    A Real Let-Down

    Well-written, but felt like rug was pulled out from under right from start after Bunchy, who was so wonderful, gets killed and Lord Gospell has to solve his murder. (This is on back cover, so I'm not giving anything away.) Trouble is you like the poor Bunchy so much you get soured when he's bumped off. Also didn't care for sappy love interest. Thought the woman Lord Gospell pines for is unsympathetic. Can't understand what he sees in her. Can't see what all the fuss is about with this writer. Thought tag on cover comparing Ngaio Marsh to Agatha Christie doesn't ring true. Not a thrillilng read, only mildly entertaining at best, but that's a bit of a stretch.
