A Mysterious Disappearance

( 14 )

Overview

Alice, Lady Dyke, puckered her handsome forehead into a thoughtful frown as she drew aside the window-curtains of her boudoir and tried to look out into the opaque blackness of a November fog in London.
Behind her was cheerfulness-in front uncertainty. Electric lights, a nice fire reflected from gleaming brass, the luxury of carpets and upholstery, formed an alluring contrast to the dull yellow glare of a solitary lamp in the outer obscurity.

Overview

Alice, Lady Dyke, puckered her handsome forehead into a thoughtful frown as she drew aside the window-curtains of her boudoir and tried to look out into the opaque blackness of a November fog in London.
Behind her was cheerfulness-in front uncertainty. Electric lights, a nice fire reflected from gleaming brass, the luxury of carpets and upholstery, formed an alluring contrast to the dull yellow glare of a solitary lamp in the outer obscurity.
But Lady Dyke was a strong-minded woman. There was no trace of doubt in the wrinkled brows and reflective eyes. She held back the curtains with her left hand, buttoning a glove at the wrist with the other. Fog or no fog, she would venture forth, and she was already dressed for the weather in tailor-made costume and winter toque.
She was annoyed, but not disconcerted by the fog. Too long had she allowed herself to take things easily. The future was as murky as the atmosphere; the past was dramatically typified by the pleasant surroundings on which she resolutely turned her back. Lady Dyke was quite determined as to her actions, and a dull November night was a most unlikely agent to restrain her from following the course she had mapped out.

    Dramatic and compelling mystery

    This fun Edwardian mystery is chock full of appealling characters, surprising twists, and a slow build-up of clues leading to a solution that may leave you feeling as shocked as the crime-solving barrister who serves as hero. Highly recommended reading.

    Constant suspense

    Very well written mystery. The competition between the professional and talented amateur detectives in this yarn adds to the excitement. The characters are well defined and behave as expected as the puzzle unfolds. The author does a
    good job of raising the excitement level when the answer to the puzzle is finally revealed. Once started, the book is hard to put down.

    Fun reading, lots of turns.

    Louis Tracy writes in a very visual way for her time. She lays out all the clue's all the way through the book.

    A great Mystery!!

    Gordon Holmes (or otherwise Louis Tracy)is or was a great writer. It is an art for someone to write a mystery that you can't put down. I highly recommended this book and will buy others by this autor. Keeps you guessing until the end.

    Great story

    Gripping mystery and good writing. More enjoyment in these 200 pages than in much longer books.

    Really enjoyable.

    A simple but complex solution to a simple but complex problem.
