Will everyone who's a fan of English country house mysteries--like those written by Agatha Christie and other Golden Age writers--please gather in the library? You need to discover Detective Chief Inspector St. Just's first book (it's old-fashioned--and that's quite a compliment!). In Death of a Cozy Writer, wealthy mystery writer Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk and his oldest son are murdered at the newly married author's snow-covered Cambridgeshire estate...and it seems that everyone in the house has a motive for murder.

From deep in the heart of his eighteenth century English manor, millionaire Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk writes mystery novels and torments his four spoiled children with threats of disinheritance. Gathering them all together for a family dinner, he announces his latest blow—a secret elopement. Within hours, eldest son and appointed heir Ruthven is found cleaved to death by a medieval mace. And soon Sir Adrian himself is found slumped over his writing desk—an ornate knife thrust into his heart. Trapped amid leering gargoyles and stone walls, every member of the family is a likely suspect. Using a little Cornish brusqueness and brawn, can St. Just find the killer before the next-in-line to the family fortune ends up dead?
