The Dead Alive by Wilkie Collins

The Dead Alive  2.5 Stars

A pleasant little who dunnit murder mystery, based on true events. A British solicitor is advised to go away for health reasons and rest up. He takes himself to a distant relative's farm in Vermont where two brothers are accused of murdering the farm manager. The one person who may hold a clue is the brother Ambrose's fiance; a pretty young woman named Naomi Colebrook.

What follows is a trial of circumstantial evidence, but no body.

Its an ok read but I was hoping for more suspense. This is more like playing the boardgame "Clue". But not bad for a novella. And its free on kindle
