Comments The English School of Murder

  • Mary Stanton

    Edwards isn't really well-known in the US, and it's a shame. She's a writer for the business magazine The Economist, and she must write these diabolically subversive cozies as an antidote to dealing with heavy world affairs. There's hilarious. And just slightly mean. Sort of Barbara Pym meets John Grisham.


  • Kate

    What did I think? I thought this book was pure rubbish. Unlikely characters, a plot that made no sense, and mediocre writing. I wouldn't bother, if I were you.


  • Carlin

    A very intelligent mystery. I had never read any books by this author and am so happy I chanced upon this one. It is #3 in the Robert Amiss series, but it worked fine as a stand alone. I loved the characters, especially Robert, who had left his Civil Service job under dubious circumstances. He was then recruited by policemen friends into applying for a position with the Knightsbridge School teaching English to both poor immigrants and wealthy foreigners. There are several murders associated with [...]

    A quirky murder but amusing nonetheless.


  • Nancy

    Sheer pleasure! Funny, intelligent story of a guy trying to find out what's really going at a school with too many suspicious deaths. Here's my favorite passage, which conveys the tone:"Rich had had a long apprenticeship with the wealthy and had learned the hard way what gave them pleasure. Early on he had sussed out how you made friends with those who were actually your employers. He modelled himself on those hairdressers and fashion designers of international repute who rubbed shoulders with p [...]

DC Ellis Pooley has suspicions about what is really going on at a language school which teaches English to newcomers to the country. Fortunately there is a vacancy at the school and Ellis wants Robert to apply for it and try and find out whether there was anything suspicious about a recent death of a teacher on the premises.Robert soon finds himse [...]

    This was a pleasant surprise. I found it on the withdrawn shelf at the library and picked it up to read on a trip. I happened to read it early and liked it so much I will look for more from this author. Typical English mystery, but full of interesting characters and a strange plot.


  • Ed

    A little to cozy but I will buy/read at least one more in this series since they don't seem to have that all too common to the genre device, the bunch of eccentric friends of the protagonist who comment on the action.


  • Shelly

    A fun read. Amiss is enjoyable, as are Milton and Pooley. The humor is great, and it was a good puzzle. The supporting characters were well-done. I even liked the cat. :)


  • Carolynne

    Robert agrees to help the police investigate a suspected crime at the Knightsbridge School of English, where he works. There are several murders before this clever mystery is solved.
