For those not familiar with Asey Mayo, he is one of the great amateur detectives of American fiction. Phoebe Atwood Taylor has a gift for natural, witty dialog, believable plots and enduring characters. This story has many of the best elements of her writing,
although this story tends more to the character and humor than mysterious and suspenseful side. The sense of place and atmosphere always enhances her stories.
Some of the stories suffer somewhat from the attitudes of the times, although those are relatively few of her large body of work. If you are looking for a fast paced, entertaining mystery with great characters, this is the book for you.
One word about the Nook editions, they seem to have some issues with typos, which seem to be spell checking substitutions. Just something to keep in mind.
