One of the best of its genre
30 June 2000 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Originally produced for British television and shown on PBS's Masterpiece Theatre, this mystery is one of the finest of the 'dilettante-ish yet ever so successful' Peter Wimsey series. The plot is pure Golden Age detective fiction with its solution depending upon demanding attention to arcane detail. Portrayals are up to the standards of Masterpiece Theatre and production values satisfy Beyond these facts, I have seen all the Ian Carmichael-Peter Wimsey mysteries many times and , though this mystery is not my favorite, I continue to think of this one as the best. The plot is faithful to the book and doesn't betray the solution as one other has done. The characters in a small Glaswegian town are delightful and Carmichael's Wimsey is not as insufferable as the character was originally written.
