Summary

Northanger Abbey follows seventeen-year-old Gothic novel aficionado Catherine Morland and family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen as they visit Bath, England. Catherine is in Bath for the first time. There she meets her friends such as Isabella Thorpe, and goes to balls. Catherine finds herself pursued by Isabella's brother, the rather rough-mannered, slovenly John Thorpe, and by her real love interest, Henry Tilney. She also becomes friends with Eleanor Tilney, Henry's younger sister. Henry captivates her with his view on novels and his knowledge of history and the world. General Tilney (Henry and Eleanor's father) invites Catherine to visit their estate, Northanger Abbey, which, from her reading of Ann Radcliffe's gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, she expects to be dark, ancient and full of Gothic horrors and fantastical mystery.

    Death pays a visit to Sarah Kelling's new boardinghouse in this delightful cozy mystery series from international bestselling author Charlotte MacLeod. Though the inheritance from her dearly departed Alexander was meant to set Sarah Kelling up for life, it vanishes quickly in the face of hounding from charitable organizations and the IRS. Facing the loss of her stately Back Bay brownstone, Sarah opens her home to lodgers—deciding she prefers a boardinghouse to the poorhouse. Soon she is cooking meals and serving tea for a cast of quirky residents, a cozy little family that would be quite happy were it not for the unpleasant presence of a certain Barnwell Augustus Quiffen—a man so rude that no one really minds when he is squashed beneath a subway car. Sarah replaces her lost boarder quickly, and the family dynamic is restored. But when another lodger dies suddenly, the boardinghouse appears to be cursed. Now it will take more than a glass of sherry to soothe Sarah’s panicked residents, and she must turn to detective Max Bittersohn for help before her boarders bolt. “The epitome of the ‘cozy’ mystery” (Mostly Murder), award-winning author Charlotte MacLeod’s Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn Mysteries have charmed readers the world over.

    	20-20 hindsight
    
    	On the Sunday before the start of the grand prix season, I went to two parties and committed a criminal conspiracy with the woman of my dreams. Monday I started on the slippery slope that would end when I learned that my friend betrayed me. Tuesday I intimidated the most powerful and least accountable government department of a sovereign democracy. Wednesday someone tried to kill me.
    
    	Just so you don’t get the idea I do that sort of thing all the time, we’ll start at one of the high points of my life, which happened on the second Sunday before the start of the grand prix season.
    
    	Oh, by the way, I’m Charlie Cartwright. How do you do?

    Cattle are found mutilated, sometimes located high up in trees. Prize-winning heifer Lulu disappears, and her watchman is found dead,  without a mark on his body. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson investigate, and brilliantly applying his astonishing powers of observation and logical deduction, Holmes explains the watchman's mystwerious death, and predicts the cattle mutilations will soon stop, which they do.
    
    	The case is closed, but a loose end remains, it cannot be explaines, and so Sherlock Holmes is not at all satisfied. He allows the case to be written up, but not published. In the course of two world wars the case became lost, but it was recently found, and is now published.as an ebook. For the first time ever you can now read the case of Sherlock Holmes and the Mutilated Cattle. The mutilated cattle events are probably the strangest things Holmes ever investigated.
    
    	If you like reading Sherlock Holmes cases, you will enjoy reading this most interesting one.
