    eBook à Death in the Stocks Paperback Death in the StocksThis is the first mystery featuring Inspector Hannasyde and is the first Georgette Heyer mystery that I have read It begins with a very unusual murder – Mr Arnold Vereker who has a weekend cottage in the country is found stabbed to death with his body left propped in the stocks of Ashleigh Green As the story unfolds we find that Mr Vereker was a wealthy man who was disliked by his younger half sister and brother Antonia was engaged to a man that Mr Vereker disapproved of; while her artist brother Kenneth is in debt and wants to marry the beautiful Violet Williams who makes no secret of her desire for a good life Both Kenneth and Antonia treat the matter of Mr Vereker’s murder

    eBook à Death in the Stocks Paperback Death in the StocksThis is the latest listen with my daughter on our commute she likes mysteries I like Georgette Heyer It turned out well I think The mystery element of it was a little weak I guessed the murderer and the means they'd be detected pretty early but the characters were strong There's even a romance that didn't suck so that's all good I did notice a real dearth of likeability I suppose that makes sense in a story where you have to have multiple viable suspects to workI kind of hoped we'd see of Giles in future books in the series but that doesn't look to be the case Giles does the bulk of the work and all of the solving in this story with Detective Hannasyde for whom the series is named being almost ancillary to his efforts Hannasyde is competent at least but he doe

    eBook à Death in the Stocks Paperback Death in the StocksGeorgette Heyer is a writer I keep meaning to read of In the past I've enjoyed a couple of her Regency romances most recently listening to one of the audiobooks read by Richard Armitage but this is the first time I've tried one of her mysteriesThe style of writing seems uite similar to that of her Regency novels with a lot of witty dialogue and larger than life characters The story is also laced with romance Although this is the first in the Inspector Hannasyde series I'd have to say that uiet professional Hannasyde is totally overshadowed by glamorous amateur detective Giles Carrington who has hints of Wimsey or Campion about himAs the title suggests the book starts with a man's body being found in the stocks on a village green The victim Arnold Vereker soon turns out to have been a thoroughly unpopular character who had a weeke
