    A Superbly Crafted Mystery!

    This is a cracking mystery - a real enigma! At his villa in the French Riviera, Malcolm Bryce-Rutherford gathers relatives and people of importance in his life, informing them of his impending death and the bizarre way he intends to leave his not inconsiderable inheritance to one of them. As we get to know these nine people, circumstances become more and more bizarre, eventually leading to murder and the suspicions of 'whodunnit'! I have read several of Vivian Conroy's novels, and she writes beguiling mysteries but I think this one tops them all! This is worthy of the best authors around and could easily be mistaken for an Agatha Christie tale! Really well plotted with plenty of suspects and so much going on - I think I had everyone in the frame at some time or another! As with all the best stories, I couldn't put it down - especially as I neared the end and thought anyone could be the perpetrator. The characters are widely varied and well-drawn - and the inclusion of a friendly dog only added to my enjoyment. This is a stunning mystery set in the 1920's and I can't help but imagine it on the small screen; it would be compulsive viewing! This deserves each and every one of it's five shiny, sparkling stars, and a hearty recommendation from me to all lovers of a superbly crafted mystery.

    A Testament to Murder

    Don't waste your time or your money on this amateurish attempt at a mystery novel. Conroy needs a good dictionary and a better editor.

    Must read for Christie fans!

    A terminally ill man calls his family and friends together to compete for his entire fortune in a Testament to Murder. Malcolm invites his ne’er-do-well nephew, Hugh, and Hugh’s gold-digging American wife, Patty, for a weeklong visit to Malcolm’s extensive estate. Malcolm’s ex-wife, Cecily, and his ex-partner, Howard, along with their 16-year-old son, Kenneth, are also invited. Theodora, his former secretary, also joins the party. After everyone arrives, Malcolm announces that he is dying. He plans to rewrite his will every night leaving his entire fortune to one of his guests or staff. If he dies the following day, and that person is still staying in his mansion, that person will win it all. Even though mysterious events occur, including a murder, none of the guests leave because of their dreams of riches. A French country house, a plethora of motives, and murder! If it sounds like an Agatha Christie novel, that’s because it is an homage to her work. All the characters were deftly drawn with clear wants and needs. However, Agatha’s mysteries were always, at least potentially, solvable by armchair detectives. A Testament to Murder would be difficult to solve without information withheld until the conclusion. Still, what a slam-bam conclusion it was! It is a highly recommended thrill ride. 4 stars! Thanks to Canelo and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
