Review:

"Dorothy Martin, with her recent knee replacements, doesn't move as fast as she used to in Dams's stately 10th mystery to feature the retired American schoolteacher living in England (after 2004's Winter of Discontent). Dorothy and her retired chief constable husband, Alan Nesbit, join friends at a restored Kent abbey, now a country house with all the modern conveniences, to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day. Unfortunately, a major storm casts a pall on the house party — and blows over an oak tree that reveals a human skeleton tangled in its roots. The discovery in a secret room of a mummy — a desiccated female body whose clothes date from the mid — 20th century — adds to the intrigue. Fans of traditional English mysteries should be satisfied. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWxyz LLC)

Synopsis:

The new ‘Dorothy Martin’ mystery - When Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, are invited to a country house weekend, they expect nothing more explosive than the Guy Fawkes fireworks. Having read every Agatha Christie ever written, Dorothy should have known better. Rendered isolated and incommunicado by the storm, Dorothy and Alan nevertheless manage to work out what in the world has been happening at ancient Branston Abbey.
