Quick Curtain

Quick Curtain - Alan Melville

The only reason I finished this is to claim my bingo square and bingo #4. 

 

While the satire of the theatre society, mystery genre and adoring public was interesting, I didn't find this to be an enjoyable read at all. Seriously, Tey picked up a similar approach in A Shilling for Candles and worked it so much better that, by comparison, this fell totally flat for me - from the slapstick take on Holmes and Watson to the mock resolution of the murder.
