Today he seems an unusual person perhaps to the people of 2000, but it helps if you remember that the war he mentions is the first World
War, which started over 100 years ago in 1914.. Class system in England at that time was a great deal more intense than now.
This is a really nice story, full of upper class England, men's clubs, rich people who did not hold down jobs, servants firmly in their places, retired old men, and women acting as women were supposed to do, and of course, the root of all evil, money....lots of money. Lord Peter solves the problem in his usual Bon vivant manner.
MUCH I HAVE REREAD THEM SEVERAL TIMES. THEY ARE GREAT MYSTERIES AND LORD PETER IS A REAL HOOT.
