Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Death in the Middle Watch is vintage Leo Bruce, enhanced by the effortless humour that is a hallmark of all Leo Bruce mysteries. This time, Carolus is enjoying himself on a holiday cruise. On the first night aboard the Summer Queen, there is a shout of "Man Overboard!" From that point on to the moment of Deene's unexpected revelations, the reader will find that unique mixture of artless fun and grim terror Bruce devotees savour. The reader will also be glad to welcome once again Mr Gorringer (Deene's public school Headmaster) and Mrs Stick (Deene's intrepid housekeeper and cook who is always in a state of horror at Deene's involvement in the solution of crimes).
