The Dark Side of the Road: A country house murder mystery with a supernatural twist by Simon R. Green
A refreshingly fun spin on the classic English locked room mystery, involving murder most foul at a snowed in family manor. Green serves up a tale featuring all the usual suspects....including a Jeeves who isn't....and doesn't.
No one is who they appear to be, particularly Ishmael Jones, who not only isn't what he appears, even he's not quite sure what he is.
An entertaining read, written with a sly humor and a touch of Green's Nightside that will please both mystery purists and fans of subtler dark urban fantasy.
