  1. Innes’ writing is definitely something to get used to, isn’t it, Margaret? If I’m being honest, I think I prefer my stories a little less fantastical. But I do like Inspector Appleby, and I’m glad you enjoyed this outing with him. Thanks as ever for the fine review.

  2. I want very much to like Michael Innes books, but I get stuck in his long sentences. His writing is dense, something I need quiet and time to navigate. I’ve never read this one, but I think I’ll give it a try.

  3. I think this one was just a bit too crazy for me. I don’t mind his convoluted sentences though and I always have a dictionary nearby – just in case.
