A review by vsbedford
Henrietta Who? by Catherine Aird


I received an eARC from the publishers and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

A solid, if a bit plodding, mystery. The writing is precise and the plot is nicely paced, but one of the early, central surprises felt a bit "So?" for me until I realized this was originally published in the 1960s. I don't think a reader that indulges in more than one or 15 mysteries a year will be overly surprised by the twists this novel takes; I recommend it as an entry into what could be a particularly winning series.
