KIRKUS REVIEW

The author who holds to a solid line (Bones in the Barrow, Death in Retirement) works in a polite English world that encompasses the Strongitharms; begins with the double death of the bachelor twins, Hilary and Hugh, and continues through the problems that beset their blind stepmother and her lamentably uncertifiable daughter, Joyce. A surgeon and police detective, a loyal servant and belatedly helpful relative, the question of legacies and obstructive intramural events unwind to a finale. Tempting.
