Read from July 29 to September 10, 2011

Carr at his most Wodehousian, with the odd flash of the usual expertly-handled atmosphere (e.g. in the mocked-up suburban street before the acid attack) to maintain the thrills. Technical quality of the writing aside, however, the mystery itself is pretty flimsy; even Merrivale admits the culprit is unlikely to be convicted of attempted murder. Fairly average stuff, then, but Carr's average is still well above the best of many other mystery writers.
