Review by Chandler’s Ford Crime Readers

Some group members found this hard going at first but we agreed that it was a style of writing very much of the period and you had to relax into the book. This is not a hard hitting page turning, what’s coming next, frantic storyline. It is a comedy of manners. The period and the setting are well defined. The Advertising industry laid bare and we think much the same as today in how it views consumers. It is witty and very funny in places. class divisions form an integral part of the unfolding story. All in all an enjoyable read.
