This is a traditional English mystery, of the kind publishers rarely publish anymore. I miss them! If you miss them too, you might want to give this series a try. The hero, Hugo Hawksworth, lives in a castle owned by the Earl of Selchester. The new Earl (who until recently was an American classics professor) and his daughters also live there, in another wing, and quite a bit of the story takes place in the castle (I love castles!).
As the book opens, it’s the 1950’s and someone is leaking secrets from a classified government facility near the castle. Then a physics expert from the facility goes missing and is feared to have defected. Hugo is charged with tracking him down. The castle inhabitants and the village become involved in Hugo’s search and are all gathered together for the big finale.
I enjoyed this story and spending time in the village and the castle.
