The traditional country house party murder is turned on its head, given a few twists, and ends up much reinvigorated in this witty and lively whodunit by a writer who, as described in the Times Literary Supplement, 'can write most under the table with one hand behind his back.'
'Mr Barnard always maintains an exceptionally high level, being as much littérateur as mystery story writer; fortunately, he never lets his literary flair get in the way of his mysteries.' New York Times Book Review

My very first Barnard. So much humor. A quick, light read but only because it kept me so engrossed I didn't want to put it down.
A light little mystery with a cast of quirky characters. Not enough character development to make it interesting.
