I did read it all the way through, but not really a great read as I expected from this era and setting. I felt the 1st murder was too contrived and unnecessarily complex, not especially well written, and a few never explained key events were never, in my reading, made clear.

This is like a poor man's version of Agatha Christie mysteries where she disastrously ventures into the espionage genre instead of sticking to her English village theme. It's cliched, ham handed and rather boring. I read about half and gave up.
