This is a book about the mystery genre as much as it is a specimen of the genre itself. Sayers has a great deal of fun satirizing the conventions of the fictional sleuth, while putting her own sleuths through their paces, but the convoluted plot is not one of the author's stronger efforts, and requires a considerable amount of suspension of disbelief.
This novel forms an important bridge between "Strong Poison" and "Gaudy Night" but isn't really in the same league with either.
