This review is from: The Attenbury Emeralds (Paperback)
I simply don't understand the - admitterly few - critical reviews of this book. If you have read and enjoyed the original Wimsey (and Vane) novels you'll certainly enjoy this. The pacing is the same, the characters are - nearly all - the same, the lack of blood and guts is the same, and the updating is well done. Apart from a couple of neologisms (nobody was "into" anything in that way in 1951) it slips down as smoothly as a pint of warm beer on a hot afternoon. But you won't find rotting corpses, bloody violence, gang warfare or the Mafia . . . . . . . thank goodness.
