A bit disappointing ending. The book starts interestingly enough with <*SPOILERS AHEAD*> murder taking place in a queue. There are a number of promising red herrings. However the end is a bit of a damp squib. I've noticed this problem with some of Tey's mysteries. Most of them start off with a novel situation, but some of them end lamely. Almost as if having written half the novel, the writer doesn't quite know how to end it, or is too impatient to end it on a high note. Maybe that is Tey's intent at times. After all life doesn't always end on a high note all the time.

This is Tey's first novel in the Inspector Alan Grant Series. It is beautifully written with well developed characters. The novel is witty and clever as are other Tey novels.
