Murder is the result when Perce Spender, a common, unassuming worker, unexpectedly finds himself the Earl of Ellesmere and owner of a grand estate

Simon and Schuster
A man’s home is his castle, but for Percy Spender that motto has been taken just a bit too literally. After the sudden death of first one distant relative and then another, the amiable Perce has become the 12th Earl of Ellesmere. And his home, no longer a cozy council flat, is now the drafty, imposing Chetton Hall, complete with more bedrooms than Perce can count and an army of servants. Frankly, all these fancy trappings make Perce itch. He’d just as soon sell up, buy a comfy cottage, and put a bundle on the ponies. However, some of his mates and family members have other ideas. And the sad fact is that an Unfortunate Accident can happen to anyone, even a lord of the realm.

I abandoned it early, put off by the stereotypical characters.

Hard to get into but not a bad little cosy after all.
