Izzy Palmer has always wanted to investigate a country house mystery, she just never dreamed of getting paid £100,000 for the trouble.
Financial tycoon Aldridge Porter was a hard-headed businessman and now he’s stiff-muscled corpse hanging in his library. Each of his children had a reason to want their miserly father out of the way, but was it the golden child, the underachiever, the playboy, the vamp or the waif who stuck the knife in? Unless, of course, the butler did it.
Izzy will need to call on everything that her obsession with detective fiction has taught her to uncover the secrets of Vomeris Hall and the eccentric family who lives there.
“A Corpse in the Country” is the second book in the Izzy Palmer series. It’s another fast-paced and funny murder mystery that delivers a contemporary spin on golden-age crime fiction. If you like the intrigue of Agatha Christie mixed with the humour of Helen Fielding, then this is the series for you.
