Description - Miss Seeton Mystery: Miss Seeton Rocks the Cradle (Book 13) by Hamilton Crane
The classic series of humorous cosy mysteries. "A most beguiling protagonist!" - New York Times "This is not so much black comedy as black-currant comedy . . . You can't stop reading. Or laughing." - The Sun From her discovery of an aristocratic infant abandoned in a village telephone booth, to dark doings amongst Scottish banks and braes, it's a rollercoaster ride for Miss Seeton in this adventure with a tartan touch. Grateful parents Lord and Lady Glenclachan sweep Miss S. northward to MacSporran Castle, their ancestral home, where, as her admiring reporter pal Amelita Forby (scenting a story and hot on her trail) puts it, 'Battling Brolly Finds Corpse Near Crag' not to mention tangling with Jacobites and searching for a fabled gold mine. As usual, the retired art teacher's inner eye sees to the essence of this heady Highland brew. Serene amidst every kind of skulduggery, this eccentric English spinster steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles, armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella! AUTHOR: Heron Carvic (1913-1980) was an actor and writer, most recognisable today for his voice portrayal of the character Gandalf in the first BBC Radio broadcast version of The Hobbit. He started writing the Miss Seeton novels in the 1960s, after using her in a short story. He later recalled that "Miss Seeton upped and demanded a book".
