'Murder, mystery and a dog of distinction. Heathcliff Lennox investigates.'
Book 6 in the Heathcliff Lennox series
A suspicious accident, a dead man's gun and a lost tomb. Strange events disturb the peace of Lanscombe Park, the magnificent country seat of Lord Godolphin Sinclair. Adventurer, gold prospector and arms dealer, Sinclair has spent a lifetime amassing a fortune with ruthless determination. He's a man frightened of nothing, until he receives a package from the distant past. Someone knows his secrets, they kill, and then they kill again. A game of cat and mouse is afoot, Major Heathcliff Lennox and ex Inspector Swift are called to Lanscombe Park to investigate.
Major Heathcliff Lennox, ex-WW1 war pilot, six feet 3 inches, unruly dark blond hair, age around 30 - named after the hero of Wuthering Heights by his romantically minded mother - much to his great annoyance.

5.0 out of 5 stars
I love this series. I have loved all of the books in it. But this one is just delicious! It has everything: a sumptuous English estate, a complicated hero, an antagonist you love to hate (is he hero or villain?), frustrated romance, beautiful surroundings, adorable animals, and a full set of quirky characters. It has spine-chilling ancient stories and modern (well, 1920s modern) threats, and fascinating bits of real history. It's not perfect, but it's close enough to be a darn good read, and I'm sure I'll read it again. I can't wait for the next one; this one left some tantalizing loose ends.
I enjoyed seeing Lennox begin to face some details of his own personal history that have made him a bit difficult. He has a long way to go, but he's getting there, and I suspect he is about to begin to accelerate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!
I love everything about this series. The stories and dialogue just flow and it's hard to put down until the last word has been read. The descriptive text makes me feel like I'm in the characters very presence. How fun it is to envision each of their little quirks and foibles and to be comforted by Mr. Fogg and Tubbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars love these books.
Love these books. Light, Funny, sweet and nostalgic . Even though they bring to mind Wodehouse they are totally their own creation and landscape. I only hope the next book arrives soon. Selfish I know. The fact is-- it was such a relief to disappear into the world of Heathcliff Lennox this past year. I know I am not alone in loving these books and author. I belong to a mystery page on face book that has been raving about them too ..
