Description:

"The Grand Hotel, Spurn Cove, is not what is called a hotel de luxe—that is to say, a sham palace, all glare, glitter, and jazz music, where everything costs about fifteen times what it is worth,—but it is a very good hotel, with an atmosphere of solid comfort about it, and something of a tradition in cooking. When you enter it on some blustering day after a tramp along the coast, as the swing door cuts off the last wild clutch of the wind at your tingling ears, and you pass over thick-piled carpets to the generous fire burning in the lounge, a sort of heavenly calm seems to lap you round; in the security of which, sunk deep in capacious armchairs, you will have no thought but for tea and muffins." The staff of this staid hostelry are pitched into the middle of a murder when a body is found in a hotel, along with plates for counterfeiting bank notes from a (fictional) South American republic. The only one of O'Duffy's mysteries ever published in the U.S.A. [Suggest a different description.]
