Publisher's Summary

DI Vera Stanhope is not one to make friends easily, but she has more tolerance for her hippy neighbours than most. When one of them goes missing, she feels duty-bound to find out what happened. It's an easy job to track the young woman down to a country retreat where aspiring authors gather to work through their novels. It gets complicated when a body is discovered and Vera's neighbour is found with a knife in her hand.

Calling in the team, Vera knows that she should hand the case over to someone else, but the investigation is too tempting. Then another body is found, and Vera suspects that someone is playing games with her.

The Glass room

really good read, as usual the detective Vera Stanhope draws you in, you keep wanting to understand her, but somehow the reader never quite gets enough info, so we keep wanting more. can't wait for the bext book.

Country house murder mystery

A quintessential country house murder mystery from the current queen of crime drama.
A crime committed in an enclosed location, with a personal connection to Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope , set amongst literary figures, ensures a drama which draws the reader into an unfamiliar world .
The plot weaves in & out so that each character in turn becomes victim & suspect. A superb read.
