A Murder of Quality by John Le Carre

If you’re going to plan a murder, you may as well do it right, nay, make it a work of quality, if you please.  Like George Smiley, the British former secret service agent who discovers just such a murder of quality and solves it in the small town with an exclusive school. 

Le Carre is known for his spy novels, but this was apparently his early work, and a short one it is that takes you on a little trip of intrigue and leaves you guessing until the very end.  Reminiscent of the style of Poirot and Miss Marple.
