    1 thought on “Hangman's Curfew”

    1. I liked Mrs. Bradley as a character the best in this book, but I was hopelessly lost in the plot. I spent a good deal of the book floundering and trying to figure out what was happening. This may be a weakness in me as a reader, but it left me with a or impression of the book.

    2. I had diminished expectations of Hangman's Curfew on account of other reviews (bearing in mind that I distrust reviews which complain about literary references in a book) and its rarity, but was pleasantly surprised. It was irritating to discover that I owned the wrong edition of The Oxford Book of Ballads (I have only the newer one, but have ordered Q's version for my later review), but it was not that crippling to enjoying the plot. Strangely absent was any mention of the War, as though this b [...]

    3. Mrs Bradley finds herelf being lead to take an interest in a case by means which she doesn't altogether care for. She feels she is being manipulated and that the case may not actually exist and even if it does it may not be what it seems. Someone's uncle might be about to die from poisoning and when Mrs Bradley visits what appears to be the house concerned she suspects strychnine in the cocoa she is given. After that episode she starts to think there might be something in it after all.The chase [...]

    4. Another really strong mystery from Gladys Mitchell. A lot of energy, a strong story though too much poetry and speaking in quotations for me, personally. However, the supporting cast was strong enough to make up for the quotes! I especially enjoyed the Yorkshire dialect of Tom and his mother, and enjoyed Elspat as well. I may be biased -- there is a Gillian in this story who is accomplished at rugby tackles, so I was bound to enjoy this.

    5. Delightful PlottingI'm so glad to read Gladys Mitchell in print again. I enjoyed her clever stories many years ago and her writing transcends time. I wonder what she might think of all her famous Mrs. Bradley today?
