Well, I don't know why I took my time reading this one - it was a cracking good mystery! A complicated plot and Lord Peter, Harriet and police definitely over-think and over-analyze this but finally come to their conclusion. The ending was a little anticlimactic. And I thought the police were extraordinarily patient. I kept thinking of Inspector Umpelty as Inspector "Uppity" for some reason! This is the first one I've read with Harriet Vane and I did like that she is an intelligent woman who rather balances out Lord Peter. Also liked the 1930s art-deco-ish flapper girl cover art of this copy.
