it was amazing
bookshelves: crime, classic
Read in May, 2012

However unacceptable the 1920s class system, it is fascinating and comforting to read about the certainties of this age with social, dress and manners codes rigorously applied. Blackmailers are beyond the pale, murderers are hanged and criminals get their comeuppance! Lord PW wears purple silk pjs and a primrose silk dressing gown (or vice versa)...... Great stuff!
