I love humor in crime fiction, especially when linked to vivid setting, clever plot, and characters alive enough to stand behind your shoulder, impatiently urging you to read faster. Breakup is a classic, filled with snort-worthy humor and memorable scenes.
This book is proof that the unexpected can be enticing: odd title, child protagonist, quirky setup, a diminutive volume that doesn't even have a dust cover, the whole is as delicious as its title.
Blithe and brisk and casual, you think Josephine Tey is simply telling you this interesting history about these very English friends of hers...until you suddenly realize how diabolical she is, and how deeply enmeshed you are in her subtle and really rather frightening web.
A bucolic setting, delightfully complex relationships, and deft sleight-of-hand tumble the reader from one scene to the next. Like a Shakespearean rom-com...but for the grim opening chapter that turns every giggle edgy and shadows every picture-perfect moment with dread.
