This is the first of the Inspector Wilkins Series. That this novel was first published in 1975 and is still selling well all these years later is a testament to it and the cosy mystery genre. As a cosy parody, it has everything – literally everything. It becomes quite serious towards the end, and the answer is provided for almost everything. This said, for this reader, there are a few too many storylines and characters for me to become properly engaged with each of them. I also felt the detective became lost in the various strands, which is a shame as he could have become quite endearing character otherwise. Don't let me put you off. There are plenty out there raving about this series, and it certainly is a jolly romp with plenty to keep you guessing. Not one to be taken seriously. Nina Jon is the author of the Jane Hetherington’s Adventures in Detection crime and mystery series.
