The language structure here definitely reflects the 50's origins of this novel. An interesting look into writing in that era. The English detectives' journey to France, the tracking down of the forgerer and then other criminal happenings hold one in suspense, worthy of Sherlock Holmes. A tad 'golly gosh' mixed in with Boy's Own Magazine daring-do's and sleuthing.
All the usual suspects with a couple of unusual ones thrown in for good measure.
Enjoyable, with amusingly archaic turns of phrases as seen from sixty or so years on.
