Say It With Flowers

Two leading characters in Gladys Mitchell’s new detective novel are Phlox and Marigold Carmichael, a pair of dilettante Bohemians who wish to find Romano-British treasure trove. While digging in Hampshire they unearth a skeleton which they show as a Romano-British exhibit.  However, Dame Beatrice Lestrange Bradley is so doubtful of its origin that she has tests made and discovers the bones to be those of a person killed within the present decade.  And so Miss Mitchell’s famous woman detective takes on a new and exciting case.
