I honestly don’t know what to say on this one. It never really pulled me into the story. I didn’t really identify with any of the characters, except maybe Gilbert, simply because he had a curious mind. I left it with 3 stars, because although I didn’t particularly like the story, it was well written in what I assume is the style of the era. My book club that I read this one with enjoyed discussing all the 30s slang. Also, not one of us guessed the ending, which I think is a sign of a superb mystery!
