Arsenic for Tea


Hazel Wong is homesick for Hong Kong. The elephant foot umbrella stand, starchy blankets, kippers and peeling wallpaper of Fallingford are off-putting enough, but torrential rain and the murder of unwanted guest, Denis Curtis, mean that she is stuck there. Her services are needed however, by Daisy Wells, president of their detective society, Wells & Wong, for Hazel is Vice-President, Secretary, and our narrator, to this claustrophobic mystery, ‘Arsenic for Tea‘ in Daisy’s stately home, where all sorts of secrets and silver teaspoons are waiting to be unearthed.

Robin Stevens’ ‘Murder Most Unladylike‘ series is beloved by readers. It’s absolutely understandable, for this writer never puts a foot wrong, unlike the murderer….. will Wells & Wong solve the case ahead of Inspector Priestley, again?  ‘Arsenic for Tea‘ is beautifully set, well researched, pacy, fulsome reading. Bookwagon recommends this great story to any reader in need of a really good book.
