Generous to more than one fault, this takes place in a chateau in Brittany imaginatively yclept Chatement where the heroine, in her red satin dress, attempts to see that her wheelchair-bound benefactor does not die earlier than she should. . . what with her soi-disant old friend (who is murdered with a rapier on the wall) and another casualty and a too faithful servant and more. . . . If she must, but discourage her.
