Death from High Places: A 1920s Mystery Novella (Lord Edgington Investigates 1.5) by Benedict Brown [REVIEW]


Perfect blue skies, a soft summer breeze and a view to die for!
Lord Edgington of Cranley Hall has some living to do. The next item to cross off on his list of grand ambitions is a serene balloon flight above his palatial estate. But, after a man falls to his death, the pleasant pursuit is interrupted, and the esteemed detective suspects foul play.

With the help of his hapless grandson, their loyal golden retriever and a couple of parachutes, Lord Edgington must solve the murder before the meddlesome police arrive to take control of the case. But, when all of the suspects seem like such nice chaps, it’s awfully difficult to spot a killer.

An Agatha-Christie-style novella with a dash of Downton Abbey thrown in, “Death from High Places” is a standalone, 1920s whodunit which immediately follows “Murder at the Spring Ball”, the first novel in the bestselling “Lord Edgington Investigates…” series of mysteries.


I so enjoy when an author goes back and fills in the gaps between two books in a series with a short novella.

Lord Edgington and his grandson/sidekick, Chrissy, are an entertaining duo. It is fun to watch how each of their minds work in order to solve the crime.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.
