Members of a folk-dancing troupe are dying, their corpses found with poisonous mushrooms stuffed in the wounds. Mrs. Bradley is brought in to help solve the crime when it appears her niece is in danger of being a suspect and a victim. This is an entertaining and fast-moving mystery. At its center is an interesting group of young, bohemian-types who comprise the dance troupe. An absurd amount of emphasis is placed on the fact that one of the men is somewhat effeminate, and can dress up to play women's parts in the dances. There's all sorts of effort to say in not so many words that he may be gay, which appears to be automatically conflated with slightly effeminate looks and a willingness to play female roles on stage. That aside, this is an able mystery. The solution does not come until the very last page, and there's minimal wrap-up. A bit to abrupt in the ending, but a good journey nonetheless.
I didn't dislike the book. It just didn't grab me the way I wanted it to.
The idea was good, I thought. Somehow, I just felt with a little more something, it could have been good.
I thought the author gave too much away. Left nothing to be discovered.
It is still an ok read.
It was somewhat slow, and tedious. Would a British police offer show so much deference to a 'Lady' of royalty? Still trying to figure out where the 'death-caps' fit into the mystery.
This was dreadful. The characters were totally unbelievable, and the story was of a junior-high school level. I was sorry I wasted my time -and my money- even though it was cheap.
Very reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Interesting characters, scenery, and even some red herrings! Enjoyed this slice of time and figuring out who should be arrested.
This book did not hold my interest well, was not well plotted and ended abruptly. I don't think I've ever gone with just one star before, but the book failed to earn more from me.
Many pages-more than 20-were only partly printed.
That is the printing on these pages was missing in
big patches. Sometimes it was possible to guess
the missing content - often it was not.
Most disappointing.
