I enjoyed this book very much. The murder mystery is intriguing and the murder weapon was very original (a mediaeval war machine!), but the characters are so interesting they overshadow the mystery. Some of them are likable, others are revolting, hilarious, bizarre... Different sections of the plot are told from the point of view of different characters, and Caroline Graham seems to love giving us the point of view of the most selfish, shallow and stupid ones, which is at the same time infuriating and very enjoyable to read.

The only reason I'm giving this book four stars and not five is the horror/supernatural twist at the very end, which I thought was jarring and unnecessary.
