"A detective novel by Mr. Wills Crofts is always an event to those who know...Mr. Crofts is among the few muscular writers of detective fiction. He has never let me down." (Harold Nicolson, Daily Express)

weakest one so far

not much of a mystery and plot rather contrived compared to previous author works....imo because French brought into plot at a late stage

Slightly complex story but great narration

I felt the story was slightly too convoluted and cliched. However, the character of Inspector French is enjoyable, although slow to appear this episode. Phil Fox does a great job of narration once again
