Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hare's writing is sublime... this author was years ahead of his time." ― CrimeSquad

"...incisive social commentary, vivid descriptions and nuanced interactions between characters... a book modern readers should not miss." ― CrimeReview

"This light-hearted classic from 1951 slips down as easily as eggnog on Christmas morning." ― Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express 'Murder and Mystery Books of the Year'

"Faber’s welcome republication of vintage crime bestsellers continued with An English Murder by Cyril Hare, a wintry country house whodunit from 1951." ― Mark Lawson, Guardian 'Best Crime and Thrillers 2017'

"Six people around the table on Christmas Eve in a large country house include the chancellor of the exchequer, the leader of a fascist movement, a Jewish historian and assorted toffs. They start dying, one by one. Snow prevents detectives from coming to investigate. Written in 1951, Cyril Hare’s novel tells a satisfying tale of politics and wealth, with an unexpected denouement." ― Times 'Books of the Year: Crime'

About the Author
