The Five Red Herrings - Dorothy L. Sayers Bunter's delivery is compared to [b:The Castle of Otranto|12923|The Castle of Otranto|Horace Walpole|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1166512753s/12923.jpg|46432]. I'm going to have to read that.As a whole, the book is very like a logic puzzle: lots of train tables, and six different suspects, all of whom are painters, and tons of working out routes. And the ALIBI is the thing compelling the complex scene-setting of the murder, to my amusement, because who ever worries about alibis in real life?No doubt many would be offended by the Scottish dialect as written (since the assumption is that the English speakers have no dialect [yeah, right[). I thought about that, I did. But I was just amused.Personal copy
