Publisher's Summary

A majestic road trip across England filled with stunning landscapes, incredible sights, and the odd dead body along the way.

Lord Edgington and his grandson (along with a surprising number of servants) are going on a summer holiday. Setting off in their convoy of luxury cars, there are wonders to behold and mysteries to uncover. But when they arrive at the Lake District for a reunion with old friends, a tragedy from decades earlier hangs over the dilapidated Chandos Grove estate. After a member of the party is murdered, it will take the legendary investigator’s every last wit to catch the killer and solve a mystery that has haunted him for 50 years.

Death on a Summer’s Day is another funny and fast-moving 1920s murder mystery full of quirky characters and twisting plots. An Agatha Christie-style whodunit featuring a dash of Downton Abbey and a detective duo with heart and humor, the third book in the Lord Edgington Investigates… series will charm and surprise you from the very first minute.

Narrated by George Blagden from the TV shows Vikings and Versailles and the Oscar-winning film Les Misérables.

Witty and fun

I read the first book in the series and thought it was OK. Each one gets better and better. The narrator is fabulous switching between the hapless teenaged Christopher and the brilliant and erudite Lord Eddington without skipping a beat. A very fun series.

Excellent in everyway

Those of you who are Heathcliff Lennox fans, you will love these series. I could not press the pause button for some reason. Cant wait for the next books to be available on Audible. The problem with these books is that you never know what to get next because the bar is set so high.

Successfully Entertaining.

Another enjoyable mystery novel by Mr. Brown which includes twists and turns, fascinating characters, and interesting detail from his historical research, making the characters and events match the time period entertainingly. George Blagden’s reading brings the characters and events to life effectively.

favorite story yet

I loved the unique nature of the characters, including their names. I also enjoyed Chrissy's first venture into romance and realized with great sorrow how much our over exposure into all things sexual in our modern times has robbed our youth of romance. such an important milestone in life. The author's notes are also a great joy once again but can only be appreciated after the book is read. No peeking before hand. Just a very well written and enjoyable book series and this one is a stand out.
