really liked it
bookshelves: mystery-england, center-for-fiction
Read in February, 2017 , read count: 1

On the plus side, you have the ever-delightful Homer and Mary Kelly, Oxford University (where Homer is guest-lecturing), a charming Anglo-Indian police detective who is himself a graduate of Oxford, Langton's sketches showing various buildings, the unusual and fascinating science museum background. On the minus side are the various musings about evolution, and the almost complete lack of knowledge of science by two ignoble characters who are nonetheless presented as science students on an advanced level. So while it's an enjoyable read, it's a mixed bag as a novel, especially a mystery novel. Probably it depends on how much you like Langton's other novels.
