KIRKUS REVIEW

A postman being hit and letters taken brings Miss Melrose and her paying guests under police scrutiny, which is rewarded when death, presumbly from a bad tin of salmon, occurs. The dead woman's niece, the question of inheritance, a tangle of relationships within Miss Melrose' walls, another killing, a disappearance and a suicide -- all add up to a neat and tidy solution for Scotland Yard -- and others. Good British.
