From the Publisher:
One of England's most critically acclaimed mystery writers offers what is at once an affectionate homage to and an audacious satire of the classic drawing room murder mystery, in which a seemingly genteel country inn is instead revealed to be a place of ghastly cruelties and humiliations--a place where murder is almost comforting.One of England's most acclaimed younger mystery writers, the creator of Detective Aurelio Zen, gives us a brilliant and haunting variation on the classic drawing-room murder novel. The setting is Eventide Lodge, where the guests have gathered for tea. Colonel Weatherby is reading by the fire. Mrs. Hargreave III is whiling away her time at patience. And Miss Rosemary Travis and her friend, Dorothy, are wondering which of their housemates will be the next to die.For even as Michael Dibdin's elderly sleuths debate clues and motives, it becomes clear that Eventide Lodge is not a genteel country inn but a place of ghastly cruelties and humiliations. A place where the logic of murder is . . .almost comforting. At once affectionate homage and audacious satire, The Dying of the Light will delight any aficionado of Patricia Highsmith, Peter Dickinson, or Ruth Rendell.

New York Times Book Review
"...a surprisingly sweet affirmation of the verities of the classic English detective story." - Marilyn Stasio
