The thrilling opener to a new Agatha Christie-style mystery series set in Poland

4 stars out of 5

"the sprightly narrative and vivid evocation of turn-of-the-century Poland make for an enjoyable tale"

Here, the meddlesome amateur sleuth is social climber Zofia Turbotyňska, who, in the course of organising a charity raffle at a local retirement home, stumbles on the mysterious disappearance of the eponymous widow. Her curiosity is further piqued when a second resident is found murdered and, aided by her faithful cook Franciszka, she begins to investigate. The waspish social one-upmanship – EF Benson in Mitteleuropa – may not be to everyone’s taste, but strong-minded Zofia is an appealing character and the sprightly narrative and vivid evocation of turn-of-the-century Poland make for an enjoyable tale.
