KIRKUS REVIEW

. . . is certainly a very good one retaining the classic components of the traditional British mystery from beginning to end--ends really (and one could cavil with the number of reverse Englishes here). Most of it takes place in one of those 16th-century Tudor houses with a curse and an inheritance (the Royal Crown of England, no less), the seat of more recent history and tragedy when it was used as a POW camp, and the site of an underground crypt which reveals a body as well as expected ashes. You will have to pay attention but then you'll want to since it's written with respect for the form and the language.
