This book is for you. I've been suffering because Netflix does not stream Midsomers Murders or Poirot. This book was as comfortable as Saturdays years ago when you could catch both shows on cable. Grab a cup tea and find a comfortable chair; this book should be read at your leisure.

The story was rich and engaging. The style is a true to classic British murder mysteries, although not quite as complex as Christie's. The characters were well-developed; you understand their actions because the author does such a great job of laying out their personalities and providing the background that shaped them.

The plot was superb. Although I was able to guess part of the ending, I was nicely diverted along the way by good red herrings.
