In this installment in the Mrs. Jeffries mystery series, Smythe's friend, Blimpey Groggins asks Inspector Gerald Witherspoon's household staff, to investigate a murder. His friend, Tommy Odell, has been found guilty of killing a woman and is scheduled to hang for the crime in a few weeks, but Blimpey is convinced that Tommy is innocent. The staff agrees to help, but they realize it's going to be difficult to find clues in a case that is considered already solved. To complicate things further, it wasn't Witherspoon's case; it belonged to Inspector Nivens, Witherspoon's nemesis. Mrs. Jeffries and the rest of the staff have their work cut out for them if they wish to save an innocent man from hanging.

Emily Brightwell has done it once again. Even after writing over 20 Mrs. Jeffries books, she manages to keep the series from going stale. Having the staff investigate a murder that is considered already solved was a great plot device and worked well. It also ups the animosity between Witherspoon and Nivens and opens up lots of possibilities for plot developments in future books in the series. What makes this series so good is how the characters continue to develop in each book and especially Inspector Witherspoon in this book. Some fans of the series will be disappointed that there's no Luty and Hatchet in this entry, but there is plenty of Ruth Cannonberry in exchange. It was also nice to see more of Blimpey and Brightwell adds a neat twist at the end of the book to make his character even more likable. The mystery is nicely plotted and while I thought I knew who the murderer was, I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was wrong.

Highly recommended!

Mrs. Jeffries and her band of amateur investigators are racing the hangman in the latest entry in this series. And they are at a disadvantage because the case was not handled by their own Inspector Witherspoon. Worse yet, the case was investigated by the dread Inspector Nivens, an ambitious detective who envies and despises Witherspoon.

Late one night in an apparent street robbery, Mrs. Caroline Muran was efficiently shot to death and her husband was hit in the head. Soon after the crime, pickpocket Tommy Odell was found to have pawned Mr. Muran's pocket watch.

After an investigation by Nivens, Odell was convicted of the murder and scheduled to hang. But a friend of Odell's mother doubts his guilt and asks the Witherspoon household's servants for their help - just a few days before the execution date.

Others have doubted the thoroughness of Nivens' investigation. When the victim's brother - thought to have died in the US - turns up alive and well in London and asking questions, the investigation is reopened. Nivens is livid - and then he's beyond rage when the reopened case is assigned to Witherspoon.

The victim was a good woman who ran the family business well and cared for the welfare of the workers. Mrs. Jeffries and her crew must sort through facts implicating people who had business or personal reasons for wanting her dead - and find the killer before more deaths occur.

A strong book in the series. We don't see Luty or her butler, but the lovely and spirited neighbor Ruth Cannonberry lends her talents to this investigation.

I have become a great fan of the writing of Emily Brightwell. The Mrs, Jeffries series introduces you to the British 1880's downstairs staff, headed by housekeeper Hepsibah Jeffries. Each of her fellow workers are well developed from book to book, so readers are able to follow the ups and downs. The master of the house, Inspector Witherspoon, comes from humble beginnings, but inherits the mansion and staff when a beloved aunt passes away. We watch as the police homicide inspector, who started in the file room, learns his craft through hints gather by the downstairs collaborators. It's all good fun, each story an enjoyable visit to another time and place

in this age of realism, this cozy mystery and co operation is fabulous escape. Diversity of status and income. Diversity of interests. Working together and trusting each other. Really a fast read.

Mrs. Jeffries is my favorite bedtime reading.

Though these are all typically formulaic, having so many character protagonist sleuths who compliment and engage the plot of the main character each with there own personalities, keeps the story interesting, and more faceted, so that they all seem to share as main character!

I'm hooked on Mrs. Jeffries. The problem is I started in the middle of the series. Now I'm not going all the way back but want to catch up on some of their cases. Good wholesome characters.
Enjoyed this book as much as I have enjoyed all the others in the Mrs. Jeffries series! They are very entertaining and haven't disappointed. Sometimes you can guess who the murderer is but not how they did it- and sometimes you can't "finger" him/her!!!
