Do you enjoy screw-ball type movies? Thrill to the zany antics of cross-talking situations? The confusion of farce excite your little gray cells? Then this and all of the books from this series will satisfy your desires. Alice Tilton is a gem of a writer along the likes of Craig Rice or Tanya Huffs' Summoning Series. You will be taken for a ride at break neck speed while learing the adorable slang from WWII. Truly well written and a good reason to explore these and the other series she wrote under her real name Pheobe Atwood Taylor.

This is one of the darker outings for Taylor, but none the less humorous and charming.
The Nook version has relatively few typos, which seems to be an issue with most of the other Nook editions of older material.
If you have never read Phoebe Atwood Taylor, she has a gift for natural, witty dialog,
well crafted plots that rarely go beyond the plausible. Her sense of place and sense of
atmosphere greatly enhance the stories. There are at times in a few of her books, some passages of dialog that are surprisingly offensive, and one must remember the time period in which they were created, this is not to excuse the offense, but if one can look beyond that, they are quite entertaining.
