A good mystery set in a well define setting and time. The story is not well told and has some glaring faults that make it not quite believable. Dorothy L. Sayers would have made a much better job of it.

A very interesting story but I found the narrative a little uneven. The dialogue was stilted in spots and the substory of the detective's love interest did not ring true for me. This did not stop me from reading the book to the very end to find out what happened. McCullough kept me wondering who did it until close to the end, so she did a good job. The twist at the end was interesting.

This is a surprising departure from the type of novel Colleen McCullough usually writes. It was a thoroughly engaging detective mystery. I liked that the novel was set in the 1960s - it's sort of boring to read mysteries with contemporary settings where most of the detective work is done on the internet. I loved all the distinct and fully fleshed-out characters. And I particularly love Carmine and Desdemona. I could read about these two characters all the time.
