The author writes this book in five sections - firstly we concentrate on AJ Strode and what he wants to do and why he invents this ingenious method of dealing with the three non-sellers. We then see the story from the point of view of each of the soon to be suspects - a violinist, a shipping magnate, and a playboy. We also get to find out the circumstances in which they may or may not have killed in the past. It is at about 75% through the story that the murder takes place and the rest of the book focusses on Marian Larch, the author's series detective, and how she investigates the murder.
The author has created a captivating story considering that most of the characters are morally dubious and not very likeable - any of the three might have committed the crime and the victim was hardly innocent. Although the investigation and solution to the mystery are interesting I actually feel that the strength of the book is in the first sections where the author outlines the previous crimes and introduces us to the suspects - it's all great fun (although completely unrealistic of course).
This is an old-fashioned "cosy" crime novel with plenty of humour and some entertaining action. A light-hearted and enjoyable read.
