Just okay classic murder

by HHH on Nov 8, 2012

This was recommended to me as a classic murder mystery from the "Golden Age" of detective fiction. It's true that it's a tightly constructed puzzle--but that's about all. Characterization is perfuctory and, finally, irrelevant to the victims, the crime. and the culprit. This novel is a far cry from the works of Sayers, Christie, Allingham, etc.
