I know that Heyer is the queen of eccentric, self-absorbed characters, and this book certainly proves it. It is also laugh out loud funny. I have to say that I guessed who the murderer was quite early in the book, but that didn't detract from the mystery for me. The dialogue is superb, as always. The detectives also play a center stage role all throughout the book, and they are not overshadowed by the rest of the quirky characters. If you love ridiculous situations and ridiculous characters, this is the mystery for you.
