review · E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Cyril HareUre I would place it high on a tbr pile Got to page 20 Page after page of boring character description More character description No action No interest I may look at some later pages but I doubt it will get any better It s not often I don t finish a book but here s one And now I see that it s a series WowThe cover has a violin on it plus it s about th orchestra so we thought it might be of interest An interesting case of a murdered violinist with plenty of suspects To solve it completely some knowledge of the works of Mozart and Dickens will
help as well as what Francis Pettigrew describes as an elementary pointas well as what Francis Pettigrew describes as an elementary point English Law no longer on the Statute BookIn fact the murderer was to me uite clearly signalled about 40% OF THE WAY THROUGH AS WAS THE GENERAL OUTLINE the way through as was the general outline the motive What holds the reader s attention is the way in which the Chief Constable draws Pettigrew into the investigation while not cutting Inspector Trimble outThere are plenty of well drawn characters and the uality of the writing is as good as ever but I do not agree with Barzun and Taylor who consider this a masterpiece35 stars Pretty good I ll try the next one If you want an old fashioned whodunit in the style of Agatha Christie you may well be enchanted by Cyril Hare s 1949 story The Wind Blows Death I have to admit his books have really weird titlesIt unfolds at a leisurely pace and there are vital clues in the beginning if you are alert though there are uite a few red herrings too Hint being familiar with Dicken s David Copperfield may help It took me a while to sort out the characters but from then on I was hooked An intelligent escapist read. E un'atmosfera già resa incandescente da un violentissimo litigio scoppiato prima della prova generale tra la stessa Lucy e un clarinettista Se poi aggiungiamo la misteriosa scomparsa dell'organista e la mancata apparizione di un secondo clarinettista be' cosa ci si può aspettare che accada durante il concerto Che la solista venga strangolata nel suo camerino prima di entrare in scena naturalmente Il romanzo è del 1949.

#EVENTS TRIGGERED BY THE CULPRIT BUT EVEN WITHOUT THAT #triggered by the culprit but even without that I found it an enjoyable mystery One of the things that I liked was that the mystery unfolds step by step with and discordant elements being uncovered that seem to hint now at this now at that I was not wholly surprised by the identity of the murderer but I would have had to agree with Pettigrew s original assessment that the person he believed had done it couldn t have done it Francis Pettigrew is drawn into another investigation when a soloist is murdered at a concert he s helping to organise An enjoyable golden age mystery Rating 3An okay read I thought but it is the least successful of the author s works that I have readThe solution was rather complicated and the reason for the crime itself was very obscure and something only a solicitor might have guessed atAn interesting if you are going through the authors works but other wise not Orchestra In uella veste è al corrente di tutto ciò che accade; non ignora per esempio le annose discussioni tra i sostenitori di Mozart e uelli di Beethoven né la proverbiale litigiosità dei direttori e degli orchestrali Il fatto che Lucy Carless la famosa violinista ingaggiata come solista per il concerto di apertura sia in cattivi rapporti con il segretario della Markshire suo ex marito non serve certo a rasserenar. .
