Review by riverwillow
Another country house murder solved by the diffident Inspector Wilkins. I did guess who dunnit early on in the book, but had no idea of the ingenious motive. Superb.
Review by Summermoonstone
Sounds just like my sort of book (a who-done-it) set in the 30's with all the glamour of that age but I'm afraid it failed to grip or excite. All the promise is there but it did not fulfill.
