  • Engaging WhoDunnit

    This is a classic whodunnit, complete with the dramatic reveal with all of the suspects in the room. It is a fun mystery in keeping with the Golden Age. This is a new novel written in classic form. There are many suspects, all with great motives and opportunities. I was pleasantly surprised by the reveal. I have read several of the author's books and they have all been great mysteries of high quality. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very Clever Writing!

    Here is an author I always enjoy; their latest novel is an intricate and very satisfying read! At the opening of an exhibition showing off items from an archeological dig, a golden death mask is the main exhibit. However when it is discovered on the face of a dead body, word has it that it carries a curse . . . Books in this series are never a straightforward 'whodunnit'; with no shortage of suspects (and believe me, at some point or other I thought every character was guilty) this is one to keep the reader on their toes. Who the murderer was is only part of the equation - just as important is why? And into the midst of it all pops up Inspector Jasper and his faithful companion, Red. Even Jasper finds this one complicated and it takes some serious work to unravel the puzzle and get to the bottom of it all. Absolutely enjoyable, as always, and more than anything a very clever piece of writing. Definitely worth all five sparkling stars!

  • Another goodie

    Another goodie! Once again a story with many threads and a “Hercule Poiret” style ending. I have read a number of murder mystery authors and while one understands that there has to be some kind of formula, (ie a number of characters with possible motivation), there are times when the author weaves it all together to keep you interested but you are still left wondering. This is just such an occasion. I really enjoyed the delving into the psychological aspects, it added another aspect to the story. There are controlling characters and then those who are influenced! I appreciated the investigative character Jasper, (having met him in “Honeymoon with Death”) even more in this novel. With thanks to #NetGalley, Canelo and the author for my free advanced reader copy to review in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Misleading

    The most inept PI ever! No investigation, just a series of conversations with people gossiping about others. The writing is very stilted and awkward. Very disappointing.
