A Question of Inheritance

December 1953

Hugo Hawksworth is on the tail of rogue Cold War agents at a top-secret government facility, while back home at Selchester Castle they’re awaiting the arrival of the new Earl—an American, the long-lost son of the murdered Lord Selchester.

The town of Selchester, rich in scandal and gossip, is unsure what to make of the Earl or his teenage daughters, but they know that his sharp-tongued half-sister, Lady Sonia, furious at being deprived of her inheritance, won’t be a merry guest over Christmas.

The new Lord Selchester can cope with the strangeness of English country life, but he hadn’t expected stolen paintings—or a body in the hothouse.

What’s the link between Hugo’s investigations and the suspicious goings-on in the town and at the Castle? And will he and his allies get to the heart of the mystery before the murderer gets to them?

Revised edition: This edition of A Question of Inheritance includes editorial revisions.

    I like her style of writing. I find the time period interesting. This was a fairly good mystery continuing with the same characters from Man of Some Repute. It probably would have been helpful to read the novella that came between the 2 stories, so you can understand how the new earl w...

    I just now read about the death of Mrs. Edmondson. How very terrible. I've so enjoyed reading this series. Mrs. Edmondson was an excellent writer. Her descriptions were very vivid and included wonderfully dimensional characters. I shall miss them. Perhaps her estate will commission ano...

    Diese Fortsetzung von "A Man of Some Repute" hat mir noch besser gefallen. Sei es, weil mir die Figuren und Handlungsorte schon vertraut waren, sei es, weil ich dauernd nur die Daumen gedrĂĽckt habe, dass Hugo und Georgia das Schloss nicht verlassen mĂĽssen.Ein bisschen hat mich di...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series "A Man of Some Repute" more than this one. It's a long book and that's okay. I was enjoying the story and the characters until close to the end. The pace picked up significantly to the point where it felt rushed pulling everything together to wra...
