Review: The White Cottage Mystery by Margery Allingham

Eric Crowther knew everybody's secrets, so there was no shortage of suspects when he was found shot at the White Cottage.

Chief Inspector Challenor and his son Jerry had to look deep into everyone's past - including the dead man's - before they could be sure who had pulled the trigger.

With a country house, blackmail and murder, The White Cottage Mystery has all the making for a classic cozy mystery.

E-galley received for review.

For a book that is just over a hundred pages this took me a disproportionate amount of time to read. The writing just didn't flow particularly well for ease of reading.

The mystery itself was intriguing and well crafted. It had twists and turns and red herrings almost worthy of Agatha Christie herself, and the ending was certainly a nice surprise!

I highly recommend this for vintage mystery fans and Christie fans in general who will appreciate the familiar surroundings and the romantic angle.
