it was ok

I believe Georgette Heyer was hoping to make the cousin Randall an attractive bad boy à la Johnny Depp; instead, he comes off as simply repugnant, like Philip Seymour Hoffman in the indie film Happiness. Some of the other characters are simply caricatures. In addition, Heyer is tight-fisted with the clues, although the set-up is a clever one.

Detective Inspector Hannasyde is an amiable and clever fellow, but readers would do better to instead read The Unfinished Clue, which is a better mystery with more likable characters.
