Detection Unlimited book. The reason she is still a popular author – she was a very good writer. Jun 08, 2012 Melissa rated it really liked it. Shelves: nook-books. Detection Unlimited was the last of Heyer's mysteries. So far, it's actually the only one I've read because my mother happened to have her original copy and passed it along to me.

Even so, the village is shocked when he is found in his garden with a bullet through his brain. r, the village squire, a breeder of Pekinese dogs and a Polish engineer

The Sergeant, concerned, said: I'm sorry we walked into Mrs. Midgeholme, sir, wasting your time like that! If I'd known, I'd have warned you about her. You'd have been wasting your time to have done so, said Harbottle, from the seat beside the police-driver. He spoke in the resigned voice of one forced to tolerate a weakness of which he disapproved, but Hemingway said cheerfully: That's right, I do. You never know what they'll let fall. I picked up quite a lot from Mrs. Midgeholme.

Reviews about Detection Unlimited (7):
Georgette Heyer's mysteries are to die for :)
Other than the obligatory body there is no violence, and while there is a charming romance there isn't any sex. I always enjoy the plot and the dialogue is very accurate of the times.
I have all her books and enjoy rereading them.
If you haven't read her books you have been missing out!
I have read nearly all of Georgette Heyer's mysteries and Regency romance novels, and a couple of her historical fictions. She is one of my very favorite authors. Her characters, even the minor ones, have depth and dimension. This mystery, though, was less riveting than most of her books. The unwinding of the mystery was not all that compelling, and the characters were not as interesting. I would still recommend this book, but if you haven't read any Georgette Heyer, I wouldn't recommend starting with this one.
This is GH's 4rth & last book with Inspector Hemingway. Copyright 1953.

Well, the first 2 chapters were so boring I had to stop & read something else for a while. Fortunately, after that we get the murder & the book becomes much more interesting. I didn't guess correctly "who dunnit".
I love Inspector Hemingway. He's a "toot". I loved the Ultimas too ;)
I started off reading Georgette Heyer's historical romances and am a big fan, and have in the past few years started reading her mystery books, which are more contemporary (early to mid 20th century). Most of them are quite entertaining, and you see some of the same characters pop up (especially Superintendent Hannasyde and Sergeant/Inspector Hemingway). However, I felt that this book was a letdown. The first two-thirds of the book was somewhat interesting but I found the last part of the book when the murderer and the motive was revealed very dry and boring. None of the characters were memorable. I'd recommend reading Death in the Stocks, They Found Him Dead and Behold, Here's Poison instead.

Georgette Heyer was the master of this elegant genre. I wish she had written more. Characters are fully developed and the plots are riveting.
Good product, good price, prompt delivery
The cast of characters is less hateful, generally, than in some of Heyer's mysteries, but most of them are not very closely engaged with the developing plot. The central ruse is clever and the references to past cases rewards the faithful reader. The depiction of class during a time of change and the exigencies of the landed gentry are nicely woven into the story.
If you enjoyed the type of English mysteries written in the thirties and forties, you'll feel right at home with Heyer. She has all the crisp dialog and graphic descriptions of Christie along with a plausible plot without resorting to dozens of red herrings to heighten the suspense. All in all the best read I've found in this genre in years.
