Product Description:

As the holidays approach, all is merry and bright for Inspector Witherspoon, Mrs. Jeffries, and the staff at Upper Edmonton Gardens...but murder knows no season.

MURDER UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR

Christopher Gilhaney isn’t a popular man, and he proves why once again when he insults every guest at Abigail Chase’s Guy Fawkes Night dinner party. When Gilhaney is shot dead under the cover of the night’s fireworks, his murder is deemed a robbery gone wrong. But when the case hasn’t been solved six weeks later, Inspector Witherspoon is called upon to find the killer—and quickly!

With Christmas almost here, Inspector Witherspoon and everyone in his household is upset at the possibility of having to cancel their holiday plans—all to solve a case that seems impossible. Only Luty Belle, Ruth, and Mrs. Goodge refuse to give up and let the crime become a cold case. In fact, the American heiress, the charming next-door neighbor, and the formidable cook use all of their persuasive powers to get the others on board, because these three wise women know justice doesn’t take time off for Christmas.



Christmas is just days away, and all of Inspector Witherspoon’s household and associates have plans for the holidays. The Inspector himself is joining a house party with Lady Canonberry, and his right-hand man, Constable Barnes, is planning a get away with his wife. Things are quiet around the police station, that is until a six weeks old unsolved murder case gets dumped in Witherspoon’s lap.

The previous detective has done next to nothing useful towards solving the murder of Christopher Gilhaney, a newcomer to the area who was just about to begin an accounting job at a local firm. It seems Gilhaney had an uncanny sense with numbers, and he’d been hired to review the books and look for discrepancies. But before he begins his new job, Gilhaney is killed, and now Witherspoon must find out why, and more importantly, who pulled the trigger.

Although they are all dismayed at the prospect of changing their much-anticipated holiday plans, Mrs. Jeffries and her crew swing into action, hoping they can turn up some clues to a crime that occurred weeks ago. Their initial efforts are quite discouraging, but as the days go by, the small bits of information they gather, along with Witherspoon and Barnes’ footwork, begin to paint an ugly picture of who may have wanted Gilhaney dead, and why.

Mrs. Jeffries and The Three Wise Woman is the thirty-sixth installment of this pleasant Victorian mystery series by author Emily Brightwell. The setting of the holiday season adds another level of charm to an already charming cast of characters, and the disappointment that the characters all share at the prospect of spoiled holiday plans is tangible. No one will have a chance at a Merry Christmas unless Inspector Witherspoon is successful, and once more the team works in unison, each bringing different aspects to the story. Put your holiday preparations aside and spend some time with a most engaging and entertaining mystery this season – Mrs Jeffries is waiting with a fresh pot of tea! Merry Christmas!
