There is nothing about this mystery novel that is typical. Eva Wylie is a female wrestler called "The London Lassasin" in the ring and "Bucket Nut" by passing fans. In the ring, she's a villain, the louder the boos, the nastier the curses, the more satisfied she is. Eva Wylie is a big, ugly woman, proud of her muscles and unsympathetic to most of humankind.

Christmas holiday reading.... minimal comments.

The second of three books about Eva Wylie that I've read out of order. The first book, Bucket Nut, is definitely the best and I think this is the one that least belongs on a mystery shelf. I'm sorry that I don't have any more of Eva's adventures to read about now though.
