"The deeper Meredith delves into the case, the more complicated it
becomes. A cast of believable, colorful characters will keep the
reader engaged..."--Publishers Weekly
"Golden Age writer Bude's mystery (published in 1935, the same year as his debut novel, The Cornish Coast Murder, moves from this spectacularly disturbing opening into a satisfying intellectual puzzle, in which tiny discrepancies, like what time the tea table was set, become hugely illuminating."--Connie Fletcher "Booklist "
