Short Notes: Deadly Nightshade by Elizabeth Daly (1940)

I wasn’t too impressed by my first Henry Gamadge: Unexpected Night but also not put-off by the author. I am glad that the second one which again involved wills, children, impersonation, natural and unnatural parents, gypsies, poisoned berries read better than the first one. Rather boldly, I thought, the author also disregarded a literary/ social convention. I will certainly be reading the next in the series.

Have you read this series? How do you find it?

First Line: ON FRIDAY EVENING, September the eighth, 1939, Mr. Henry Gamadge sat beside his open library window, doing several things at once.

Publication Details: Felony and Mayhem, 2013

  1. Oh, so glad to hear you liked this one better, Neeru! Perhaps Even if I didn’t like Gamadge, myself, it’s nice when you see that staying with a series pays off.
