Until very recently, this was my favourite book in Atherton's Aunt Dimity series. It is yet another proof that a good mystery need not be a "murder mystery." The treatment of the homeless and the mentally ill, as well as the conditions of national service during World War II come under scrutiny in this volume. Everything is handled gently and effectively. In addition to another stuffed toy, we are given a final lagniappe of yummy treat to savour with a cup of something warm and comforting on a cold winter's evening, as we fill our eyes and brains with the contents of the book itself. Books such as this one were made to be read aloud in warm familial sitting rooms. An old-fashioned term applies well to this work -- It's a real doozy!
