★★★★ ☐ The publisher has provided a copy for review.
Beautiful British English. That was my first reaction to the descriptive and specific language in the book. This murder mystery is full of literary allusions and fine turns of phrase. The wit, sarcasm, thrill of danger, and entanglements of romance (past and present) make this an entertaining read.
I'll keep my copy and read it again on the airplane. Time will pass and I may be biting my nails again.
