I am in love with Bailey s detective fiction despite his flaws as an author This particular volume is the first novel featuring Reginald Fortune, a physician turned detective who began appearing in short stories in 1920 It is a fairly well made story, with Bailey s usual tics, but I enjoy the company of Mr Fortune so much that I can easily put up with repetitive dialogue tags and other such authorial shortcomings.
Suicide, gossip, rumor a number of things that are not, strictly speaking, crimes alert Mr Fortune to the existence of someone or a group behind events A rising politician seems to be the center of the events, along with an impish, aging dowager, her lovely granddaughter, and a farrago of society and political notables This was the first Mr Fortune novel, but is as exciting and full of characters as any.
The story was interesting but if there was one page in which Mr Fortune did not moan I must have missed it.
