More than a great classic detective novel

This is a very classic (and british) plot : somebody among a group of six persons killed two or maybe three women by severing their heads with different devices. Two lovely girls, an old lady, and older man, the husband of one of the girls and another one in love with the second girl. Who did it? There appears an english policeman who has known all six for long and who tries to find the culprit, with some unorthodox methods. Maybe he would prefer not to discover him, but he's obliged to by the quick events. You can try your little grey cells, like Hercule Poirot, but it wan't work. Just let yourself by taken by the plot,the author and both lovely girls, and enjoy it till the end. A bit bloody ? Well, not too much, as a matter of fact. And buy other books from C. Brand, with the same policeman and some of the characters of this book, "death of a Jezabel", "green for danger", "death in high heels"... It comes from the 50's, but it's very enjoyable.
