Journal Entry 1 by xtrdnry from Parkdale, Victoria Australia on Sunday, August 1, 2021
In a gloomy flat off Islington High Street, Chief Inspector Brett Nightingale and Sergeant Beddoes find an old woman dead. The Princess Olga Karukhin, who fled from Russia at the time of the Revolution, has lived in terror of being discovered ever since.

Olga's grandson, Ivan, appears to have run from the scene, but is later seen returning to the flat as though oblivious to the terrible crime. Taking place between 22nd and 24th December, Nightingale's enquiry takes him across London, culminating in the wrapping of the mystery on Christmas Eve.

Journal Entry 4 by wingmarmee463wing at Templestowe, Victoria Australia on Sunday, November 14, 2021
A slow mystery of sorts with rather confusing muddled dialogue. The premise is good, but ultimately a coherent plot line is never fully realized.

I love mysteries, so had to pick this up.

Journal Entry 7 by AnonymousFriend at Wantirna South, Victoria Australia on Sunday, November 12, 2023
Good story, very well researched but the telling is not so good, even when you allow for the fact that in the fifties descriptions were expected. This was too detailed in many parts, making the storyline obscure. Such a pity!
