Having established Roger Sheringham as a brilliant but headstrong young sleuth who frequently made mistakes, trusted the wrong people and imbibed considerable liquid refreshment, Anthony Berkeley took his controversial character into much darker territory with The Silk Stocking Murders, a sensational novel about gruesome serial killings by an apparent psychopath bent on targeting vulnerable young women.

Not my favourite
I like the narrator, but found the story a little tedious. Glad to have finished so I can listen to something else.

Not a very exciting novel.
Berkeley is a master of English language. The story has an interesting start. However, what kills the emotion is that the pace is too slow. Endless dialogues where nothing is really important or makes a contribution to solve the case. Nothing happens until you reach the last chapters. I felt asleep several times.
