Book Overview

When Scotland Yard's young Mr. Charlesworth calls at Christophe et Cie about a murder, he finds five charming young women--all pretty, all suspects, all ready to obstruct his investigations. He would be hard pressed to say which causes more problems--when there is a second murder, or when he falls in love with the main suspect.

An intricate little puzzler!

Brand writes a very detailed and interesting little puzzle in this book. I love the name of the book too. The title tells a lot. This book is about women, and the friendships, jealousies, and petty issues that occur among a group of women. It is a little dated because the book was written in 1969, but nothing about the essence of women has really changed from what is portrayed here. You might find the investigating police officer a bit too precious, but he does get there in the end. The book is about the employees at an exclusive dressmakers shop where an employee is poisoned. There are lots of red herrings and extraneous details, but the book will keep you guessing. (NOTE: I have been corrected, the book was written in the late thirties or early forties, not 1969) But I still enjoyed it and I've read all Ms. Brand's Inspector Cockerill books, and enjoyed them.
