      It took them a little longer to solve the mystery than usual In fact, they didn t solve the mystery It was the footman who told them outright the identity of the murderer Also, there were several clues in this case that didn t really add up to anything and the side conflict of rivalry between men women as well as the constant bickering of the group members among themselves were getting wearisome Of course I scoffed at the way the men especially Hatchet and Inspector Witherspoon continual referri [...]

      This was the third in a volume of three of the earlier Jrs Jeffries books, and my favorite of the three In this one the men and women in service in the household started out trying to outdo each other in helping solve the crime But it all came out okay in the end Of course, they had than a few anxious moments before they solved the crime Highly recommended for lovers of historic England and cozy mysteries

      Another enjoyable romp through Victorian London with Mrs Jeffries her loyal band of servants We probably learn about the back stories of servants in this novel than in any previous stories Always charming

    13. Mary Skipper

      Good British cozy in which the housekeeper is usually shown as intelligent than her employer, the police superintendent.
