Murder in Piccadilly: A British Library Crime Classic (British Library Crime Classics) - Charles Kingston

The titular murder has still not occurred.

 

This is shaping up to not be a whodunnit, or even, really, a whydunnit, since it appears that the murder is to be motivated by greed, and an heir who doesn't want to wait around for his rich relative to shuffle off the mortal coil by natural causes.

 

Which begs the question that so often arises in these golden age mysteries. Was the murder of rich old relatives in England as common as one would think from reading these books?
