About the Author
Number 1 best selling author of The Heathcliff Lennox series1920's, with over one million books sold.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, little Tubbs the foundling kitten, and the hapless Major Heathcliff Lennox at the centre of it all. Suddenly a whole world built itself upon the page and I just followed along.I've lived an itinerant life, always on the move having grown up in the military. My two sons are Jonathan and Sam Baugh who is married to Wendy and my 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.

I was captivated by this series after reading the first book. It has everything I enjoy in a mystery--intrigue, dasdardly deeds, and a cast of characters I'd like to know. Lenox, a comely man with class plus a penchant for his little dog and cat is irresistible. His exploits combine with a heady dose of upperclass atmosphere during my favorite time of all--Britain between the wars. Delve into to it and you'll soon be hooked.

I enjoy the main character, Lennox, and his butler, his dog and his cat as well as his compatriot in solving the murders. Karen's writing is packed with well written details and observations of life that give so much depth to the plot that it raises the level of reading one comes to expect in all books. I enjoy her books as well as I do another favourite, a renowned author that I read. I look forward impatiently to her next book each time I finish one as I now look forward to book 9 Wreath of Red Roses. I recommend this book to all who enjoy the the English murder mystery. Good reading!

Wonderful characterisation of both people and small animals makes this series a compulsive read for anyone nostalgic, or hankering after the morals and values of a long gone postwar age. It has a lovely feel for the class distinctions and naivetes of the time juxtaposed with sometimes very understandable wickednesses. Complete with butler, endearing little dog and cat. Just perfect.
