The Dreadful Hollow

(The tenth book in the Nigel Strangeways series)
A novel by

This is an excellent mystery featuring Nigel Strangeways, who is called upon to investigate poison pen letters that have been disturbing a village. There is an interesting cast of characters, including a beautiful, paralyzed woman and a vicar with a sad secret. There are hidden conflicts with friends and family members and a dramatic conclusion. The author tends to stereotype the villagers as being greatly different from the gentry, which seems to be a common English theme. However,the Chantry and Blick families are very well described and unique.Their personalities can be clearly seen. A very readable mystery.
