In his Cornish manor house, Adam Penhallow, though confined to a sickbed, rules his wife, his sister, four sons, a daughter-in-law, and numerous servants with quixotic cruelty. He seems to enjoy nothing so much as making others miserable. When he forces his youngest son to return from Cambridge, and summons a daughter and another son from London, the whole clan is made vividly aware that he will never relinquish power over their lives. With steadily building suspense, the question becomes not whether Adam Penhallow will be murdered but by whom and when.

very Georgette Heyer, but not humorous. Kind-of dark actually.

I don't think there was a single likeable character in the book - very unusual for Ms. Heyer! A different sort of mystery.
