Given the colorful and seductive cover, I was expecting a feminine mystery of minimal depth. Happily, I found a book that was written in the 1920's and had the feel of an Agatha Christie novel -- mystery without a focus on detective minutiae or a love story. It was just a good old-fashioned family tragedy that took twists and turns as the local police investigated the murders to slowly and clumsily unearth the pieces to reveal the truth. Lacking in intrigue at times and with a culprit who seemed to be written into the role at the last minute (just to avoid the obvious suspects), the book was an acceptable break from more standard fare.
