To whom do they belong? Footsteps in the Dark

by Georgette Heyer

Georgette Heyer was a very popular author of Regency romances. She wrote The Grand Sophy among others. These stories have long been read by Austen fans and others. What readers may not know, however, is that Heyer also wrote a series of mysteries. This title is one of the books that has been reissued in more recent years.

This is a country house mystery, although said house is rather rundown. It is visited by a trio of siblings who discover a body. Who is the killer and how will the case be solved?

This is a very traditional mystery with a bit of a supernatural touch. Modern readers sometimes criticize Heyer’s mysteries for being long and a bit slow. Not everyone will feel that way however and many may enjoy the leisurely pace and the knowledge of a long (over 400 pages) read ahead. I am glad to have revisited Ms. Heyer in this story.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
