This is an interesting story in the classic mould of British detective fictions. It is well plotted and the characters are believable as is the dialogue. Modern readers may find themselves reaching for a dictionary as the author does use words which are perhaps not in common use today but this did not spoil my enjoyment of the story.
If you want a well plotted mystery which will keep you guessing until almost the end of the story then give Edmund Crispin a try. His books featuring Gervase Fen - Oxford Professor - can be read in any order.
Fen finds himself in the world of cinema, working at a studio - which sounds very like Elstree - on an unlikely film based on the life of Alexander Pope. Almost immediately, he bumps into a character from previous volumes - Inspector Humbleby - and the game is suddenly `afoot'. Fen's sports car, Lily Christine III, also reappears in predictably unreliable form.
Like the previous book, Buried for Pleasure, the action has been moved out of Oxford, and the story is none the worse for this. There are murders to solve, quirky characters to meet, and a good deal of suspense to be had, particularly when the action moves to the countryside. Watch out for the maze...
Wonderful writing with a lot of humour and great characters. Fen is a great favourite of mine with his entertainingly grumpy approach. It is also a period piece. It reminds us oldies of what life was like just after the war and might inspire/amuse the younger of us.
