    One thought on “Evidence of Things Seen”

    1. My second Elizabath Daly mystery, and quite good. Henry Gamadge, the detective, is annoyingly free of faults, but sidesteps being an arrogant know-it-all with his convincing love and concern for friends and family. His desperate quest to solve a murder his wife might be convicted of gives the story an emotional hub most mysteries lack.The mystery is an appealing "impossible" crime that the reader has a very fair opportunity to solve (also unlike most mysteries).

    2. Clara Gamadge is delighted when friends find her a country cottage where her busy husband Henry can retreat from War work. But when Gamadge returns from his latest overseas assignment, he is disturbed to find a telegram from Clara telling him not to be alarmed when he reads the papers. A murder has occurred in their cherished retreat, and Clara is likely to be the prime suspect--unless Gamadge can quickly discover the true author of the crime. To complicate matters, it has been made to appear th [...]

    3. Henry Gamadge is an enigmatic character, not unlike Hercule Poirot. He has an uncanny intelligence, and has assisted the police in his capacity as a printing and handwriting expert, but he frequently works on cases brought to him by friends and acquaintances, and his reputation always seems to convince even police from venues outside of New York City that he can be trusted. His upbringing seems to have been the elite, moneyed kind that smacks of the British upper crust, with frequent references [...]

    4. What a clever mystery! I was led to suspect so many people. The twist at the end caught me completely by surprise.

    5. Evidence of Things Seen is the fifth in the Henry Gamadge mystery series by Elizabeth Daly. It is set in 1942 and Henry is off doing unspecified war work. (In various books it is mentioned that he worked in the US and in Europe for Counter-Intelligence. Whenever he is asked what he did, he says he flew around.) His wife Clara and their maid Maggie have gone to an isolated cottage in the Berkshires for a little vacation and to make the place welcome for Henry's return. Another couple is scheduled [...]

    6. Almost like time-travelI can't actually be there (1940's), but get to experience the accepted conventions of the time while taking a murder mystery ride. The intriguing mystery with a touch of the supernatural, as well as twists, is not to be missed. I enjoyed the cleverness and the dry humor of Elizabeth Daly. Her detective Gamadge and perfect 1940's little wife, Clara, slowly reel out this murder mystery amidst an old fashioned cottage that is quaintly without electricity, rumors of a vengeful [...]

    7. The story starts with Clara, Henry's wife, staying with Maggie (cook) at a country home for a vacation. During this time, an odd woman is seen about the place, and then disappears.A murder occurs, and then Henry arrives in the nick of time, to help clear his wife of being accused of the murder.

    8. Clara Gamadge is waiting for her husband and friends to arrive to share the summer cottage they have rented, but a mysterious woman in a sunbonnet seems to be haunting the place. When the owner of the cottage, who inherited her wealthy from a miserly sister, is hurt in an accident, Clara is suspected of her murder.

    9. Enjoyed this introduction to Gamage series. Didn't see ending coming and I like that. Definitely will stock more of the series. Odd to read something with the feel of Agatha Christie yet set in New England. It's always interesting to read a book written earlier, as a "contemporary" novel, from perspective of 21st century.

    10. Skip two books in a series and suddenly there's a wife!Elizabeth Daly does not recap the previous books in a quick blurb like many current authors do-so off to find the missing volumes. I may have to (gasp!) go retail. Gotta find out where the wife comes in!

    11. Daly's cozy, well-plotted mysteries from the 1940s are a relief from the sordidness of modern crime fiction. Series character Gamadge is one of the most likeable crime-solvers in Golden Age fiction, as smart as Poirot but nowhere near as arrogant.

    12. I was a little taken aback by the silly little some what foolish woman having to be protected and saved by the strong helpful smart man.
