This is the spark that fuels my Ambler/Gilbert fire that was the first half of 2015. I am always in the mood for a good British murder mystery when I am staying at my parent's for the holidays and found this classic in the shelf. Reading it at this age, I get all the cultural subtleties and manners, so the book seemed less subtle than when I was a younger man. Still, thoroughly enjoyable.
