A writer of many talents, Georgette Heyer was known for her mystery novels as well as historical fiction and Regency romances. "Why Shoot a Butler?" was her second mystery.
"The new heir to Norton Manor discovered the difficulty of keeping decent help when the butler got murdered on his night off. But why would anyone shoot a trusted old family retainer? A visiting barrister suspected it involved the mysterious lady at the scene of the crime, the gentleman snooping in the hall, and the second dead body in the fog - in a case of murder with a fatal touch of class"
From the Foreward: "To combine successfully mirth, mystery and suspense is one of the most difficult technical feats in writing, and only occasionally does an author appear who possesses the qualities necessary . . . Georgette Heyer is such a one. "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
