Item description for Evidence of Things Seen (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Henry Gamadge Mysteries) by Elizabeth Daly...

In the sticky summer of 1943, and with her husband out of town on war work, a secluded cottage in the Berkshires sounds just the ticket to the newly married Clara Gamadge. The resident ghost, a slender woman in a sunbonnet, merely adds to the local color, even with the news that the bonneted woman died just one year ago, in the cottage that Clara is now renting. It's all nothing more than a deliciously spooky game, until the woman's sister is strangled while Clara dozes in a chair by her bed. The only clue: Clara's panicked memory of a woman in a sunbonnet standing at the door. Happily, Henry Gamadge - that supremely civilized gentleman-sleuth - arrives in time to calm his wife and solve the mystery (though not without some stellar help from Clara!).

Reviews - What do customers think about Evidence of Things Seen (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Henry Gamadge Mysteries)?

One of Daly's best  Nov 30, 2007
I'm delighted to see that Elizabeth Daly's novels are coming back into print. Henry Gamadge, her series detective, is a bibliophile and an expert on antique books and forgeries. In "Evidence of Things Seen," his wife, Clara, and their housekeeper find themselves frightened by the appearance of a woman near their summer cottage, her face shrouded by a sunbonnet, who only appears near sunset. It is hinted that this may be the ghost of a woman, possibly murdered by her sister. Soon, there is a murder, and it is up to Gamadge to discover the criminal - and bring the crime back into the realm of reality, rather than being the handiwork of a ghost. It's one of Daly's best, and it's a good introduction to Gamadge.
Pleasant diversion for Golden Age mystery fans  May 5, 2005
Plot: During the early days of WWII Clara Gamadge moves into a rented summer cottage in the Berkshires with her housekeeper Maggie. Her husband Henry plans to join her after his overseas mission is complete; another couple will also share their quiet refuge. Soon after arriving Clara and Maggie see a mysterious figure on a nearby path night after night. Is the figure that of the woman who recently died in the rented cottage? And is the dead woman's sister to become a victim at the hand of a ghost?

Review: A "cosy" mystery set in the countryside peopled with sophisticated city folk amidst the "natives," with a houseful of war refugees thrown in for good measure. A pretty good mystery, written in a pleasing style. This was my first Henry Gamage mystery, and I plan to seek out more based on this.
