Hall of Mirrors (Bryant and May #15)

The year is 1969 and ten guests are about to enjoy a country house weekend at Tavistock Hall. But one amongst them is harbouring thoughts of murder. . . The guests also include the young detectives Arthur Bryant and John May undercover, in disguise and tasked with protecting Monty Hatton-Jones, a whistle-blower turning Queens evidence in a massive bribery trial. Luckily, theyve got a decent chap on the inside who can help them the one-armed Brigadier, Nigel Fruity Metcalf.The scene is set for what could be the perfect country house murder mystery, except that this particular get-together is nothing like a Golden Age classic. For the good times are, it seems, coming to an end. The houses owner a penniless, dope-smoking aristocrat is intent on selling the estate (complete with its own hippy encampment) to a secretive millionaire but the weekend has only just started when the millionaire goes missing and murder is on the cards. But army manoeuvres have closed the only access road and without a forensic examiner, Bryant and May cant solve the case. Its when a falling gargoyle fells another guest that the two incognito detectives decide to place their future reputations on the line. And in the process discover that in Swinging Britain nothing is quite what it seemsSo gentle reader, you are cordially invited to a weekend in the country. Expect murder, madness and mayhem in the mansion!...
