Taken as a basic mystery, it's a decent light and fast read (very fast - I haven't seen type that large since 3rd grade). But if you're looking for the complex plotting, rich language, and wit of Dorothy L. Sayers, do not look here. It's also poorly edited - characters are in 2 places at once, one of Peter and Harriet's sons is simply missing, pilots "bale" out of airplanes, Walsh ignores the social structure of pre-War England - I could go on and on. Possibly the most interesting parts of the book deal with the living conditions in 1939 England.
