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. A sudden interest in the occult swept through the English village of Plummergen, with Ouija boards replacing the best china in many a cozy cottage. It might be quite the thing for maiden ladies and persnickity aunts, but it wasn't Miss Seeton's cup of tea ...until Scotland Yard requested she go undercover to investigate some sinister shenanigans in the Kentish countryside. A flim-flam was afoot in the local witches coven ...and magic could be a prelude to murder most foul. Serene amidst every kind of skullduggery, retired art teacher Miss Seeton steps in where Scotland Yard stumbles. Armed with nothing more than her sketchpad and umbrella, she is at every turn the most lovable and unlikely master of detection. AUTHOR: Heron Carvic (1913-1980) was an actor and writer, most recognisable today for his voice portrayal of the character Gandalf in the first BBC Radio broadcast version of The Hobbit. He started writing the Miss Seeton novels in the 1960s, after using her in a short story. He later recalled that Miss Seeton upped and demanded a book .
