    Sir Laurence was a decorated soldier in the Great War, and a hardnosed businessman. He was also a man of whom everyone was a little afraid. So when he boasted to Doctor Straay about his expert knowledge of crime fiction and requested that Straay spend a weekend at his country estate, the detective had reservations.

    What began as an absorbing evening of drinks, conversation, and card games, soon turned into a horrific scene of murder. Fiction would soon give way to fact and in this game, the game of murder, Doctor Straay was the expert…

    Book Reviews:

    “This is a beautifully written cozy historical police procedural … Mr. Abbot’s writing is elegant, and his diction is precise. He has set his mystery principally between the World Wars, and he demonstrates an intimate knowledge of the first half of the 20th Century .. I enjoyed the book so much that I kept turning its pages instead of running the errands I had planned to do, and I’m giving thanks for it by writing this review while I should be catching up on them. Dr. Pieter Straay is an engaging detective, and his cooperation with “the force” is well crafted.”  By Kay House, Amazon

    ” … The novel combines a sense of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot with techniques of Sherlock Holmes to create an old-fashioned murder mystery where everyone is a suspect amidst deftly dropped clues. The author’s interest and background in psychology is readily apparent and despite some convoluted explanations at the end, serves the story well … Overall, I think Mr. Abbott is a welcome addition to the cadre of British mystery writers.”  By Leapin’ Literary Lurkers,  Amazon

    “ A great read. I never write reviews but I can hardly wait for the next edition. What will Dr. Straay do now. Wonderful complicated detective.” By Gail Walton, Amazon
