The master of the Golden Age British-style detective novel presents his redoubtable sleuth Dr. Gideon Fell in a baffling murder mystery set in the Swiss Alps
Young Audrey Page has been warned against joining the aging film star Eve Eden and her temperamental friends at a Swiss chalet. Trustingly, she goes anyway and finds herself encircled by terror when a murderer strikes. With its eerie similarities to a crime that dates back to World War II, the murder attracts the attention of Dr. Gideon Fell, a brilliant sleuth with an eye for solving impossible murder cases. He will find that in this corner of the Alps, the air is thin, the scenery is beautiful, and the snow runs red with blood.
In Spite of Thunder is the 20th book in the Dr. Gideon Fell Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
