The plot is classically complicated, the characters crisp, the plot fast-moving: It kept me up a couple of nights because I had trouble putting it down. I highly recommend this as a just a great, well-paced fun read.
. An exciting mystery, from the 1930's. Eager to read the next Jonas Watcher mystery. 
There's a good balance between focus on characters and their relationships and the unfolding mystery. Some of the terminology was a bit unfamiliar, but that's because of the time setting of the story. And yet, that feature makes it feel more authentic. 
This is the first book I've read by Gene Poschman...
And it won't be the last... I enjoyed the story...and can't wait to learn more about the characters in the next book....I'm also a big fan of this era and to his credit...he was spot on...
