British from the Golden Era 16 May 2007
By J. Edmunds - Published on
Format: Paperback
Knox wrote "serious" works but I don't want to read those. I really love his mysteries. I've only read two of them, and fear that there may be no others. They are SO well written, and his characters use classic upper class slang from the period between the wars. The first twenty pages made me laugh so hard I had to explain what was so funny to the waitress in the restaurant where I was waiting for take-out food.

A classical detective novel by a clever writer 22 Aug 2010
By Jorge Norber Ferro - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ronald Knox was a converted Roman Catholic; his father was Bishop of Manchester, in the Church of England. He studied in Eton and Oxford and was a scholar, and wote many theological works and translated all the Bible to modern English. But he loved detective novels,and was membre of the Detection Club, with Chesterton, Dickson Carr, Agatha Christie and others. If you like classical detective stories you will really enjoy all the adventures of Miles Bredon and his wife Angela. Not only the plot, carefully displayed. but the descriptions, the dialogues, and the characters.

Clever, witty work 24 Mar 2008

If you like Freeman Wills Crofts "timetable" mysteries, then this is right up your alley. A good read with some outstanding characters.
Beautifully composed, but a contrived plot. 21 Dec 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unbelievably intricate mystery to unravel. Much more like a puzzle than a story. Not my style.
