About the Author
Jane Aiken Hodge was born in Massachusetts to Pulitzer prize-winning poet, Conrad Aiken, and his first wife, writer Jessie McDonald. Hodge was 3 years old when her family moved to Great Britain, settling in Rye, East Sussex, where her younger sister, Joan, who would become a novelist and a children's writer, was born.
From 1935, Jane Hodge read English at Somerville College, Oxford University, and in 1938 she took a second degree in English at Radcliffe College. She was a civil servant, and also worked for Time Magazine, before returning to the UK in 1947. Her works of fiction include historical novels and contemporary detective novels. In 1972 she renounced her United States citizenship and became a British subject.

Mrs ffeathers, of Featherstone Hall, is a manipulative old woman who deletes in keeping her family tied to her apron strings by threatening to stop their allowances. She has to be one of the most unpleasant characters I have ever come across in fiction and like her relatives I didn't mourn her death. But the solution to the mystery of who killed her has to wait for almost half a century before it will be solved.
I did enjoy this intriguing crime story and I liked Patience as a character. The solution is ingenious as are all the ramifications of the story. The book is well written and the characters believable. I recall reading this author's historical novels many years ago but I only read a few of the crime stories. I am looking forward to reading them now that they are being released as e-books and I shall revisit the historical novels too.
Was glad to find a couple on Amazon.
A good easy read.
I travel a lot, so ebooks are wonderful to me.
