Written in a very flat style, and completely devoid of tension, excitement, surprise, humour, or sympathy with the characters: even the author seems bored with his creations. The plot advances at a snail's pace, mostly by different characters hypothesizing different solutions even though the lead, Inspector Pinkey, (?) warns against it and says they must deal in facts. He is the worst offender. The novel has gone under several different names since it first appeared as "Who Else But She" in 1934, but the name changes can't disguise its criminal awfulness. In this digital age there is / are a plethora of newly discovered "golden age" crime novels which are quite frankly calling the quality of the period into question and would be best left to moulder undisturbed.
