About the Author

1920's, Cozy crime, Traditional Detectives, Downton Abbey - I love them! Along with my family, my friends, my dog, and my cat. At age 60 I decided to write. I don't know why but suddenly the stories came pouring out along with the characters. Eccentric uncles, stalwart butlers, idiosyncratic servants, machinating Countesses, Mr Fogg the dog, and the hapless Major Heathcliff Lennox at the center of it all. Suddenly a whole world built itself upon the page and I just followed along... I've lived an itinerate life, always on the move having grown up in the military. My two sons are Jonathan and Sam Baugh, married to Laura and Wendy respectively. Grandchildren are Scarlett, Hugo, Charlie, Joshua and Isabella Rose. We are infinitely fortunate in each other. My dear husband is Krov Menuhin, ex-US Special Forces, and documentary filmmaker. He is the eldest son of the violinist, Yehudi Menuhin.

Reviews

Karen Baugh Menuhin's second mystery with WWI veteran Heathcliff Lennox is perfect for fans of traditional detective mysteries. The waning life of post-war England is spot on--the loyal servants, some of whom served as bat men in the war, the ambiance of old crumbling manor houses, the dialogue--all make the book a delightful read. Mr. Fogg, Lennox's sweet dog, is joined by Mr. Tubbs, an orphaned cat. Inspector Swift re-appears, much to both men's dismay. Ms. Menuhin has a way of incorporating touches of Downtown Abbey with war details along with humor. I read this book via Kindle Unlimited but have added it permanently to my library for re-reading again (and again).

Excellent Mystery. Don't pick up unless you have time to read it all She does not give away "who done it" until the very end and it still makes sense. I love her characters and hopes she finds time to write a lot more books.

Fast paced mystery. Very well written and fast paced. A very good page turner. Did not see the end coming. Highly recommend this series.

What fun this book was! Delightful story...kept me laughing at times and thoroughly entertained. Really if one wants an entertaining mystery, this is it! Hope everyone will enjoy this book as much as I did!

Terrific cozy English house mystery! I absolutely loved this book! It was really hard to put down. The characters were all so great. I can't get enough of the old fashioned English house party mystery.

An Agatha or Dorothy Sayres style that I thought went out of fashion In these days

Well done, satisfying, wanting the next one! I will heartedly recommend. Puzzle without gore, depressive scenes, or bodily fluids.
