|About the Book|
Enjoyed reading what I consider to be a very typical English murder mystery from the 1930s. The plot is well done and the characters are well- characters at times. A retired policeman who took on the job as a pub manager is killed and Scotland Yard is called in to solve the crime. Insp. Young realizing the difficulty of getting information out of a small-town and close-mouthed group will make solving the case practically impossible. So he requests help from friend Desmond Merrion.Nicely written and you can really see the surroundings and events. Also enjoyed the constant turns of curious events that felt like they might never add up, and then do all come together at the end. Its a little cozy since the police presence is not over-powering. Just regular enjoyable reading.
