Overview

Ah, the London Debutante Season: Giggles and tea-dances, white dresses and inappropriate romances. And much too much champagne. And, apparently, a blackmailer, which is where Inspector Roderick Alleyn comes in. The social whirl is decidedly not Alleyn’s environment, so he brings in an assistant in the form of Lord “Bunchy” Gospell, everybody’s favorite uncle. Bunchy is more than loveable; he’s also got some serious sleuthing skills. But before he can unmask the blackmailer, a murder is announced. And everyone suddenly stops giggling.

If you like 1930's style English Murder stories, then read this book. It's fun

A great story with an unexpected ending... I've read it at least 3 times.

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.
