From the tip of his black Homburg to the crease in his cheviot trousers, he's the epitome of a stylish 1930s English gentleman. His only problem? The body he just discovered.
Drew Farthering is an avid reader of mysteries, but he's quite surprised when he stumbles across one in real life. With help from his good friend Nick and American visitor Madeline, Drew draws upon all his knowledge of mysteries to solve the crime. He'd better be careful though, because this mystery hits closer to home than he realizes.
Rules of Murder is a fun mystery set on the backdrop of 1930s England. The characters and dialogue are perhaps the book's best, but I hate to say that because it means leaving out a very important part: the murder mystery. I love reading a mystery that has me guessing. Weaved into the madness is an interesting side story surrounding author Ronald Knox's ten commandments for mystery writers. Julianna Deering breaks or bends them all, but successfully delivers an enjoyable whodunnit murder mystery.
