    A great Golden Age homage Full review at classicmysterywordpresscom

    I read this as part of the three book omnibus called Bertie The Prince of Wales Bertie is jaunting around the country seemingly without many cares or attendants He copes with a lady guest dying in the middle of dinner at a country house but finding a man shot dead in the middle of a pheasant shoot next day makes him decide to play sleuth Best for those who enjoy historical crime with many references to the rich and famous I downloaded an e ARC from Fresh Fiction This is an unbiased review

    This was a humerous mystery featuring a fictitious character based on the actual Albert Edward Prince of Wales son of ueen VictoriaBertie and his wife are invited for a weekend shooting party where the guests begin dying one by one Bertie fancies himself uite a sleuthand tries to solve the crimes I listened to this on tape while I scrapbooked British who done its are always fun This one had a little element of history mixed in Yes Bertie was the playboy in the book that he was reputed to be in life

    The narrator's voice is amusing in his self importance and the ease with which he switches opinions or takes another's point as his own and the world of grand country estates with fleets of servants preparing delicious meals was deliciously 19th century English but the characters were highly immoral and only offended at their immorality being discussed and didn't really appeal to me Also I KNEW the motive behind the crime right away although I didn't guess the murderer and actually found that part uite intriguing I don't think I'll look up any in this series

  5. Miss Lemon Miss Lemon says:

    Fluffy mystery Not bad but Peter sure plays hard on the insipid and ego exaggerated school of thought concerning the prince regent and then King Edward VII 'Bertie' Only thru luck and the assistance of deprecating servants and peers does Bertie conduct and solve the case Alright for a uick read but I won't bother with another one in the series for awhile

    I enjoyed this book very muchAlthough there were murders takingplace the author inserted much humor as well

  7. Lynn Lynn says:

    Witty amusing sometimes amusingly salacious Writing style seems like it was written in the 40’s so good job on that as it was written in the 70’s A ‘closed house party” romancemystery but the ‘romance’ is from the man’s perspective which is definitely different The mystery is clever and even when first person writer Bertie challenges me to guess the murderer before he ‘reveals all’ I’m still stumped But the culprit is reasonable and I could have figured it out – so fair play I liked the interesting information on the origin of the word Clue Not sure that I like Bertie he is very full of himself – but perhaps if I were a princess in 1890 I might be that way as well I do plan to read others in the series

    Bertie son of ueen Victoria and future King of England is at a shooting party at which an appalling number of game birds are killed and not a few of the attendees at the week long event Bertie considers himself a competent amateur detective so he takes upon himself to solve the murders without arousing the interest of the press and the public As the upper class attendees get bumped off one after another it is fascinating to watch the athletic jumps Bertie makes as he leaps from one unfounded conclusion after another I don't think this entry is as well done as the other two in this series and overall it is a very weak entry in the works of Lovesey

  9. Aidan Aidan says:

    Overall I found Bertie and the Seven Bodies to be a funnier tightly plotted outing than his first It is not just a very good Christie pastiche it is a fine mystery novel in its own right and I think it managed to blend its comedic and serious elements together very well to create something uite special and surprisingly originalFor a full review check out my blog Mysteries Ahoy

    This was fun A blend of some typical Christie like conceits locked room manor house party countdown serial murders with a roguish ruffian Crown Prince for a bumbling amateur sleuth Definitely a little silly It called to mind the game of Clue with its mix of stock characters victims and suspects alike
