I am having trouble remembering this book, so I cannot say if it was worth while or not. But I think it must have been, I usually remember the bad ones. Okay having remembered the book, i think it was okay, but not the best.
the last of the Hilary Tamar books, a good read
"Hailed by critics as a master of 'the most elegant and literate comedy of manners in the mystery field today.' Sarah Caudwell returns to London with her redoubtable team of young barristers --- Cantrip, Selena, Ragwort, and Julia -- in a mystery that crackles with her uniquely bewitching blend of wit and malice."
Murder in England, story revolves around barristers and stock trading. Good fun.
Sarah Caudwell writes extremely well and her stories are page turners - just wish I knew whether Hilary was a man or a woman!
I don't usually like legal mysteries but these British lawyers are different and fun. Unfortunately this author has died and there are only 4 books in this series, all excellent.
Clever and charming cozy mystery.
A more modern english countryside murder, I didn't finish it. I was hoping for something older, perhaps Edwardian, like older Agatha Christie, or at least like the Edward Gorey picture on the cover.
