Interesting in a classic whodunnit type of plot. Set in the 30's in England, Heyer places her characters in a very rigid kinda plot. Frank Amberley, barrister and part time amateur detective, comes across as stiff and cold. Maybe it's because I've been totally spoiled by Sayers' graceful writing that just flows that I couldn't really connect with Heyer's style. I found it cold, abrupt and very stiff. I did not believe the "love-hate" romance between the two lead characters and kinda wished that the villain of the tale wasn't the obvious choice but unfortunately it was. This won't stop me from reading the others mystery titles I have of her : Footsteps in the Dark, The Unfinished Clue.
