Originally published in 1910.
The story is as much fun as an old 1930's movie farce or a Chevy Chase movie. The humor is only partly from the snarks and wiseassery, but situational as well. Pretty much along the lines of "if anything can go wrong--it will".
Take a group of friends of the privileged class with good intentions (but no one with brains except the main protagonist) in a big old house in NYC. Add in a cantankerous aunt and a visiting civil engineer, a hastily concocted scheme crafted of good intentions, enforced medical quarantine and no servants, paparazzi, missing jewels, and you have the basic elements. Well worth the read!!
Karen Commins gives a fantastic audio performance as narrator! She has all of the audio emotions down perfectly, and it's easy to know which *character* is verbalizing.

Set in the 1930’s it’s the tale of a dinner party gone bad. Apparently I don’t read enough historical pieces as to me this one didn’t seem to stay in one era. I didn’t really care for the story as it seemed to portray most of the characters as too stupid to catch on to a ruse.
I was provided an audio version of this book in exchange for an honest review. The narration was good. The narrator did a good job with what she had to work with.
Based on this book I would not read others by this author.
