A smoking room in a house in Daylesford Gardens in the smarter part of London yields a gruesome discovery. A very determined Inspector Mallett of Scotland Yard is brought in to discover the source of this outrage, and he must unravel a complex of suspicion before the murder is resolved.

The way in which an air of probability is combined with clear, terse narrative and with a good deal of subtle suburban atmosphere, proves the extreme skill of the writer.

The first in the Inspector Mallett series. Very intelligent and witty. A nice quick read. Set in England, it's about Inspector Mallet who is charged with finding the murderer of a man who, it seems, cheated several people out of money. I am definitely going to read the next in the series called Death Is No Sportsman.
