Vintage Golden Age Mystery
Scavenger Hunt Category: Spooky House/Mansion
Date Finished: June 28, 2016
A young lawyer gets involved with an extended family going through a dispute over an inheritance, mainly due to falling in love with the daughter of one of the feuding sisters. After a nurse is found murdered within the old family mansion, now home to the other sister and family, that daughter becomes a nurse within that house to investigate the strange events.
This is all a bit convoluted, and the romance angle is highly stressed here, but yet is believable and doesn’t turn out as expected. The suspense is somehow lacking for all the sneaking around in the spooky house at night, but it does hold your interest. I was afraid at first that this would developed into a dreary HIBK mystery, but it never does.
