A Blunt Instrument by Georgette Heyer

This is the last book of the series. With this particular story, concludes the currently available mystery series of Georgette Heyer on Kindle unlimited.

I was lucky to have audible narration to bid adieu to the Superintendent Hannasyde and his second in command and soon to be big-shot Hemingway. The annoying part about this book, and almost all of Hannasyde’s books ( not the Hemingway series : #1,#2,#3,#4) is the time taken for them to the conclusion. All the signs seem obvious to us as the reader from quite early on.

The cast is interesting and annoying in equal measure. A murder has been reported by     (religious fanatic) P.C Glass and his superiors have to bear his tirade and quoting of fiery scriptures while he assists them in the solving of the case. The suspects include a confused couple down the road and the nephew ( the heir). The conversations are still as entertaining as any other book, but as mentioned previously I felt they could have wrapped it up sooner than they did. Hannasyde at least was the one with the revelation in this book.

I am going to go back to the regency romance series of Georgette Heyer and hope to enjoy them as I once did.
