Rate this:
Summer 1923, and as the village of Queensferry prepares for the annual Ferry Fair and the walk of the Burry Man, feelings are running high. With his pagan greenery, his lucky pennies and the nips of whisky he is treated to wherever he goes, the Burry Man has much to offend stricter souls like the minister or temperance pamphleteer. And then at the Fair, in full view of everyone -- including Dandy Gilver, invited to hand out the prizes -- the Burry Man falls down dead. If he has been poisoned then the list of suspects includes anyone with a bottle of whisky in the house, and, here at Queensferry, that means just about everyone.

(The second book in the Dandy Gilver series)

Very well done - this is an undervalued series. The author leaves you with more than just a clever mystery (much of which the reader can figure out) - she provides a surprise twist at the end...
