The Murder at Sissingham Hall by Clara Benson Book Summary

"It's absolutely delightful, and I would recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Sarah Caudwell, or Agatha Christie, or anyone who loves really clever British murder mysteries set in the '20s." - Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl.

On his return from South Africa, Charles Knox is invited to spend the weekend at the country home of Sir Neville Strickland, whose beautiful wife Rosamund was once Knox's fiancee. But in the dead of night Sir Neville is murdered. Who did it? As suspicion falls on each of the house guests in turn, Knox finds himself faced with deception and betrayal on all sides, and only the enigmatic Angela Marchmont seems to offer a solution to the mystery. This 1920s whodunit will delight all fans of traditional country house murder stories.

The Murder at Sissingham Hall (Clara Benson) Book Reviews

MeGood enough.Score: 1/5

Great title for a great bookThe best thing about this book is that it’s never a dull moment. This is the first book I’ve started and actually finished in the past 10 years. I do not read at all, but this book had my mind locked in. Totally worth every minute of reading..Score: 5/5

Sissingham Hall - predictable, but not badLight read - not bad, but not unexpected. By page 45, I knew the victim, the killer, and the motive. And then, 2 chapters later, the murder actually happened. Whole plot throughout very predictable. Decent character development, but do they all have to be involved in discussing the clues? Definitely a case of too many cooks. Needs more Angela Marchmont involvement, instead of sitting idly by on the sidelines watching people die. Plot so light, clues stand out like neon billboards. No surprises here, folks. Having said that, I’ll probably read more Angela - fun, light read..Score: 3/5

Can’t wait to read the othersI knew who the killer was right away but it did not take away from a good book. I wanted to found out exactly how they did it the moment I knew. Can’t wait to read the rest of the books..Score: 4/5

A Great ReadUnexpectedly an enjoyable book. Written like an Agatha Christie novel, I loved it. Old English charm, believable characters and a compelling mystery. Can’t wait to read more of this author’s work..Score: 5/5

Weak MysteryI didn’t much need Angela to solve the mystery for me, as it was too obvious that Sir Neville was already a goner when Roamund urged her ridiculously inept “friend” to accompany her to the study, pretending to converse through the door with her husband. From there, the “mystery” was utterly transparent. None of the main characters is particularly well drawn, though Sylvia and Joan are not as improbable as the others. If this was a first novel, I guess there might be some hope that things may improve in future attempts at the genre, but I’m not sure I’ll devote much energy to find out..Score: 2/5

A good English murder mysteryI have always enjoyed English mysteries. This was no exception. It had twists and turns, and surprises. I would recommend it..Score: 5/5

Good for a quick readIt was a classic British detective and well-written. The plot was a little predictable, but still suspenseful enough for the majority of the book to make it enjoyable..Score: 3/5

Don’t even start this seriesI love historical mystery series, and I read many. I cannot believe this series made it past the first entry. There is very limited character development beyond stereotypes, and the main character is simply too silly and stupid to make the reader care about his plight..Score: 1/5

Too PredictableI knew very early on who the killer would be before the murder even occurred. Ending felt very thrown together..Score: 2/5

Absolutely Painful to ReadThe book seemed to drag on and on. The main character was NOT Mrs. Marchmont as the “Angela Marchmont Mysteries” has you to believe but an absolute idiot that you want to take and shake. The killer was obvious from pretty much the beginning and the only reason this got two stars from me is that how the killer did it was still a mystery. The ending was just kinda dumb and not believable..Score: 2/5

Fun RompThis story was very enjoyable the entire way, if not somewhat predictable. This was exactly what I signed up for. Character development is solid for a short-length story, and the characters are relatable in the sense that they feel like they could be real people (in a completely surreal situation)..Score: 3/5
