Death at the Dog is a chilling murder mystery that keeps up the suspense .

Death at the Dog is a chilling murder mystery that keeps up the suspense until the very last page. Praise for Joanna Cannan. Before Joanna Cannan tried her hand at detective fiction, her books dealt primarily with the aftermath of World War I and life in England during the Great Depression, although several of her novels did have elements of crime fiction in them. All show her keen interest in the social mores of the day and how people behave in difficult times.

After Death at The Dog, Cannan deserted detective fiction for nine years. Tom & Enid Schantz. When she finally did take up the genre again it was with a new character, Inspector Ronald Price, who was introduced to the reading public in 1950 in her most famous novel, the frequently reprinted and retitled Murder Included, first published in the United States as Poisonous Relations and twice later reprinted as The Taste of Murder. The locale in They Rang Up the Police and Death at The Dog is a thinly disguised version of rural Oxfordshire, where Joanna Cannan settled with her husband and four children in 1932.

Death at the Dog book. Cannan gives us a good, well-drawn cast of characters and Crescy is especially interesting as the prickly writer who manages to attract men without really wanting anything to do with them

Death at the Dog book. Cannan gives us a good, well-drawn cast of characters and Crescy is especially interesting as the prickly writer who manages to attract men without really wanting anything to do with them. I also was intrigued by the similarities to a Ngaio Marsh book published in the same year-though the solution is definitely distinct.

Young Inspector Northeast falls under the spell of an unconventional older woman novelist who is the chief suspect in a village murder. The Dog of the title is a pub, which is modeled after the pub in Oxfordshire frequented by the author during the Second World War. Set in the late fall of 1939 during the first anxious months of World War II, this is a fine example of the classic English detective novel. It marked the second and final appearance for Northeast. First published in 1941.

This was a closed pub mystery. A man was murdered while sitting in the pub, without any customers noticing a thing. The method used by the killer was a surprise to me, and quite original. The characters were quirky, and it was a challenge to guess who committed the murder.

Death at the Dog is a better than average Golden Age mystery--not in the same league as novels by Sayers and Allingham, but a solid runner-up. If, like me, you're more interested in characters and setting than in the mystery itself, you'll be well rewarded. Unfortunately, Cannon wrote only two novels featuring Inspector Northeast. The other is They Rang Up the Police.

I enjoyed the traditional English village setting of this 1940s mystery but found it difficult to follow all the characters and found many of them unlikeable. I would still try another by this author as I enjoy cozy English mysteries.

I had previously read another story by Joanna Cannan, THEY RANG UP THE POLICE, and gave it 5++ enthusiastic stars. My expectation was that this book would give me the same delightful reading experience. Sadly, this was not to be.

Even though both stories featured the same detective, Inspector Guy Northeast, the resulting stories are very, very different. Someone had killed the local Squire while he sat in his customary corner seat in the local pub, The Dog. The lounge and public bar were filled with people and yet no one knew 1.) that he had been murdered and 2.) how anyone could have done it. The murder takes place very early on in the book and there are numerous people in the pub at the time of the crime. I had a hard time keeping all the characters identified in my mind. I got very confused as to who each one was, why they were there, and what they were doing. Inspector Northeast was no longer an untried policeman. He had solved at least one murder case before (see th first paragraph) and was dispatched from London to help the local officials get this one solved. It was a bit of a stretch for the author to have made the crime take place in the same county as before (Loamshire) and the local policemen remain just the same, and to have them welcome Northeast with open arms when they were so thoroughly against him in the other novel. But, that is the way it was set up so that is what we had to go with.

I didn't actually like this story. I wanted it to be over. I didn't like any of the characters and especially not the lead female. Why would three men have been so completely smitten with that person? It made no sense to me at all. She was totally unlovely in my opinion and very much a departure from the typical heroine I have come to expect from English mystery stories written in the 1940's. Maybe that would have been acceptable but I didn't like any of the male characters either. Each character in this book was presented in such a shallow manner that I never got to know them very well and what I knew, I didn't like.

The murder weapon I spotted very quickly. It was done-to-death in books written about this time. The method of looking into the pub is a total puzzle unless you have been to England and looked at those items and wondered what in the world they are. And it was never made completely clear to me as to how the fatal blow was struck. I don't want to give away the method so I can't be any more specific, but I've read the book and I'm not sure I could describe it to you even now.

This book left me with a brooding, dark feeling. I didn't like anything about it, really, and would not recommend it to any of my friends. I gave it 3 stars because I do like the older, period mysteries better and I'm grateful to Rue Morgue Press for reprinting so many of the old stories. My stars are essentially for the publisher, not the book.

Well written and a wonderful mystery, started a little slow as the characters were introduced, then took off with a shot. Great Who-Done-It.
Played well on Text-To-Speech.

Yuk is all i can say for this book could not do my usual 50 pages to decide to delete the book.

Enjoyable if you like English inspectors. I do!
