"An English country house mystery infused with humor, verve, and plenty of surprises." - Kirkus Reviews

"Slayton gets everything right—the fairly-planted clues, plot twists, and characters who are more than stereotypes. P.G. Wodehouse fans will want to have a look."- Publisher's Weekly

"Clever, enjoyable, charming, and a must-read for all historical mystery lovers." - Reader's Favorite (Five Star Review)


Anthony Slayton is a self-confessed Anglophile, at least when it comes to murder and death. Author of the Mr. Quayle Mysteries, he is a life-long mystery aficionado—the more bodies, the better! In his spare time, he can probably be found walking in the park or binge-watching one mystery series or another (possibly just rewatching Poirot and Midsomer Murders for the umpteenth time).
