Apart from few re known classic mysteries never tried books that deliver the flow of intended meaning through plays of such caliber which is astounding in my honest opinion. My favorite line is “Oh, life wouldn’t be so bad in spite of everything all we poor wretches need is to be left in peace by those damned bailiffs who turn up on our doorsteps brandishing the demands of idealism”. Thoroughly promising fare and highly recommended read for sure.

Totally loved the verbosity and amusing exchanges between the characters. 😊
