Editorial Reviews

Review

Bude, a popular British mystery writer during the 1930s and beyond, crafted a number of impossible murder novels that the British Library has reissued as part of a flood of resurrected mysteries written during the Golden Age of Murder.... An absorbing head-scratcher. (Connie Fletcher Booklist)

This is truly a wonderful book. I cannot say enough about it. The writing and use of language is superb and completely without flaws. (Joyce Fox NetGalley)

I will definitely read more of these books in the future! (Matthew Barnes NetGalley)

A good classic British whodunit. Good use of location and well written plot. Highly recommended to fans of the classic era. (Karen Kenyon NetGalley)

Originally published in 1937, this reissue in the British Library Crime Classics series is a clever closed-circle-of-suspects whodunit. (Publishers Weekly)

The Cheltenham Square Murder is an intriguing murder mystery of the gentle, cerebral variety. It is not fast paced the detective work could perhaps accurately be described as plodding but it is compelling. There is a real puzzle element to the murder that just demands to be cracked. It is a crime novel for those who enjoy unravelling complex plots, breaking seemingly airtight alibis and using the little grey cells to determine who is psychologically most likely to be a murderer. (Erin Britton Nudge Books)

I really enjoyed The Cheltenham Square Murder, it was an entertaining, complex mystery, with all the charm of 1930s England, the time when this book was written. With a quick pace and a baffling plot, this locked room mystery, set in a small square in England, has several obvious suspects with several good motives and iron-clad alibis. Combined with the bonhomie between Long and Meredith (no inter-departmental rivalry here!) it was an exceptionally delightful and intriguing read. (Tam Mc Goodreads)
