the rich lady”. The author kept me guessing around every turn and I liked being kept hanging. The supporting characters and suspects in this mystery were compelling, well-written and delightful.
I look forward to reading the further adventures of Jules Poiret. I anticipate the next set of stories will be equally adventurous and will hopefully be just as entertaining. Thank you, Frank Howell Evans, for an enjoyable and refreshing read. I hope to read more of your work in the future.
