Mrs. Vina Gregson should be sitting pretty. Acquitted of murdering her husband, she has inherited his money, and can afford to dress in latest styles. Unfortunately, her fashionable ensembles go largely unseen, as the Widow Gregson remains essentially a prisoner, trapped in her elegant New York apartment with occasional furtive forays to her Connecticut estate.

Worse, she has recently begun receiving increasingly menacing letters - letters written, she is certain, by the person who killed her husband. Taking the matter to the police would only heighten her notoriety, so she calls on Henry Gamadge, the gentleman-sleuth who earlier featured in Murders in Volume 2, and who is known both for his discretion and for his ability to solve problems that baffle the police.… (mer)

This 4th book in the Gamadge series is the first one in which Henry Gamadge is married (though the signs were clear at the end of the 3rd book that this was on its way). Daly did a good job of providing all the clues that Gamadge picks up on without signalling to the reader which are the important ones and which are red herrings - a feature of this series that I truly appreciate!

An old-fashioned fast and fun who-done-it, and who-may-do-it again) featuring Henry Gamadge as investigator. He specializes in old books but that doesn't stop him from quickly grasping people's motivations, strengths and weaknesses.

Gamadge's style is unconventional but brilliantly right on target! ( )

Doom is the House Without the Door -
'Tis entered from the sun,
And then the ladder's thrown away
Because escape is done.

'Tis varied by the dream,
Of what they do outside...

Gamadge hunched up his shoulders against the rawness of the November air, and peered from under his hat-brim at the little archway with its ornamental lantern.
