A good mystery, but neither as good as the reviews quoted on my edition would suggest, nor as creepy as the description would like one to believe. For one thing, although I never try to guess the murder in books, it was fairly obvious even halfway through who it was. Also, the sense of creepiness came and went a lot (I find this a regular problem with Gladys Mitchell--I get the feeling that something in the ancient-and-sinister-horrors is due, but it never materializes). I guess it's the most consistent of Mitchell's books that I've read, but everyone seems to consider it head-and-shoulders above the rest, so I may not bother to search out any more, because if it doesn't get better than this, I think I'll go re-read something really good instead.
