Bleakley Brothers Mystery: What Manor of Murder? Press Reviews

What Manor of Murder? is a classic murder mystery for younger readers. Its author, Christopher William Hill, clearly knows this genre inside out, and packs the story with countless classic crime tropes. Spooky old mansions, gruesome murders, suspicious-looking servants and enigmatic inspectors, give the book the feel of a good old Agatha Christie romp, but the characters' youth and a raft of spiffing good jokes make it perfect for a young audience. * Books for Keeps * With a period setting, this is an intriguing and absorbing book, with a super cast of characters who are the perfect mix. * Parents in Touch * A mystery that would baffle Sherlock Holmes himself! * Teachwire * Traditional who-dunnit in a sort of Enid Blyton/Agatha Christie blend, with an added hint of Snicket! Good macabre period read involving butlers, isolated gothic mansions and eccentric uncles & aunts... * Peters Books *

About Christopher William Hill

Christopher William Hill was born in Truro, in Cornwall - a little jaundiced, but that was to be expected in the grim days of the 1970s. His mother was a former nurse, so Christopher grew up with a copy of Black's Medical Dictionary to hand, which was ideal reading matter for an enthusiastic hypochondriac. He liked acting and putting on silly voices, and collecting ancient relics which he gathered in a large walk-in wardrobe that called his 'museum'. Christopher loves walking, ocean liners, airships, Victoriana and cake shops.
