Adair succeeds in evoking the classic golden age mystery with his snowbound-country-house-party-embroiled-in murder tale. It includes eccentric English country characters, an impossible murder in a locked room, and amateur sleuths. It also had maybe a few too many long monologues from each character, but if you let yourself be taken along for the ride it's great fun.

Written in the classic English manor house, snowed in at Christmas mystery, this book has all the elements of a Christie like who dun it....odious Raymond Gentry has been murdered...but how? His body is discovered in the proverbial locked room...a good read.....I am looking forward to the next in the trilogy....
