The Henry Gamadge series begins with Unexpected Night. Gamadge is a gentleman sleuth, but right now he is on vacation in coastal Maine. His relaxation doesn’t last long though as there is a strange case that the police need his help with. The case involves a fall from a cliff, a large inheritance, and a group of actors that are dying off. There is something off and not right here, and Gamadge is just the man to help the local police solve the case.

Another good book in the Henry Gamadge series is Death and Letters. This book finds Henry Gamadge summoned to a secluded estate via a crossword puzzle. He’s called that way because it is the only way that a widow can communicate as she is being held captive by her relatives. They are all claiming that the woman has lost her mind, but she believes it is because they are worried about her after her husband’s suspicious suicide. The family is set on avoiding scandal and it’ll be up to Gamadge to sort them out.
