I am a big fan of Carr. At his best no other detective story author can equal him for atmosphere and ingenuity, except perhaps Paul Halter. Carr is the master of Locked Room mysteries. This, however, is not one of his best. It is a historical detective story but with no Locked Room element. While he gives a good glimpse of the situations in the Victorian era the story does not quite come off. A lot of the dialogue could have been left out to make a better book. People are screaming too much at each other. Totally unnecessary. There are strange happenings at High Chimneys which must be investigated. As usual romantic interest plays a big role. And the heroine seems to be the chief suspect. What is interessting is that the detective is inspector Whicher, who played a major role in the investigations of the Constance Kent case and who features in the TV show "The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher". I read the book about High Chimneys years ago and bought the e-book after reading the book about Whicher. The identity of the murderer was however a surprise for me. For most of his books Carr deserves five stars, but reluctantly I can only give this one three stars.

The books are longer, more drawn out than is currently fashionable.

I end up skimming a great deal towards the end.

The mystery part of the story line really is no mystery. But I did enjoy how the author tied everything together in the last chapter. I also found the notes for the curious section of the book very interesting
