									Death in the Stocks
Inspector Hannasyde

Author: Georgette Heyer
Description

A bobby on his night rounds discovers a corpse in evening dress locked in the stocks on the village
green. Inspector Hannasyde is called in, but sorting out the suspects proves a challenge. Anyone in the
eccentric, exceedingly uncooperative Vereker family had the motive and means to kill Andrew Vereker,
who seemed to have been universally disliked. One cousin allies himself with the inspector, while the
victim's half-brother and sister, each of whom suspects the other, markedly try to set him off the scent.
To readers' delight, the killer is so cunning (not to mention the author), that the mystery remains until the
very end...PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER:"Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks
reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who
appreciate her style and wit."Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC"Reading Georgette Heyer is
the next best thing to reading Jane Austen."Publishers Weekly"Wonderful characters, elegant, witty
writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only
aspire to."Katie Forde
