From the kittenish comedy of earlier books, this takes its crime seriously and plans a perfect one with conscienceiess precision. Lisa Hayworth, decorative and designing, marries crippled but very rich John Albany for his money, then with Stratton, his attendant, in lonely Derbyshire moor country, arranges his suicide. For two years they enjoy all the fleshpots together- than a drought threatens to expose the dead man's watery grave to the police, and while with sangfroid they try to find and move the body, they fail. Consistently and, continuously exciting.
