Description

Paperback: 199 pages. I absolutely loooooooooved this book! I purchased it this morning around 8 . and by noon I was done reading it. As you can imagine I got very little done this morning.

Paperback: 199 pages. LOL This book is as well written as all the other Chesney books (. Beaton books) that I've read. The plot, while not original, is extremely interesting and moves at a nice, quick pace and encompasses well developed characters.

Margaret Yorke was born Margaret Beda Larminie Nicholson in Surrey, but lived in Dublin until 1937, before moving back to England. She then turned to the subject of crime with Dead in the Morning, published in 1970. During the war, she served in the Woman's Royal Naval Service as a driver. She then worked in the libraries of two Oxford colleges, and was the first woman ever to work in Christ Church library. With No Medals for the Major published in 1974, she began writing novels of suspense, which include The Point of Murder, Serious Intent and Act of Violence. In 1982, she won the Swedish Academy Detection award for the best translated novel, The Scent of Fear.

Book Description G K Hall & Co, Boston, 1989. Translated by Eileen Ellenbogen. Snared in the propeller of a barge was a man's arm - drained white, and limp as a dead fish from prolonged immersion in the murky canal. It was a singularly challenging case for Chief Inspector Maigret, as piece by gruesome piece the corpse of a man was assembled from the muddy canal bottom - all except the head.

Morning Dew - Live at Barton Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 5/8/77 Lyrics. Walk me out in the morning dew, my honey Walk me out in the morning dew today I can't walk you out in the morning dew, my honey I can't walk you out in the morning dew today. I thought I heard a baby cry this morning I thought I heard a baby cry this today You didn't hear no baby cry this morning You didn't hear no baby cry today.

Nightingale Hall is a cave that is in The Rift and is located south of Riften. It serves as the headquarters of the Nightingales. The Nightingales are a small secretive internal sect of the Thieves Guild, whose primary purpose is to protect the Twilight Sepulcher, the primary shrine of the Daedric Prince, Nocturnal. It also serves as a secondary shrine to Nocturnal for the Nightingales.

No one would have been surprised if old Mrs. Ludlow were murdered, but when her housekeeper is the one who turns up dead, everyone assumes that the lethal drugs were intended for Mrs. Ludlow, and Dr. Patrick Grant thinks he can prove everyone wrong.

I enjoyed every minute. I loved the surprize ending. I keep my books that get for my dotage when I can reread them and be totally surprized all over again. Margaret Yorke is a splendid British Cozy Mystery writer. I read all I could find in the library, but what with these darn tablets ( I refuse to have one I like paper ) our libraries are culling out books, sending some to the stacks and selling many off. The shelves are bare! I heard that many of her books were out of print! So I went to Amazon and lo and behold there many of her titles and many good prices.

If you have never read Margaret Yorke before I would describe her as a cross between Agatha Christie and Ruth Rendell. This is a good old-fashioned "who dunnit" featuring Dr. Patrick Grant, Oxford Don and amateur sleuth. It is a neat and cosy murder mystery with well defined characters. Yorke has written better books but this is still enjoyable.

I'd forgotten how much I used to enjoy Margaret York's book!. Yes. She is on a par with Agatha Christie, Ngaio March, etc.
Set in an English Village just like so many of her books, and of dear Prof Patrick wondering around putting people and things into shape. How does he do it? Read the book!
I have to start reading all the books in the series.
I think anyone who enjoys the good old English countryside murder stories, ie Inspector Barnaby, Poirot and co, will like the Margaret York series.

Only half a day's reading in this very light mystery in which Dr Grant insinuates himself into the plot with far less reason than Miss Marple ever had.

Margaret Yorke is to be listed among the great British women mystery writers.

Dead in the Morning is my first book by mystery author Yorke and overall I enjoyed it. I love to devolve in to a mystery book once and a while for review so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to read a penguin classic and discover a new English mystery writer . I `m a fan of the English mysteries whether it be a TV series or a book and this book didn't disappoint. This book has made want to raid my bookshelves and read my Enid Blyton's books who was know for her classic children English mysteries and her characters.

This book has the classic signs of a mystery. A mysterious death, a cast of characters to chose from and an amateur sleuth determined to find out who has done it. A classic who done it mystery. Our sleuth is Dr Patrick Grant dean of a college at Oxford. He come to keep his sister accompany whilst her husband is out of town and immediately is curious about the Ludlow family due to the connections he has with one of them. As he gets to know the family, there is a murder and he immediately decides to indulgence in his passion and try to solve the mystery and find out who has done it .

The book is only about 160 pages long but the author know how to write a mystery that is play out in the right way. She doesn't add anything unnecessary and keeps us interested. It is a jam packed book filled with twists and turns that will leave you guessing till the last page.

4 couples and I'm looking forward to reading some of the other penguin classics.
