Read full description of the books:
I heard about this book on the Classic Mysteries podcast and was happy to see it was available at my local library. It took me three tries (and renewing it twice both times) for me to finally get it read. Not that it was bad. In fact, it's a delightful story, it just took awhile to get into it.
Henry Tibbet, a well-known detective, is going on vacation with his wife to a remote skiing village. When his bosses find out, they tell him that there has been a problem with drug smuggling coming out of that particular Italian town. While Henry works for Scotland Yard, he is known to Interpol and they want his help.
On the way up, Henry and Emma meet several people on a train, all of whom are going to Santa Chiar with them. There is a trio of young people, an English colonel and his stereotypical wife, as well as a countess getting away from her rather stiff and cold husband.
There are more people that they meet once they get to the hotel, the most notable being Herr Hauser. He seems like a slimy sort who is more than a little interested in the daughter of a German family staying at the hotel. Of course, it should come as no surprise that Herr Hauser is the one to get bumped off. It's just sorting through the myriad characters and each of their motives.
