      The Red Redmaynes is an atmospheric piece, set for the first half of the novel on the sinister, ominous landscape of Dartmoor The bleak moorland and the beautiful Devon coastline emphasizes the gruesome story of the Redmayne family and the tragic way that its members die Jenny, the youngest member of the Redmayne clan, marries Michael Pendean against the wishes of her three uncles The uncles hold the Redmayne fortunes in their hands and can withhold Jenny s portion if they do not approve of her [...]

      Gran novela policial NO es novela negra, es decir, es m s el estilo de Agatha Christie que el estilo de Dashiel Hammet Excelente intriga y curioso giro con el detective Vale la pena leer especialmente la traducci n elegida por J.L.Borges para publicar en la colecci n Mi biblioteca personal Esta biblioteca merece seguirse Si Borges era un gran escritor, fue a n m s grande como lector Si recomienda un libro, yo le prestar a atenci n.

      The Red Redmaynes is well written, the sort of book whose style and language makes the journey to the plot s resolution a delightful one The plot itself is complex, with red herrings and clues to pick over.

      I really enjoyed this book The setting is mostly on Dartmoor in Devon which is an area much loved by Phillpotts Very atmospheric An unusual situation in that the British Scotland Yard Detective is joined on the case by a famous American Detective The action moves to Italy for a while and then back to Devon Quite a convoluted plot which is difficult to describe without giving the game away Typical stilted language of the 1920 s but none the worse for that Eden Phillpotts is quite unjustly underra [...]

      It was a good mystery, but so for its historic interest in the mystery genre It s supposed to have the only American detective by a British author according to the blurb on the Dover cover But the American detective doesn t make a showing until page 196 of 384 pages That s for a reason, but the wind up is still a little slow But it must be somewhat distinctive for that structure how many mysteries delay the arrival of the real detective until half way through the book I guess it s no surprise t [...]

      I read this a few years ago, and today while reading some essay about detective novel and thinking about a couple of early Poirot when I remembered the story of this novel For a long time I couldn t remember the name of the book, but finally a bit of luck lead me to this again.I probably read it because of the Borges recommendation, and it is worth the time you spend.It is available from Project Gutenberg if you want to try it.

      Perfectly good read, for what it is nothing too special, but well enough done Mostly, this author is notable for having encouraged young Agatha Christie to write, but this is worth a look if you run across it somewhere It is about a hundred pages longer than it needs to be, though, unfortunately.

      Fun book, but I guessed the killer from the beginning of the story, so not a very mysterious mystery.
