Publisher's Summary

Downton Abbey meets Agatha Christie with a touch of Wodehouse and a dog of distinction.

Who killed Sir Crispin Gibbons? A wedding invitation and news of mischief that could be murder takes Lennox to the Earl of Bloxford's country estate. He, soon, finds himself in a world of purloined artworks, forgeries, and a priceless Bloxford beauty. 

But who are the Bloxford beauties? And why are they the focal point around which death swirls?

Lennox must confront life-long friends, unscrupulous artists, and dealers to finally unravel a plot so complex that even his old adversary, Chief Inspector Swift of Scotland Yard, is perplexed.

Book 2

As always great narrator Sam Dewhurst-Philips.
I thought this book was very good if a little too long. i found myself falling asleep sometimes and having to rewind.
if you love cosy mysteries this certainly fits the bill.
Maybe too many interesting characters to follow so found it hard to keep track at times. However I loved book 1 . Maybe I started reading book 2 too soon after that. I am now heading to book 3 with enthusiasm.

Second in the Series did not disappoint!

The first in this Heathcliff Lennox series was brilliant. The dialogue was delightful. The development of characters & plot was so enjoyable. I really hoped the second in the series would live up to the enjoyment of the first. And The Black Cat Murders was just as wonderful! Karen Menuhin paints such a colorful picture story with evocative prose. Sam Dewhurst-Phillips breathes life in to each character in such a way I wish he would read more of the audio books in my library! Each nuanced tone, accent, cadence is so believable! I enjoyed this completely and am a bit sad the story came to an end. Highly recommend this audio book!

Loved It!

Great new cozy mystery series and talented author. It's humorous and an interesting mystery series. I read the first one and immediately purchased this one (book 2 of the series). Sam Dewhurst-Phillips did an exceptional narration. Please keep them coming.

Lots of fun

I loved this tongue in cheek mystery. Excellent narrator who I hope to hear lots more from. I iMagine it depends on your sense of humor and what you find funny, but I chuckled out loud many times and found the narrator’s performance added to the humor In a way I haven’t come across in a while.

Sam Dewhurst-Phillips did a spectacular job. Many distinct characters and inflections with excellent timing. He brought out the absurd comedy brilliantly.

Liked the story but the narrator was GREAT

Very good story but the narrator really brought it to life. I’d give him more stars if I could.
