AN INSPECTOR FRENCH MYSTERY
Three men come up with a scheme to make money by cruising round the British Isles in an old transatlantic liner. All appears to be going well until one of them is found dead. Many of the passengers and crew would appear to have motive to kill the man, but all of them would seem to have an alibi. It takes the full extent of Inspector French's analytical skills to unpick the crime.
A good example of the pre-war detective story. The intricate plot takes some time to get going, but the characters are carefully laid before us, and the period detail is fascinating. There is an old-fashioned romantic interest, and fans of Inspector French will delight in another of his adventures, this time afloat. The writing is plain, and makes no pretensions to great literary flourishes. A good map of the British Isles will enhance your enjoyment while reading it.
