Publisher's Summary

Downton Abbey meets Agatha Christie with a touch of Wodehouse and a dog of distinction.

Who killed Sir Crispin Gibbons? A wedding invitation and news of mischief that could be murder takes Lennox to the Earl of Bloxford's country estate. He, soon, finds himself in a world of purloined artworks, forgeries, and a priceless Bloxford beauty. 

But who are the Bloxford beauties? And why are they the focal point around which death swirls?

Lennox must confront life-long friends, unscrupulous artists, and dealers to finally unravel a plot so complex that even his old adversary, Chief Inspector Swift of Scotland Yard, is perplexed.

Loved It!

Great new cozy mystery series and talented author. It's humorous and an interesting mystery series. I read the first one and immediately purchased this one (book 2 of the series). Sam Dewhurst-Phillips did an exceptional narration. Please keep them coming.

Second in the Series did not disappoint!

The first in this Heathcliff Lennox series was brilliant. The dialogue was delightful. The development of characters & plot was so enjoyable. I really hoped the second in the series would live up to the enjoyment of the first. And The Black Cat Murders was just as wonderful! Karen Menuhin paints such a colorful picture story with evocative prose. Sam Dewhurst-Phillips breathes life in to each character in such a way I wish he would read more of the audio books in my library! Each nuanced tone, accent, cadence is so believable! I enjoyed this completely and am a bit sad the story came to an end. Highly recommend this audio book!

Lots of fun

I loved this tongue in cheek mystery. Excellent narrator who I hope to hear lots more from. I iMagine it depends on your sense of humor and what you find funny, but I chuckled out loud many times and found the narrator’s performance added to the humor In a way I haven’t come across in a while.

Liked the story but the narrator was GREAT

Very good story but the narrator really brought it to life. I’d give him more stars if I could.

Enjoyable book with superb narrator

I found myself laughing out loud at some of the narration of the main character. Storyline was good even though it was predictable. The narration of Sam Dewhurst-Phillips was superb and really made this book for me

Lovely, perfect winter read

I read the first in the series and was excited to see both available on Audible. Excellent writing and narration. Make no mistake this is not a cozy fluffy mystery but there is a lot of humor and cohesive content. It's a win win!
