The Singing Spider by Angus MacVicar

I suppose that in today’s market, this might best be described as a cozy mystery. Originally published in 1937, I found it to be a somewhat quaint book given the passing years, with plenty of character, and mysteries to keep you going.

I did however find this a somewhat challenging book to read – mostly because of the author’s use of Scottish brogue in his dialogue. I get that it is set in a small Scottish village, but sometimes I was left crying out for a little decipherable English. As a mystery novel, I think it worked quite well, leading the main character down an ever-winding road, filled with red herrings… and some actual herrings…

An interesting, if occasionally frustrating read.

I received a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

3 stars.
