    1. THE DETLING SECRET 1982 Julian Symons .This is another clever and intelligent mystery from one of the icons in the mystery writing field The tale of the actual secret of the Detling family winds its way through a portrait of the time in England when the Irish Question was top most in everyone s mind Gladstone wanted to have an Irish reform bill passed, but a recalcitrant parliament managed to block his wishes The era of Irish supporters who would go to any lengths to acquire the freedom they wan [...]

    2. Murder doesn t happen until 3 4 the way through the book, and never very satisfactorily resolved Surprising to see the accolades as an exemplary detective author Characters at least were consistent, and unique.

    3.

    4. The murder mystery in this book is quite interesting, even if the book is boring from time to time in the beginning However, the book loses one star, because I really don t like the ending I also think that all the necessary clues weren t given to the reader and there wasn t much of a change to guess the murderer.

    5. A new to me British mystery author I really like his wry style and characterization The plot had good twists and of course I loved the setting London mansions and country houses Very much about class during the Victorian era.

    6. Forgot that I read this one before The mystery was very slight Lots of build up to a not very interesting crime.
