Everyone on the scene seems to have a motive, not to mention the wherewithal to commit murder, and alibis that simply don't hold up.

The inspector is sorely tried by a wide variety of suspects, including the neglected widow, the neighbour who's in love with her, her resentful daughter, and a patently phony Russian prince preying on the widow's emotional vulnerability and social aspirations. And then there's the blackmail plot that may – or may not – be at the heart of the case...." Image is actual copy on offer.

Softcover; Mass Market PB Berkley Medallion Books: NY; c1957,1975; Reprint 414 pages Very Good- 
Spine and cover creases, light edgewear, book slightly curved. Pages pale tan but clean and not brittle; none loose. Book says "Large-Type edition" but the text is only slightly larger than most mass market paperbacks. The text is not as large as it is in most large print hardbacks. Also published as 'Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle'. ; We agree with the "Time and Tide" reviewer that said they would place this book as high as "The Grand Sophy". A very enjoyable Regency romp. "When Sylvester, Duke of Saleford, posted into Wiltshire to discover whether the Hon. Phoebe Marlow matched his exacting requirements for a bride, he did not expect that the prospect of an offer from him would cause Miss Marlow to flee from her home." Nor did he know that Phoebe, with her very discerning eye, and gift for mimicry, had written a novel...
