THE WIND BLOWS DEATH - Cyril Hare

Review Written By
Karen Chisholm

As Golden Age authors go, Cyril Hare has got to be one of my all time favourites, mostly because of his style.  In THE WIND BLOWS DEATH (originally published as When the Wind Blows) there's a nicely complex plot - which frankly the reader is never going to be able to guess unless you're an expert on the scoring and orchestration of a certain symphony as well as some of the most obscure points of English law you could possibly imagine, but no matter. These books, whilst light and very very proper in tone, are intriguing and extremely enjoyable.
