Hand In Glove - Retail, page 1. Tristram Abberley was an acclaimed English poet of the 1930s whose legendary reputation was sealed when he died fighting for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. Nearly fifty years later, his sister Beatrix is brutally murdered in her seaside cottage.

As its managing director, Maurice enjoys an income quite adequate to keep Sam and me in the manner to which we’re accustomed. Tristram’s royalties are strictly surplus to his requirements. Her mouth curled in mockery. Or would be. If Sam and I were Maurice’s only dependants. But we aren’t, you se. .I’ve long suspected something of the sort, but only recently have chapter and verse come my way. In an envelope posted in Gloucester on the twenty-third of June, to be precise. The letter from Beatrix?.

Mr. Pyke Period, a sweet old bachelor is sharing his home with Mr. Harold Cartell, a disagreeable bachelor with an even more disagreeable dog.

The household is not peaceful, and the connections between various relatives and hangers-on are a bit confusing. In the midst of this chaos, Mr. Period brings in a pretty young typist to help him with the book he’s writing on etiquette. A young man with artistic ambitions is part of the mixed company, and a flirtation ensues. Which I enjoyed.

Contrasting with the well-bred typist and the artistic young gentleman are two young people with atrocious manners and slippery morals. These two are busy trying on various cons, when Harold Cartell is murdered. Chief Inspector Alleyn is quickly on the scene, valiantly attempting to persuade everyone to stop lying. Meanwhile the two dogs in the plot are getting amorous and biting people.

Happily there is a list of characters in the front of the book, but I still found it hard to keep in mind their connections with one another. There are good character sketches and well written passages, but I don’t think this is one of Ngaio Marsh’s best mysteries. 

Still, I’m reading every book in this series so as to keep up with Alleyn’s career.
Nice detection by Alleyn as usual ,but not as nice suspects as other of her books

If you like Agatha Christie’s books you will enjoy the Inspector Allleyn mystery series. They are very well written and have well defined characters. I am looking forward to starting another one.
Recommend, but not her best. Half the fun is discovering what place, time, and characters she's chosen to make into a story! She must've been terrific to know personally!
I first became familar with the author's work after reading a blurb by Steven King on what he was reading. Goddard is not macabre but his characters are sometimes sinister and dark. King also remarked that he devoured the first few and slowed his pace down to enjoy the books. There is one left for me to read and I am saving it for a Holiday gift for myself.
This novel is really mysterious to start, but once the murder is solved , the novel continues, with twist after twist--even a new one as the novel ends. That one is one too many. Goddard is always good, but he sometimes gets carried away.
This is a very thrilling story - kept me in suspense wondering where will it go next.
I love Mr.Goddard's style of writing. Will read more of his stories.
I like Robert Goddard and find his novels whimsical and engaging. So I bought this one with enthusiasm. Plot sounded good and intriging. What a let-down. The main character Charlotte has no back-bone and I really could'nt believe how pliable she was, made inane comments about important events and did not challenge some bizarre behaviour from the main characters. I persevered when I really wnated to give up in the hope the writing and plot would improve. Neither did. Do not waste your time on this book, there are many other Goddard books that are far better - well written with complex plots that keep you guessing to the end. This was dreadful.
