Reviews by Allan Clark

At the Villa Rose

by A.E.W. Mason

The puzzle in itself is not too bad, but the lengthy dénouement—after the criminals are captured—is extremely slow going, essentially a retelling of the entire story when one is anxious for a quick wrapup. The author rushes into his plot, but then takes forever to explain it.

Hanaud is not particularly impressive or likeable as the detective. All the characters are cardboard cutouts and not believable as real people.
