murders on staff of eccentric political paper in England
  ritaer | Jul 7, 2021 |
Tedious. What kind of murder mystery doesn't kill anyone until more than a third of the way in? To make matters worse, the first third is filled solely with smug political posturing. Apparently Ms. Edwards is a renowned satirist - I'm glad for those who have the patience to wade through this boring drivel, but then, I'm American... ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To Paul, friend and pedant, and, of course, as usual, to John.
First words
"Bertie Ormerod says you're a tactful sort of fellow."
Quotations
Ricketts continued his task of laboriously counting the contents of a carton of pencils.... "I keep a very tight eye indeed on my ladies' and gentlemen's requisites. There's paper and there's pencils and then there's steel pens -- though that's not a difficulty since I'm the only one who uses them now. We had a bit of a to-do a long time back about biros. The last editor didn't hold with them. Said it was an affront to decency to have them in the building. Fountain pens or steel pens only, he decreed. Or pencils, of course. But then, sir, you know how it is. It's called progress, I suppose. We had to give in in the end, just like with those machines the typewriting ladies use."
