produtos com o Prime Encontre diversos livros escritos por Berkeley Anthony Medawar Tony com timos preos There almost always is something comforting in reading a golden age detective Not too serious not too silly either Cozy entertaining and yes sometimes the blatant racism or antisemitism can dampen my enthusiasm But this was ridiculous Never read a novel sexist than this one The scenes concerning the niece made me cringe at first and eventually laugh with uneasiness Won't continue this series This is the second mystery featuring Roger Sheringham and was first published in 1926 It follows “The Layton Court Mystery” 1925 and is followed by “Roger Sherringham and the Vane Mystery” in 1927 However while most of the books in the series have been re released and now most are on kindle author Anthony Berkeley refused to allow this to be re printed and it has now become difficult to track down Indeed while the first of Anthony Berkeley’s Sherringham novels was published anonymously the author of this novel was given as “by the author of the ‘Layton Court Mystery’” and Berkeley who often used pen names did not put his name as author until the third in the seriesAt the start of this book Roger Sherringham is staying with his friend Alec Grierson who we met in “The Layton Court Mystery” and who is now married to Barbara Shannon It is a year since events at Layton Court and Sherringham is interested in a case of murder which he has been reading about in the newspapers A Mrs Bentley is accused of poisoning her husband with arsenic and is soon to stand trial for her life Public opinion is against Mr Bentley’s French wife – known to be having a love affair his family and friends became suspicious of her behaviour and turned against her after her husband’s death However Sherringham is convinced she is innocent and is determined to clear her name With Grierson eager to help out again plus the fact that Alec has family in the town of Wychford where the poisoning occurred the two set out to investigateIt has to be said that this is at times a rather silly storyline Anthony Berkeley was determined that his amateur detective would not always be correct and sure of himself as Sherlock Holmes always seemed to be Therefore Sherringham jumps to conclusions makes mistakes and often berates himself Besides that he has no basis for believing Mrs Bentley being innocent than the newspaper stories supposedly read by all the other readers who have failed to jump to the same conclusions Alec Grierson is little than a sounding board as is young Sheila Purefoy; the daughter of Alec’s cousin who they stay with while in Wychford Although Berkeley’s character is not a misogynist much of the language used here seems written to allow the author to rant about his own particular issues and much of them have to do with women During one chapter Sherringham claims that “nearly all women are idiots” and continues that they are “not over burdened with brains” Despite the fact that he later values women’s opinions and respects female characters within the novel it may have been one of the reasons he later decided to keep this novel out of print There is also much horseplay between Alec and Sheila which to modern eyes certainly seems a little inappropriate – it ranges from throwing things at each other to a great deal of spanking These may have been the reasons why Berkeley decided to leave this mystery out of the series when new editions were printed but I do have to wonder whether it was because Sherringham admits to Alec during the novel that the reason he is not married is because the woman he is in love with is already married – a circumstance that Berkeley also shared Regardless this is certainly not a bad mystery The setting of a small village and good range of suspects are classic Golden Age while the investigation is fun to follow I am delighted that I managed to track down a copy of this book and found it a very enjoyable mysteryRated 35 355 Full review can be found at Ah another Sheringham novelThis time Berkeley gave us his commentary on British law He commented that the innocent until proven guilty thing doesn't exactly ring true as the words said It was actually uite the contrary Why not? When a case is in the public interest public opinion seems to have decided that the accused party is indeed guilty The until proven guilty part makes people focused in trying to prove the guilt of the accused opening a window for confirmation bias which ironically has been affecting Roger Sheringham often than he could rememberAs the title suggest it was a case of poisoning Mr Bentley died apparently from arsenic poisoning His wife immediately step in the spotlight as a suspect All the evidence found points to her Public seems to had made their decision whether Mrs Bentley is innocent or not But not Roger he seeks to be on the defense side; trying to build a theory in favor of Mrs Bentley Of course he does so with a little notion in mind Mrs Bentley could be guilty after allThis is my fifth book by Berkeley and boy do I still amazed by his capability to throw false solutions right into my face And the thing about his false solution is it was beautifully fit to the facts almost rings true as the actual explanation itself I could never get tired of BerkeleyPSReading the foreword of my edition Berkeley seemed to have been embarrassed by a chapter in which a young girl was given a traditional punishment And you know what? I cringed all the way that particular scene
