A dark and dour Dandy,
This review is from: Dandy Gilver and an Unsuitable Day for a Murder (Hardcover)
This complex book has none of the froth and fun of the previous Dandy Gilver novels. It is a much heavier read with a dour gloom hanging over the characters that wouldn't be out of place in imagined Gilverton. I also felt that it could do with a good edit, thinning out some of the very dense prose.
The story itself is very good, but it isn't quite what I was expecting. I hope Dandy's next outing will be a somewhat less grim and that Alec will have a larger role. Hugh's tiny contribution to this novel was, however, one of the high points.
