Turmoil over Thurlow House. The new tenant of the garden house has barely moved in when a grisly murder happens. Is Mister Brown, the new tenant guilty? Who is he, anyway? His past is shrouded in mystery and nobody seems to know anything about him other than that he is wealthy? Strange things continue to happen... „The New Tenant” is a devious mystery from the „the prince of storytellers” Phillips Oppenheim who wrote nearly 150 novels during his career. Very much in the genre of „The Woman in White” and other late Victorian mysteries, this book evolves slowly, with lengthy descriptions of setting, scenery, and society. If you like British style mysteries, this one’s for you!
