A Christmas Visitor by Anne Perry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was one of the best of the Christmas series. We meet again Henry Rathbone from the William Monk series who is the godfather of Antonia whose husband has just been murdered. All of the brothers are to come home from far away places to the Dreghorn family home for Christmas. Poor Henry has to meet each at the station and break the sad news that their brother is dead and appears to be murdered.
The plots has many twists and turns and you find yourself hoping that none of people are to be found guilty, but each one has a secret to hide and, as in so many mystery novels, it is their little secrets that cause them to act in a suspect manner.
The book is short but interesting enough to remember who the characters are and what they have been doing as your reading time is shortened by the rush of Christmas.
