I think DEAD MAN RIDING gives the classic English country house mystery an interesting twist while hewing faithfully to its conventions. Linscott has placed her story in an earlier era - the last year of Queen Victoria's reign. It begins at a student production of Love's Labour's Lost, a clue to what will happen when an idealistic group of Oxford students set off to spend their summer break studying Plato in rural Cumberland. Not the kind of motivation that usually draws characters in a murder mystery to an English country estate. The country estate is very different too.
