LINSCOTT, GILLIAN - Absent Friends

Gordonsville, Virginia, U.S.A. St Martins Pr. 1999, 1st Ed. (ISBN: 0312207654) Original Cloth. Book, In the 1918 general election, after the war, English women finally get the vote. Nell Bray, a London suffragist, is looking for a district where she can stand for election. Lucinda Sollers, from rural Herefordshire, asks Nell to run in her husband's district. Sollers thinks her husband's "accidental" death was murder and asks Nell to investigate while campaigning. This eighth Nell Bray mystery is loaded with interesting history, unique characters, and vivid descriptions of the English countryside. Linscott offers a surprising murder case while weaving in sobering thoughts on the cost of World War I and a realistic, witty view of politics; she also has fun with psychics. The suffragist angle should appeal to fans of Miriam Grace Monfredo's Glynis Tryon series. John Rowen All of our books are in the shop, and are 'real' books. We try to post the same day as the order.
