I was a little surprised at the abrupt way the second mystery was inserted into the book, but Ms. Brody did a nice job of weaving the two stories together. Again, the mystery was perfectly nuanced. And I experienced a range of emotions throughout. Tenseness when Kate was cornered in the basement by Mr. Castle. Anxiousness when Lady Coulton's secret was revealed to Sophia and also over Inspector Wallis' competence. And during the scene where Mrs. Sugden shot at the fleeing man and then the banter between she and Kate after cutting her finger had me laughing out loud. And there were even a few tears at the end when Lady Coulton died. And while the monkey was a hoot for one book, I was relieved Percy was given a different home by book's end as such a schtick would wear thin in a hurry.
A wonderful book and I look forward to the next as I'm always happy to spend time with Kate, Mrs. Sugden and Jim Sykes.
