Publisher's Summary

Hugh Everton was intent on nothing more than quietly drinking in the second-rate hotel he found himself in on England's south coast—and then in walked his old flame Lucy and her new husband and ex-Judge, Gregory Bath. Entreated by Lucy to join her party for an evening back at the Bath residence, Hugh is powerless to resist, but when the night ends with the judge's inexplicable murder he is pitched back into a world of chaos and crime—a world he had tried to escape for good.

First published in 1952, The Widow of Bath offers intricate puzzles, international intrigue and a richly evoked portrait of post-war Britain, all delivered with Bennett's signature brand of witty and elegant prose.

Great narration, overdone plot

There's a bit too much going on in this book for me. I love these old mystery books,but this one got a bit too convoluted, with too many plots and distractions . It's like the author had 2 or 3 unfinished books and wound them all together around this murder plot.
Annoying characters and an overdone plot but great narration.
