This cosy Agatha Christie-alike crime romp is set after the first world war and takes in missing jewels, forged wills, and mysterious murders.
The plot at the heart of this book is a complex one with some nicely convoluted puzzles to be untangled.
My one small niggle is that the author doesn't bother to introduce her main characters and expects us to already know them from previous books - leaving us a little adrift if we come to this book first.
This doesn't have the atmosphere of authentic Golden Age crime writers (Josephine Tey, Dorothy Sayers, Christie herself) but is a fun, light read that keeps the pages turning effortlessly.
