Publisher's Weekly Review

As recounted by narrator Virginia Freer, this sprightly first work in a new series by the respected British author brings a visit from her husband Felix, a rogue she loves but can't live with. Felix, characteristically, arrives at the start of strange doings, set off by the hit-and-run death of Virginia's elderly neighbor. The victim's frail wife is hospitalized after surgery and, when she returns home, Virginia arranges for the widow's household help. Next, the murders of two women throw the community into an uproar, and force Virginia to suspect Felix, despite her conviction that his idiosyncratic ethical sense would never permit him to commit serious crimes. As she might have guessed, Virginia's secretive spouse has been using his talent for deceit in an effort that pays off with the arrest of the killers. The tale is lively with intrigue and urbane wit.
