9781250060457: A Most Novel Revenge: An Amory Ames Mystery

Edgar Award-shortlisted author Ashley Weaver returns with A Most Novel Revenge, the charming next instalment in the delightful 1930s Amory Ames mystery series

“A pleasant reminder of Golden Age mysteries that keep you guessing until the denouement.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Fascinating and stylish characters fill out a finely tuned traditional mystery.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Well, darling, who do you suppose will turn up dead this time?”

With two murder investigations behind them and their marriage at last on steady ground, Amory and Milo Ames intend to winter quietly in Italy. The couple finds their plans derailed, however, when Amory receives an urgent summons to the English countryside from her cousin Laurel. At Lyonsgate, the country house of Laurel’s friend Reginald Lyons, Amory and Milo are surprised to discover an eccentric and distinguished group of guests have also been invited, led by the notorious socialite Isobel Van Allen.

After years of social exile, Isobel has returned to England to write a sequel to her scandalous first book, the thinly fictionalized account of a high society murder at the very country house to which the Ameses have been called. Her second incriminating volume, she warns the house’s occupants―all of whom were present when one of their companions was killed years ago―will tell everything that really happened that fateful night. But some secrets are meant to stay buried, and when a desperate person turns to murder, it’s up to Amory and Milo to sort through a web of scandal and lies to uncover the truth, and the identity of a killer.

Also out now in the Amory Ames mysteries: Murder at the Brightwell and Death Wears a Mask

About the Author:

ASHLEY WEAVER is the technical services coordinator at the Allen Parish Libraries in Oberlin, Louisiana.

She is the author of two previous Amory Ames mysteries, Murder at the Brightwell and Death Wears a Mask.

Review:

Praise for A Most Novel Revenge

"Reminiscent of many of Agatha Christie's famous "house party" mysteries, A Most Novel Revenge is a clever mystery with a pair of likable protagonists. Amory and Milo's witty repartee makes the story entertaining.... Ashley Weaver's charming style and interesting characters are sure to send readers looking for the first two Amory Ames mysteries (Murder at the Brightwell and Death Wears a Mask). Fans of Charles Todd, Susan Elia MacNeal and Jacqueline Winspear will appreciate the portrayal of 1930s England, as will anyone who enjoys deft historical mysteries." ―Shelf Awareness

"Captivating.... Fascinating and stylish characters fill out a finely tuned traditional mystery." ―Publishers Weekly

"A pleasant reminder of golden-Age mysteries that keep you guessing until the denouement." ―Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Amory Ames Mysteries

“Ashley Weaver takes Golden Age mystery elements and makes them her own with
charm and wit.” ―Fresh Fiction

“Fans with fond memories of Georgette Heyer’s mysteries set in the same period will be delighted with the gallery of suspects and the edgy romance.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Sure to appeal to Agatha Christie devotees.” ―Booklist

“It's all very Downton Abbey.... [Weaver] channels the ambience and spirit of British society during the post?World War I years.” ―Associated Press

“With a profound nod to the Golden Age of the British whodunit, Weaver creates a classic mystery, complete with a fashionable setting, a cast of upper-crust Brits, and witty prose.” ―Richmond Times-Dispatch
