Silas Kane's sixtieth birthday party is marred by argument and dissension amongst his family, and then the next morning, Kane is found dead.

I'm so glad many of Georgette Heyer's classic mysteries are still being made available as e-books. Heyer is more famous for her brilliant romances, but her 12 mystery books are a great pleasure to read. I recently re-read this one, (I had forgotten who the murderer was) and I really enjoyed it. Her mysteries are very funny and I particulaly enjoyed the vintage 1930's details of clothing, slang and setting. Good fun, and perfect for a breezy summer day.
