Deering’s ‘dressed for death’ promised to deliver a sensational plot of the “who-dun it”- reminiscent of the great Agatha Christie’s works.
The 1930’s setting was perfect, and the glamorous regency theme even better. The characters were appropriate with ladies, gentlemen, valets, and of course Scotland yard.
I enjoyed the story well enough, it had a pleasing amount of suspense although I admit it was still wanting. Perhaps it is because I have exposed myself to many mysteries that I was able to figure out, early on, who the deluded suspect was. Anyway, this did not prevent me from enjoying this book. There is something actually pleasing about knowing “who-dun-it” before the book is over, and being able to enthusiastically declare “I KNEW IT!!!!”
It was a noble effort by the author, and although I wish I was more pleased, I look forward to reading other works by her.

"Don’t let anyone despise the gifts you’ve been given, and don’t you do so , either. They may not fit anyone else’s idea of a calling, but the world has all sorts of needs, and God has provided for each of them to be filled, if we all do our part. It would be a shame if your part were left undone”.
