really liked it
Read in October, 2011

This book had some fantastic lines, most of which were uttered by curmudgeonly Arthur Bryant. My favorites:
"Whenever the English build something enormous, the first thing they always do is have dinner inside it"(50).
"Don't be obsequious, Banbury, nobody likes a creep"(114).
"I dont think of Alma as a woman; she's my housekeeper and merely happens to be of the female gender, like a ship" (272).
It was a couldn't-put-it-downer for me because of the Highwayman mystery as well.
