This is one of the best mystery books Georgette Heyer has written. The plot is intricate, the characters are well woven and interesting and the story has unexpected twists and turns from beginning to end. Heyer weaves a mystery that she will not allow the reader to unravel any more than she chooses to allow. The result is an exciting, gripping tale that will captivate you until you have finally discovered, 'who dunnit'& maybe more tantalising - WHY!
....Unfortunately I have to agree with a previous review, that there were dozens of typing errors throughout the book, which I found annoying and 'shoddy'. Heyer would be appalled to see her work so casually reproduced!
