Another interesting book in this series that is more than a crime novel. I think the plot is probably a bit ropey if you stop to think about it too long, but I don’t want to do that, it was interesting enough. I enjoyed it as a period piece from the 1930s when people who seem modern and unconventional are nevertheless completely caught up in the coronation of a new king - this obsession with royalty along with other views that would seem very weird to me today was one of the most captivating things about the book and made me think about how much attitudes, and society in general, have changed over the last eighty years.
