Description

Instead of leading his riders to the hunt, the fifteenth Earl of Candlesby is found dead, his body wrapped in blankets atop his horse, a corner of his scarlet coat visible in the morning mist. Three people see the body. One dies. Another vanishes. Now only one man knows how he was killed. Lord Powerscourt is summoned to investigate the murder. Powerscourt uncovers a tangled web of jealousy, revenge, and hatred on a rundown estate where the father and his sons are equally dangerous. The fifteenth Earl has left a trail of dueling, theft, and adultery across the flatlands of Lincolnshire. It will take another murder and a perilous chase beneath the crumbling estate before Powerscourt unlocks the mystery.

        Starred review from January 10, 2011
        Dickinson's strong 10th historical starring Lord Francis Powerscourt (after 2010's Death of a Wine Merchant) combines a compelling whodunit with some of the author's best writing to date. In 1909, a car accident strands Powerscourt and his wife in the town of Candlesby, where he meets an elderly doctor, Theodore Miller. The fatally ill, conscience-stricken Miller confesses to the detective that while he recently signed a death certificate stating that the late Lord Candlesby died of natural causes, he did so under pressure from the earl's sons. In fact, Candlesby, who failed to show for a fox hunt the morning he perished, suffered horrific head injuries that point to foul play. Powerscourt finds no shortage of suspects, ranging from the son of a man the earl shot to death in a duel to his sons and heirs. Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers fans will hope that Dickinson sustains the high quality in his next book in what has been an uneven series.
