Death on the Agenda
Amazingly enough, Henry Tibbett is at work! Crime tends to catch him when he’s on vacation, but this time around Henry’s at a coppers’ conference, an international effort intended to stop drug-smuggling. The conference is in Switzerland (for a Scotland Yard detective, Henry does manage to get around!) and the always sensible Emmy has come along for the parties and the chocolate. It’s a glittering whirl of attractive folks in their best early-1960s attire until one of Henry’s colleagues winds up dead and Henry, of all people, becomes Suspect No. 1. A minor but real pleasure here? The reappearance of some characters from Dead Men Don’t Ski, widening both the Tibbetts’ social circle and the circle of suspects.
"Addicts of formal detection need only the announcement of a new Moyes. Other readers should know that she tells a story well…does a fine job on Swiss local color…and depicts middle aged marriage and love with unusual understanding" New York Times contemporary review.
