Penhallow
Penhallow | Georgette Heyer
3 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
"Miss Heyer's characters act and speak with an ease and conviction that is as refreshing as it is rare in the ordinary mystery novel." -Times Literary Supplement "The characters are...among the most complex and believable characters she has created." -Boston Evening Transcript A family tyrant whose murder has shocking and far-reaching consequences... Hated for his cruel and vicious nature, yet ruling his family with an iron hand from his sickbed, tyrannical patriarch Adam Penhallow is found murdered the day before his birthday. His entire family had assembled for his birthday celebration, and every one of them had the ways and means to commit the crime. As accusation and suspicion turn in one direction, then another, the claws and backstabbing come out, and no one is exempt from the coming implosion. What readers are saying: "The psychology of the suspects was fascinating." "An impressive piece of writing, darker than Heyer's other mysteries." Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty books, including Regency romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. Her barrister husband, Ronald Rougier, provided many of the plots for her detective novels, which are classic English country house mysteries reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, inventive plots, and sparkling characterization.

Listened to this recorded by Bolinda audiobooks. God, it was grim! Couldn‘t wait to stop listening to that bickering family going on and on... unremitting misery, thought it would never end! I get what the author was doing, unforeseen consequences and all that, but I still felt it was an unsatisfactory ending.

Dark and depressing - not your typical Heyer. Many Heyer fans don't care for Penhallow but I loved it. You might need a drink and a hug afterwards.
