"The clocks were wrapped up and paid for. Mr Murgatroyd watched the cars drive away with a puzzled air. Very spirited the young people of the upper classes nowadays, very spirited indeed, but not at all easy to understand. He turned with relief to attend to the vicar’s wife, who wanted a new kind of dripless teapot."
There is a lot to like about The Seven Dials Mystery. The spirited young people, the charming older generation, the country house setting - complete with a despotic gardener, London nightlife, and of course a murder which could not have possibly been committed.
A fun read with a twist.
