    There s something I find immensely appealing about Ursula Curtiss s strange amalgams of dark comedy, psychological thriller and social satire The writing s often a bit bumpy sometimes, I suspect, because copyeditors tried to out think the original text and the characterization can be a bit skimpy, but the end product s nevertheless very pleasing Don t Open the Dooris set in one of those communities where just about everyone s pretty chi chi yet there are pockets of abject poverty Our main There s something I find immensely appealing about Ursula Curtiss s strange amalgams of dark comedy, psychological thriller and social satire The writing s often a bit bumpy sometimes, I suspect, because copyeditors tried to out think the original text and the characterization can be a bit skimpy, but the end product s nevertheless very pleasing Don t Open the Dooris set in one of those communities where just about everyone s pretty chi chi yet there are pockets of abject poverty Our main viewpoint character is Eve Quinn, a successful copywriter who s decided to retreat to rural anonymity for a while to get out from under the skirts of a foolish engagement Through force of circumstance, she has been compelled to look after her ghastly, overwhelmingly spoilt three year old nephew Ambrose luckily she has the assistance of occasional daily home help Iris Saxon to look after him.But then there s a brutal murder in the neighborhood, and then another .There isn t a perceivable motive for the killings Neither of the dead women married sisters were precisely friends of Eve, although both were acquaintances It seems there was some dark secret in the sisters shared past, a secret known only to Henry Conlon, Eve s landlord and new neighbor .The novel is not an exercise in sustained mystery somewhere before the midpoint we re told who the killer is And for a long time there s no great suspense just a constant flow of entertainment enlivened by lots of little revelations and mini cliffhangers In the final few pages, though, there definitely is a buildup of suspense, and it melds quite excellently with the earlier merriment.Curtiss won t be everyone s cup of tea But she is mine

    This book definitely qualifies as a page turner Finding out who the baddie was early on didn t dampen the suspense I think it actually made thingsthrilling I have plenty to say about the story, but I can t quite figure out how to do so without spoiling some things, so I ll just leave it at that.

    The writing is obscure, sometimes difficult to determine what she is talking about The ending is a bit weak, yet the plot is very well done.

  4. Mmyoung Mmyoung says:

    An interesting study in human behaviour, a close up examination of the complexities and hidden motivations and fears of typical Americans The last two chapters, however, feel rather pro formaas if the author had used a string of murders as an excuse to examination this group of people and now, done with that examination, just wanted to sweep the capture of the murderer out of the way in a confusingly perfunctory and unconvincing manner.

    Not a fun mystery This is a serious book Hard to understand his motivation
