I've enjoyed Jane Langton's work in the past but this was a bit of a dud. The mystery had weird supernatural elements that never really worked and then it just ended.

Had a lovely meetup in Porter Square, Cambridge, on this very warm afternoon. The title and Escher-ian cover-art caught my eye, and I had to try this one!

Later: I admit I'm giving this one extra points for its Mount Auburn Cemetery scenes; I've been there, including a climb to the top of the tower (though without any vengeful people or ghosts trying to push me off), and can easily imagine spending lots of time there if I lived within walking distance. I also got a kick out of the many local references - building styles, history, even specific street names ("Hey, I found a Little Free Library near there!").

But I enjoyed the story, too, even with its odd doppleganger elements. The gradual unraveling of the tale behind the tragic death of a child kept my interest, and I enjoyed the in-character chat between the Kellys and Leonard.

The Escher aspect was tied in pretty well too, not just thrown in for effect. All in all, a very good read!
