    I happened upon this by accident and really liked it Published in 1949 so it is totally of its time with equality, sexism and modern day issues unknown to the modern reader, it could be an alarming read but if you accept that it is a 1940s work it is an easy read listen Crimes happen, the baddie is a criminal who addresses people politely and all of the characters are stereotypes It is of another world and time and, though the story stretches one s credulity, it is interesting to read about t I happened upon this by accident and really liked it Published in 1949 so it is totally of its time with equality, sexism and modern day issues unknown to the modern reader, it could be an alarming read but if you accept that it is a 1940s work it is an easy read listen Crimes happen, the baddie is a criminal who addresses people politely and all of the characters are stereotypes It is of another world and time and, though the story stretches one s credulity, it is interesting to read about this other world I would definitely read another one in this series

    Here s the kind of diabolical sociopathic criminal that Roger is up againstOh no,protested Carosi calmlyThat is not true I get no pleasure out of hurting your friend Fingleton It just does not matter If I could get all I want without it, I would not trouble to cause any man or woman pain, but sometimes it is the only way But to get pleasure no I simply do not care

    A short, quick read that is packed with action and incident It starts with a wedding and finishes up on the London docks as Inspector West tracks a master criminal Creasey knew how to tell a story with economy and a crisp style, and while his thumbnail portraits of characters don t have a lot of depth they remain remarkably effective.

    I have not liked previous Inspector West books, but continue to hear how fine they are so I gave this one a try It is anything but fine.The villain seems continued from an earlier book or books, so reading that those first may have helped, but that would not overcome the limpness of the characters, the improbabilities in the story, or the fact that Creasey blows up yet another house This is a mannerism he really must overcome, though it is a bit late for that now.
