Description

A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

"Miss Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me." —Dorothy L. Sayers

Every family has secrets, but the Fountains' are turning deadly?

On a dark night, along a lonely country road, barrister Frank Amberley stops to help a young lady in distress and discovers a sports car with a corpse behind the wheel. The girl protests her innocence, and Amberley believes her?at least until he gets drawn into the mystery and the clues incriminating Shirley Brown begin to add up?

In an English country-house murder mystery with a twist, it's the butler who's the victim, every clue complicates the puzzle, and the bumbling police are well-meaning but completely baffled. Fortunately, in ferreting out a desperate killer, amateur sleuth Amberley is as brilliant as he is arrogant, but this time he's not sure he wants to know the truth?

PRAISE FOR WHY SHOOT A BUTLER? "If genteel mysteries are your cup of tea, you have here a steaming teapot just waiting to be poured."— Bestsellers "Georgette Heyer is second to none."— Sunday Times "Heyer is an author to read ? this means you!"—New York Herald Tribune "Sharp, clear, and witty"— New Yorker

display_descriptionA lonely old man is murdered in a quiet country lane, apparently shot as he was driving home. The bullet from the murder weapon penetrated his left lung just below the heart. The only witness to the crime is a pretty young woman with a loaded automatic in her pocket--soon to become the main suspect.
