In a Teapot

Terence Faherty's "In a Teapot" was recommended to me by several people at Bouchercon. I bought it and read it; it's only 118 pages, but it still took me several days because I am so slow a reader. My slowness is no indication of what I think of the book. It was wonderful. Set in the 1940s, the story really made me feel like I was reading an artifact from that time. There was tarnish on Hollywood's Golden Era. The tone was pitch perfect throughout, the characters interesting (especially the new bride) and the mystery a tidy knot. Great fun, I thought.

I'll look out for more Faherty in the future.
