"Tragedy at Law" by Cyril Hare

Just finished reading this - on the advice of P D James, no less - "Written with elegance and wit" - and thoroughly enjoyed it

Not a thriller, but a "whodunnit - and why?" it is truly elegant and quite captivating. A detailed account of a near closed room mystery with a legal background and well-described characters, the outcome is both surprising an satisfying.

I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants a slightly intellectually-demanding crime novel: light enough to be read for pure pleasure, but deep enough to be satisfying

A five star mystery, IMHO
