"A Tale of Secret and Unexplained Evil Happenings"

1911. 320 pages.
Online HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Mitford was "a colonial writer, novelist, essayist and cultural critic who wrote forty-four books, most of which are set in South Africa" [Wikipedia]:
"The Heath Hover Mystery," by Bertram Mitford, is frankly a tale of secret and unexplained evil happenings, touched with the glamour of Eastern romance. The important thing in the story is a star with deadly points, and its fateful influence on an otherwise normal English household is told of with a skilful prolonging of the mystery. — "Of Many Countries," THE BOOKMAN [U.K.] (August 1911)
