The Detective Fiction of Gladys Mitchell

Gladys Mitchell (1901--83) was the most imaginative and most original of detective story writers, her detective the memorable Mrs. Bradley, psycho-analyst and witch. Among her many merits may be listed her writing style and characterisation, making her by far the most zestful and most enjoyable detective novelist; her interest in archaeology, witchcraft, folklore, and the macabre, adding a unique flavour to her books; her gift for dialogue and dialect; her control of landscape and setting; and the controlled complexity and ingenuity of her plots.
