decent mystery for some light reading. Misses on the eerie factor which is so often a plus with Carr's mysteries. Rather easy solving,except for some tricky side bits. ( )

Donald Holden comes back to London a year after World War 2 ended, having been officially declared "dead" while actually being in mI% in pursuit of a high-ranking Nazi in Italy. The sister of the woman he loved before he left is murdered. ( )

I'm surprised that I had never heard of this author before. This particular novel was definitely as good, if not better, than any Agatha Christie I've ever read. Solid plotting, good characters and I really didn't know "whodunit" until the very end even though all the clues were there. Very good read. ( )

The road, so long that it looked narrow, had on its left the thick greenery of Regent's Park and on its right the tall iron railings around St. Katherine's Precinct of St. Katherine's Church.

Was the madwoman dead or alive. The two beautiful Devereaux girls came from an old and distinguished family -- wiht an old and unfortunate streak of madness in it. Now Cecilia was still alive and Margot was dead..murdered. And it was up to Dr. Gideon Fell to discover as quickly as possible which of them was (or had been) a sexually twisted, dangerously cunning madwoman.
