A prostitute is found dead in a flat on Stanley Street and Wycliffe has to investigate. He soon finds layers upon layers of secrets and few people involved are what they seem to be. It is difficult to say very much more about the plot without giving half of it away. Suffice it to say that it is intricate enough to keep most readers guessing until close to the end.

I enjoy this author's writing style and I like Wycliffe as a character. He is happily married to Helen and has two nearly adult children. He has a reputation for eccentricity at work and for not wanting to discuss the case he's working on because it disrupts his thought processes. He likes to work on his own following up his own hunches but knows he has to work with other people as well.

The other characters in this story are well drawn though not always likeable - `Lily Painter' - the victim, Jarvis the antiquarian book seller and his unpleasant assistant and the architect Paul Morris. This is an interesting story about the seamier side of life which go on behind the facade of respectability.
