But there is evil afoot and whispers of fifth columnists operating in the area and sending signals to the enemy. Then there's the obnoxious Mr Questing who has some sort of hold over the owner of the spa. When Questing disappears almost anyone could have had means motive and opportunity.
This is an interesting crime novel with plenty of clues for the observant reader. With Roderick Alleyn loosely disguised this is a book which would puzzle any reader not familiar with the series. For those who have read other books by this author he is easy to spot.
I enjoyed the story and thought the plot was well constructed but I found I kept losing track of who was who. Maybe I was in the wrong mood for the book. It is an enjoyable read for Ngaio Marsh fans but it would not be the best book to start with if you are new to her books.
