Publisher's Summary

On his return from South Africa, Charles Knox is invited to spend the weekend at the country home of Sir Neville Strickland, whose beautiful wife Rosamund was once Knox's fiancee. But in the dead of night Sir Neville is murdered. Who did it? As suspicion falls on each of the house guests in turn, Knox finds himself faced with deception and betrayal on all sides, and only the enigmatic Angela Marchmont seems to offer a solution to the mystery.

Smashing good read

Steeped in the tradition of Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, this is a smashing who done it. Delightful characters and a very engaging narration.

Dry, slow, and dumb

It took forever to introduce the characters, identify the murder, and set up various rabbit trails. The main character is both clueless and silly. The narrator is appropriately British but uninteresting.

Not bad, but not great

Perfectly fine book to listen to while doing chores. It is well written, I liked the narrator & the story was entertaining enough. I figured out who the murderer was very early on, and the story does plod on a bit unnecessarily. My main pet peeve was the repetition of explanations; almost like the author doesn’t trust the reader to remember what was said in the previous chapter.
