Murder at Madingley Grange

Caroline Graham: Murder at Madingley Grange (UK 2009)

From the Publisher:
Murder comes to Madingley Grange as a game goes horribly wrong.
When a failed entrepreneur is temporarily left in charge of his aunt's huge gothic home, he knows he must be able to make a profit from it somehow. Murder, he decides, is the only way to do it. For Madingley Grange is the perfect venue for a 1930s murder-mystery weekend and Simon Hannaford - with the reluctant help of his long-suffering sister - soon hatches a plan for money-spinning mayhem.

From the conservatory to the claret cellar, the clues are carefully sprinkled. But when the guests arrive it is obvious that the game won't be going as planned. Not one of the visitors is willing to play the victim. And when a body does appear, it hardly takes Hercule Poirot to guess it is not a volunteer. Now the game really begins...

Murder at Madingley Grange

Caroline Graham: Murder at Madingley Grange (USA 2006)

From the Publisher:
Simon Hannaford is in need of some fast money, and murder seems the obvious solution. Specifically, a 1930s Murder Mystery Weekend, to be held at Madingley Grange, his aunt's superbly hideous gothic mansion. Simon and his sister are meant to be house-sitting, but surely Aunt Maude would not begrudge them the chance to earn a few nearly honest shekels.

Ah, the confidence of youth! Simon's grand plans quickly go awry, beginning with the guests -- each one dottier than the last -- and moving on to the staff, hired on the cheap and with larcenous plans of their own. And when an actual body turns up, deprived of actual life, Simon's charade of detection is suddenly forced to begin in earnest.

A wonderful, hilarious satire of the country house mystery.

Caroline Graham: Murder at Madingley Grange. Felony & Mayhem, ISBN: 9781933397528 (October, 2006), 292 p., $14.95.

Murder at Madingley Grange

Caroline Graham: Murder at Madingley Grange (UK 1991)

From the Publisher:
When Simon Hannaford is left temporarily in charge of his aunt's 20-bedroom Gothic pile he knows he must be able to make a profit from it somehow. Murder, he decides, is the only way to do it. For Madingley Grange is the perfect venue for a 1930s mystery weekend and, before long, he and his long-suffering sister have set the stage for money-spinning mayhem.

From the conservatory to the contents of the claret cellar the clues are sprinkled like pot pourri, and the hired retainers Gaunt and Bennet provide the finishing touch. But when the guests arrive it is obvious that the business of murder is bound to run off course. For neither Derek, who refuses to relinquish his deerstalker, nor Mrs Gibbs, a card-sharping grandmother, nor Gillette, the 30s fiend complete with ukelele, nor any of the other ill-assorted bunch is happy to play the victim. And when a body does appear, it hardly takes a Hercule Poirot to guess it is not a volunteer. The game of detection must begin in earnest.

Caroline Graham: Murder at Madingley Grange. Headline, ISBN: 0747235961 (September, 1991), 290 p., £4.50.
