The Toff has become my favorite fictional character. John Creasey keeps you guessing with twists and turns in the plot set against the colorful background of London. The story is populated with wonderfully unique and/or eccentric characters. The British mystry genre at its best.

A grand old-style English mystery by John Creasey, one of the most prolific mystery writers of the 20th century. A tangled web of old family skeletons and deceit lead to a series of murders where the clues mislead even the astute Inspector West for a season. I enjoy the ambiance and civility of the older British mysteries and this one grandly displayed both while weaving a very good tale.
