Book reviews - The Lord Have Mercy

The Lord Have Mercy


Author: Shelley Smith
1 (1 Votes)
When Doctor Robert Mansbridge first moved to a quaint English village, he was seen as an intruder, along with his horrid wife Editha… But after proving himself as a good doctor and a kind man, he eventually found himself both accepted and pitied for his depressing marriage. Every day, the villagers live their daily lives of routine and gossip, with nothing to disturb the peace. Until the day that Editha Mansbridge is found dead under mysterious circumstances. Is it a suicide, or murder? Whilst Robert shuts himself away in grief, the locals’ gossip turns nasty with whispers that he killed his wife. Could such a kind-hearted man be guilty of such a heinous act? Or does evil lurk elsewhere in the most innocent seeming places? The Lord Have Mercy is a thrilling mystery that tells a tale of heartbreak, betrayal and the dark side of human nature.

Praise for Shelley Smith

'Brilliant' – The Observer 'Stylish Thriller' - The Daily Herald ‘Beautifully Written' – The Spectator 'Miss Shelley Smith is among the most distinguished of those writers who have abandoned the detective story for the crime novel. . . The story maintains its tension to the end . . . What she has set out to do is done superlatively well.' - Times Literary Supplement Nancy Bodington was born in 1912. Under the pen name of Shelley Smith, she wrote 15 crime and detective novels between 1942 and 1978. Smith is best known for The Ballard of the Running Man and its 1963 film adaption starring Laurence Harvey and Lee Remick.
