The Third Key - Gerald Verner

A classic British murder mystery with all the right ingredients, a bucolic village with cottages and rose gardens, a big manor house, eccentric inhabitants, murder  ( of course) of a mysterious woman and in this case, a very sunny,summery feeling. Perfect, were  it not for the outdated attitude and opinions expressed by the author.They concern women and their place in society, women and divorce, imprisonment, death penalty....Admittedly, it was written several decades ago ,still...

Pity, because otherwise it would have been a perfect reading for one of those sunny afternoons in spring.
