* Checkmate to Murder – E.C.R. Lorac


Local Reader Review

This book is a little gem. I couldn’t put it down once I started on it. It’s a classic ‘who done it’ and no clue is wasted.
The language is lovely and the sentiments in the book hark back to a bygone era. If you fancy a quick but old fashioned crime thriller that can be read in a short amount of time then this is the book for you.
It took me three nights before I went to sleep to finish the book and it was a delight

On a dismally foggy night in Hampstead, London, a curious party has gathered in an artist’s studio to weather the wartime blackout. A civil servant and a government scientist are matching wits in a game of chess, while an artist paints the portrait of his characterful sitter, bedecked in Cardinal’s robes at the other end of the room. In the kitchen, the artist’s sister is hosting the charlady of the miser next door.

When the brutal murder of said miser is discovered by his Canadian infantryman nephew, it’s not long before Inspector Macdonald of Scotland Yard is at the scene, faced with perplexing alibis and with the fate of the young soldier in his hands.
