It's got about everything you could want from this kind of book-impoverished daughters of the gentry, Texan oil millionaires, blackmail, aristocrats, Ruritanian duchies, and so on-which make it an ideal read on a lazy, rainy weekend. I decided to continue the tradition of reading a book set in England while I was there. I went to the Waterstone's at Trafalgar Square and fell in love with this book cover and the title. The Affair of the Bloodstained Egg Cosy, what a perfect title!

I prefer the first story (Egg Cosy) (love it).
Not sorry I have the other two.
All-in-all, happy with purchase.

Sort of your quintessential whodunit. A good companion by a winter fire and an excellent companion at the beach.

The Affair of the Blood-Stained Egg Cosy is one of many mysteries whose plot centers around a house party. However, Affair is unusually creative, funny, and clever. Affair was written in 1975, and takes place in the 1930s, but its humor and wit is timeless. Walter Satterthwait's Escapade would seem to owe a debt to Affair, as there are several similar elements and plot points. However, Affair succeeds in all the areas in which Escapade failed. James Anderson's plot is complex but never feels ridiculously contrived, and does not base plot points around ignorant, mistaken assumptions about ballistics, as Satterthwait does. Anderson also does a much better job with his characterizations, and is better able to make key characters charming rather than unintentionally obnoxious.
You'll have fun guessing what surprises Anderson may be hinting at, and all your guesses will probably be wrong! But you won't feel cheated or disappointed, as Affair remains pleasing and loads of fun throughout.
