I really don't care for Fraser-Sampson's take on the beloved characters of E.F. Benson (who were so well updated in the 1980s by Tom Holt).

In London’s Hampstead there is a serial killer at large - Five women so far. After a long investigation. DCI Tom Allen is quietly replaced and soon a suspect is discovered.
Believe that the tale lost the plot in its 'golden age of detection' section.
A NetGalley book.
