a near-perfect Marsh,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Surfeit of Lampreys (Paperback)
The Surfeit of Lampreys is a nearly "perfect" R. Alleyn mystery in that it is funny, engaging and has that flair of light humour and deep sentiment that is vintage Marsh. There is a dash of New Zealand, lots of aristocratic strutting and genuine fun in the slightly overdrawn portrait of poor gentility with no sense of responsibility. Still, those who live on glimpses of the detective's personal life will be dissappointed; no Troy in this book!
