The Final Solution: A Story of Detection

Published by at 1:32 pm under Books

by Michael Chabon.

A short book that might have been written as a practice exercise to achieve a particular style. Style in this case being musty British detective stories. A very old, retired ace detective turned beekeeper is faced with an odd situation that eventually involves a murder. The story is set during 1944 in the war time English countryside. Nicely told bits and nice characters, but overall just a little piece of candy. Chabon is a good story teller, but not much is accomplished in this one. Not particularly satisfying.
