About this deal

Rodzina autorki zdecydowała się jednak wypuścić powieść w takiej formie, jak zostawiła po sobie Riley. Made for some tense reading, knowing the murderer was likely to strike again with everyone distracted. Riley nos va dejando las piezas, juega al engaño y al despiste, pero nos permite ir armando el caso poco a poco, una pieza aquí, otra allá y la definitiva, no demasiado pronto.

On top of the school setting leant into the much beloved academia subgenre, which again I absolutely loved. It was a trait which served her well; her Seven Sisters series is grandstanding fiction with an epic, cosmological gloss whilst her standalone novels possess an irresistible romantic sweep.To sum up, The Murders at Fleat House is an engaging mystery with an elaborate plot and a capable main lead. Since there were so many main characters in here, it hardly felt like any side characters were present, so I will mosh what would normally be my two paragraphs into one.

I do wonder if this was ever intended to be the start of a possible series continuation for Detective Jazz, who is quite an engaging lead character. About the book: “The Murders at Fleat House is a suspenseful and utterly compelling crime novel from the multi-million copy global bestseller, Lucinda Riley. Lucinda Riley wrote the manuscript back in 2006, and even though The Murders at Fleat House did utilise cell phones and modern technology, it was few and far in between, giving this murder mystery a timeless quality. Leave the phones out and it could easily be the 1900´s, the thinking and the tone/language just don´t feel modern.

I’ve loved Lucinda Riley’s work for over ten years now, so the opportunity to read a new book from this treasured author in wake on her loss last year was very much appreciated on my part. The Murders at Fleat House is the suspenseful and utterly compelling crime novel from the author of the multimillion-selling The Seven Sisters series, Lucinda Riley.

Then, reaching carefully for the two white tablets placed on the boy's locker every night and replacing them with identical ones, the figure turned, switched off the light and left the room. The romance is similarly low-key, but it’s there, and I liked that most characters got the endings they deserved. Tajemnice Fleat House” byłyby doskonałym wstępem do nastrojowej serii kryminalnej jednej z ukochanych, bestsellerowych autorek.En definitiva, es un libro muy diferente a lo que Riley publicó después, pero tampoco hay que quitarle mérito al trabajo que hizo.

The police procedural that shows the inquiries leading to more than one murder inside Fleat house is a ‘one thread leading to another puzzle’ type that untangles in a steady manner. As staff at the school close ranks, the disappearance of a young pupil and the death of an elderly classics master provide Jazz with important leads, but are destined to complicate the investigation further.The protagonist, DI Jazmine (Jazz) Hunter was an interesting, compelling character – not my favourite female detective by any means – but I enjoyed her POV, and cared about what happened to her. Al estilo de Agatha Christie, genera intriga, todos ocultan algo y no sé si ha quedado alguno del que no haya sospechado. Although this is a 400+ page book, I read it overnight, totally engaged in the mystery and invested in the characters. Dostrzec można w tej powieści ducha obyczajowego, życiowego, ten ciepły sznyt, który tak charakteryzuje serię Siedmiu Sióstr.
