Summary

Ten stylish Londoners assemble for a smart dinner party - a knot of people with pasts and connections that at first seem few but are later found to be many. As the wine flows and conversation continues, the guests anticipate the arrival of the distinguished Hilda Damien, a rich widow, who is expected to look in after dinner. But Hilda is inexplicably absent for a very grim reason.

Imaginative tale

I didn't know what to expect with this book, and I still haven't worked out the connection between the title and the story. It starts off as a witty social commentary on a diverse group of people who meet at a dinner party, but quickly develops into an extraordinary story of the nefarious acts and ambitions of some of the characters. I enjoyed the book. It is read with great verve that adds to the pleasure.
