批評家のレビュー

“Miss Porter shows splendid fertility in comic invention. The comic-horrific ending must be the best crime fiction joke of the year.” (Julian Symons, Sunday Times)

あらすじ・解説

For its own very good reasons, Scotland Yard sends Dover off to remote Creedshire to investigate the disappearance of a young housemaid, Juliet Rugg. Though there's every cause to assume that she has been murdered - she gave her favours freely and may even have stooped to a bit of blackmail - no body is to be found. 

Weighing in at 16 stone, she couldn't be hard to overlook. But where is she? And why should Dover, of all people, be called upon to find her? Or, for that matter, even bother to solve the damned case?

Excellent Book

Loved this book on many levels - entertaining, well written and Sam Devereaux rises to the top of my list of the best narrators around. Inspector Dover is interesting, I can see him clearly with his eccentricities and fussy behavior. The pace of the book suits me beautifully - the murder happens early and the story moves along. Devereaux reads like a theater actor, playing all the parts. In this story the murdered woman wears green nail polish, so do I. Strongly recommend this book~

The mystery is ... how does he keep his job?

A detective anti-hero. Obnoxious, boorish, self-important, lazy, intimidating, anti-social and someone who repels everyone he meets. I hope poor McGregor manages to get his transfer ... soon!
