One thought on “Sent to His Account

  1. Faouzia

    It is 3.5 stars rounded to 4 stars.Miles do Cogan had quiet a change in his life, from a poor accountant in Dublin he found himself inheriting a big estate in a nice, quite village He was prepared to enjoy all that when only few weeks after his arrival, one of the rich inhabitant of the village, Tom Reid, was found dead in Miles s library The interesting thing was that it seems that everybody had a grief with Reid, everyone in the village wished him harm for some reason.The story was enjoyable, [...]

    It s one of those GR conundrums this book is OK, characters flat or irascible when they re not plumb crazy, or plumb nasty, plot s a bit wiggly But Sent has it moments, some laugh out loud, and despite itself, I liked it.

  3. OraLee Kirkham

    Very enjoyable read For those of us who like good clean mysteries, this book is a fun read The author developed the characters well the reader could easily picture the inhabitants of the small village of Dangan, Ireland and the interweaving of their lives, loves and secrets.

  4. Mystica

    First off I loved the cover.Miles was going to have the fairy tale life Having lived in genteel poverty, counting every cent before he spent it, an unexpected windfall gives him plenty A beautiful home, agricultural property and a community that he falls in love with He is also determined to do good by all, not just enjoy his new found wealth by himself.The mystery thriller part starts with a dead body, unfortunately found in Miles s own sitting room That the dead person was controversial, in a [...]

    I really, really enjoyed this Set in mid 20th century Ireland, when money was worth a lot and police did not have forensic scientists on hand, this is a lovely old fashioned whodunnit and was just perfect for the mood I was in Miles is a somewhat unusual hero, but, along with Inspector Henley Pat , he is a believable, well drawn character The prose style is unremarkable but very readableHaving read both this and Death in the Quadrangle for free, I will be very happy to buy any of Eilis Dillon [...]

    I m not sure this book knew what it wanted to be.The first quarter or so was about a likeable man, who inherits a house, some money and possibly a village and that s all good.Then we have a murder and our main character all but disappears as it becomes an old fashioned who dunnit, with some odd characters and in plausible plots.I m not sure I cared who did itch a shame, the writing was a breeze to read, and without the murder could have had some charm.

  7. Susan Barton

    This is a good, old fashioned whodunit It s a quick read, but is full of surprises, twists and turns The characters are well developed and likable.I would recommend Sent to His Account to anyone who enjoys an old timey murder mystery that s written in the style of Agatha Christie and others like her

  8. Monica

    This the third of three mysteries Ellis Dillon wrote before she moved on to other genres Like the others, it is set in an Irish village A pleasant read but less appealing characters and plot than in her earlier mysteries.

  9. Susan

    Miles de Cogan moves onto his inherited estate in the village of Dangan in Ireland , only not before long the most disliked man in the village is killed.An okay read and mystery with not any really likable characters.A NetGalley Book
