Excerpt

painted cottages, mostly bright with gay flowers.

At one of them he stopped. As he did so the occupant, a big and certainly able-bodied man, came out.

"Major Bennion," he boomed. "Pleasure to see you here. An unusual pleasure if I may say so."

"I came to see you," Roger said.

"I am honoured. Come inside."

Roger followed him into a pleasant room that served as sitting-room and study. Meals were generally eaten in the neat, little kitchen behind it. Upstairs were two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The first third part of total text extension is dedicated to dull political discussions typical of the last century's fifties, always in a very British flegmatic manner.
The criminal intrigue begins in the second third part of the novel.

The worst of it are the uninteresting characters.
The victims and the suspects don't awake a minimal empathy so the crimes' solution doesn't really matter.

****.

Satisfying well-written mystery from the 1960s UK. Four points because of typos and incomplete sentences in the transcription.
