Cool. I've barely read Barnard, but have been meaning to do more.

You might note that the formatting has betrayed you a bit in the post as it is at this moment...joys of bloggery!


I am glad you highlighted a book by Barnard. I have read this one but it has been long enough ago that I could read it again.

Thanks for the formatting note, Todd - it looked fine in Mozilla/Firefox, but the problem came with Chrome. I hope I've fixed it now!

Tracy, this book has a lot of charm due to the humor and ever-so-slight sendup of the traditional mystery novel formula. Inspector Meredith very happily mentions Agatha Christie and Hercule Poirot in the course of his investigations, too. Fun!
