Curious Incident at Claridge's: An Antonia Darcy and Major Hugh Payne Investigation [Secure]
eBook by R.T. Raichev

eBook Category: Mystery/Crime
eBook Description: Praise for the Antonia Darcy series:

"Except for its modern day setting, the book could have been published during Agatha Christie's heyday, the so-called Golden Age of detective fiction, and readers who relish that period will be dlighted."—The Denver Post

"Raichev's use of characterization and allusion will keep the reader turning pages to the end."—The Oklahoman

"Deftly mixes dark humor and psychological suspense, its genteel surface masking delicious deviancy."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Highly recommended."—Library Journal, starred review

Did the young and beautiful Lady Tradescant try to poison her elderly husband? If not, who did? There is no shortage of suspects. His eccentric twin sister Bettina, his disgruntled son Nicholas, his scheming daughter Olivia . . . Antonia Darcy and Hugh Payne face one of their most baffling cases.

Their investigation takes them from the luxury of Claridge’s Hotel to Mayholme Manor, a residential home for elderly gentlemen. This proves to be a distinctly sinister establishment, where they encounter the mysterious Doctor Fairchild and his albino manservant Madden. There seems to be a link in all of this to the Nuremberg trials. Did a royal figure secretly plot to save one of Hitler’s most notorious henchmen from the gallows? And how does that relate to the murder?

R.T. Raichev is a researcher and writer who grew up in Bulgaria and wrote a university dissertation on English crime fiction. He is the author of five novels in the Antonia Darcy series and has lived in London since 1989.
