Swiss Vendetta by Tracee de Hahn. Published by St. Martins

Inspector Agnes Luthi is a police officer is Switzerland who has just transferred to a violent crimes unit and her first case is a doozy. In the midst of the worst blizzard in a century, Agnes is called to an ancient fortress where an appraiser from a local auction house has been found stabbed to death. The woman was there to catalog the building’s many treasures when she was killed. The servants at the old building close ranks and refuse to speak to the police. has it got anything to do with the aging World War II survivor in a neighboring chateau? Things go from bad to worse when the storm knocks out the power and Agnes is left alone in the dark with a killer. I really enjoyed this story, it had an Agatha Christie feel to it, reminiscent of Ten Little Indians
