This is a story of a young Englishman who, after nine years' experience abroad, rediscovers the beauty of English rural life and gets reunited with his old love. Compared with the same author's extraordinary mystery "The Lodger", I have to give this novel four stars, but still I enjoyed every moment of reading it and was impressed with the author's skillful story telling.
Im Cheungjun’s book reviews
Great story. Dark, eery atmosphere is superbly created with a touch of humor and grotesqueness. This might be a minor story among the works of Rinehart, but I find it very satisfying as a mystery novel.
