    When Stuart Font decides to throw a house-warming party in his new flat he invites everyone in his building. The party will be one everyone remembers. But not for the right reasons....

    Kathleen Rogers says: "Not as grimly creepy as many other Rendell titles"

    but a good listen, nonetheless. I guess this would be Rendell's version of a village mystery. The cast of characters are the residents of a small road in North London, some living in houses, some in apartments. The point of view shifts from one character to another, all of whom see what they want to see, and act accordingly. There are various crimes, some exciting amateur sleuthing, and some classically comedic plot turns--not farce, just some genuinely pleasant things that happen. Generally well read by the narrator, except for one or two moments of over the top falsetto for the female characters. Very enjoyable.
