KIRKUS REVIEW

There is more plot to the square page here than a graveyard has grass. When a mystery provides a lost, fabulous diamond with an English seacoast resident hotel for the elderly and a fanatic religious sect as backdrops, the bodies will fall as the gentle rain from heaven. Scotland Yard, in the form of Septimus , will arrive and stay two corpses behind the murderer. This is the kind of old-timer that some people just can't get to sleep without. However, the aintily vicious conversation that goes with this form is here for some fun.
