For the most part amusing and enjoyable, although the middle section needs pruning. Americanisms irritated some readers. The stereotypical quaint old English village together with stock character (think Miss Marple/Midsommer Murders) sets up expectations which are steadily destroyed by Simonson. Mr P's last stand is a surprisingly satisfactory ending. Recommend to others as it provoked discussion.
