Come Way, Death by Gladys Mitchell

Mrs. Bradley Golden Age Mystery

Sir Rudri Hopkinson, an eccentric amateur archaeologist, is determined to recreate ancient rituals at the temple of Eleusis in Greece in the hope of summoning the goddess Demeter. He gathers together a motley collection of people to assist in the experiment, including a rival scholar, a handsome but cruel photographer and a trio of mischievous children. But when one of the group disappears, and a severed head turns up in a box of snakes, detective and psychoanalyst Mrs Bradley is called upon to investigate.

  1. Mrs. Bradley is one of the most unusual and interesting sleuths in the genre. I'm glad you featured her, Scott.
