How did it get there? The Corpse in the Snowman by Nicholas Blake

Beginning in the 1930s and running up to the 1960s, British poet laureate Cecil Day-Lewis wrote a series of mysteries under the pen name Nicholas Blake. The series follows Nigel Strangeways and, in many of the titles, Georgia Strangeways as well.

This time the two visit a country house in the winter. It is a strange and unsettling location with odd occurrences. However when a murder takes place, Nigel is on the case.

Those who enjoy old fashioned British mysteries will want to give this one a look. There are many novels about Nigel so those who enjoy this one will have lots to look forward to.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Ipso Books for this title. 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!
