Murder at Warrabah House

3 Stars  ***

Murder at Warrabah House is a one woman murder mystery from Australia, with a strong resonance of Agatha Christie.

Written by May Jasper and Sam Wilson, it follows Hattie Parish, the sister of Arthur Parish, the renowned consulting detective, as a summer house retreat becomes the setting for an intriguing murder mystery.

Felicity Hopkins maintains the complexities of a murder mystery, burdened on one person, with clear characterisations and an interesting psychological insight to her main character as the plot develops. Her storytelling is enjoyable and compelling.

Not wanting to spoil the plot I wont give anything away but fans of the genre will have their expectations toyed with as the classic structure get’s twisted on it’s head and if your not a fan of the classic genre this piece might help you confront it.
