      This novel, starring the newly-promoted Superintendent Littlejohn, has a wonderfully descriptive opening chapter which contains the first of two deaths , that of Uncle Fred, during the Carnival in Douglas, Isle of Man. The rest of the book is full of detail about the island at the height of the holiday season in the late 1950’s.We are in a world, not of luxury hotels, but of down-market boarding houses like Sea Vista, packed to the attics with holidaymakers. The Superintendent, tired after yet [...]

      An older man, known as Fred, is found stabbed in the back in the middle of a carnival in Douglas. Inspector Littlejohn is visiting his friend, the Archdeacon of the Isle of Man, and is asked by his friend to help with the investigation. Can they unravel the mystery?Well-written mystery. I enjoy these classic mysteries.

      Another great Littlejohn mystery. Beautiful writing, evoking the atmosphere of the Isle of Mann.

      Good old George Bellairs !! You can always rely on him for a good whodunnit. If one can get over the idea that whenever or wherever Supt. Littlejohn goes on holiday or has a break, there is always a murder or two and the local police always co-opt him in to help. This one is set, like quite a few of his others, on The Isle of Man. Very good topographical detail which makes me want to go there for my holidays. An elderly man is found dead at the local carnival. It seems no-one knows where he came [...]

      What another great book from George Bellairs, he has managed to write a fresh tale with Littlejohn and a archdeacon as his Cromwell and a local inspector Knell on the Isle of Man. I enjoyed the humour of this book and the twists and turns sometimes called red herrings. I really loved this book and hope you will as well
