Good Beginning; Disappointin Denouement
10 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Fascinating beginning: rich father-in-law refuses to help his darling daughter's husband save his business. He is willing to give them only enough to keep their home. The gift reminds the daughter of a family heirloom which would solve all their financial problems.

Middle: an ingenious plot to get the needed money. The couple and her childhood friend conspire to "force" her father to provide the money. He thinks he is saving his daughter's life.

Ending: pitiful! A sudden reversal of motives that is not adequately provided during the earlier narrative. You be the judge of whether the "solution" seems rather out of character for the killer.

Comedic element: the title is related to the Inspector's buying a bloodhound named Cyrano (for the big nose, of course). The dog-seller gouges him money-wise, both in the selling price and in the buyback, that is until the final scene.
