liked it
bookshelves: mystery, 2011

Although a bit trite and formulaic I liked the character of Roderick Alleyn more so than some of his contemporary detectives like whimsy or campion. Plus, I just liked his wit. More subtle than some and it develops over the course of Ngaio marsh's series(I am a few more along). But then I like English country house murder books like some people like Nora Roberts. Comforting!
