A SHILLING FOR CANDLES

#4 in A Murder Revisited brings to an American audience the problem of a film star's death and Inspector Grant's usual grace being lessened by the suspects. Troubles with the dead woman's husband (Lord Edward Champeis (pronounced Chains), a bachelor guest, a newspaperman -- and Grant's favorite girl, Marta Hallard, work into a washout -- and a wash up -- when a disinherited brother and an astrologer add to the confusion. Good, solid and satisfactory. Tey fans- please note.
