Since the setting is a Cornish seacoast village, it may be preordained that red herrings will pile up in this 'Golden Age' mystery. Enough to keep the reader (and the local Inspector) off balance for most of the tale. Delightful evocation of rural England post World War One. I'll definitely read some of the author's subsequent country mysteries,
A good first start to this author's mystery books set in England. The setting is very good, several good locals' characterization, and good clues and misdirections. Author, based on later books, likes the main detective to go for the home run as the clues build up, rather than a final round of applause so always know what he is thinking, rightly or wrongly. I liked the book well enough to read some of his later books that have been republished.
