Fiction & Literature; Classic crime
Retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard Stumbles. Armed with only her sketch pad and umbrella, she is at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection. This popular series was created by Heron Carvic; and continued after his death first by Hampton Charles, and later by Hamilton Crane. The year is 1940 and the British have their backs to the wall. Everyone is preparing for the battle that, as Winston Churchill said, would see the whole fury and might of the enemy turned upon us. Everyone including the young Miss Emily Seeton, London art teacher, who finds her strangely prophetic sketches do not go unnoticed by the secret services. At first suspected of being a fifth columnist, she soon finds herself recruited by the dashing Major Gerry Haynes and sent to carry out a very special observance task at a rural Spitfire factory. Faced with bombs, sabotage and murder, Miss Seeton must summon all her courage - it is after all her nature to Keep Calm and Carry On! The acclaimed prequel to the classic series of humorous mysteries. AUTHOR: Hamilton Crane is the pseudonym used by Sarah J. Mason when writing 13 sequels and one prequel to the Miss Seeton series. She has also written detective fiction under her own name.

Reviews for Miss Seeton's Finest Hour (Prequel)

Miss Seeton gets into wild drama with fine touches of farce . . . This is a lovely mixture of the funny and the exciting. * San Francisco Chronicle * Miss Seeton is a star. * Detroit News * A most beguiling protagonist! * New York Times * Miss Seeton is the most delightfully satisfactory character since Miss Marple. -- Ogden Nash This is not so much black comedy as black-currant comedy . . . You can't stop reading. Or laughing. * The Sun *
