Operation Alcestis - Maggie Rennert

the style has taken a bit of getting used to--I'm having flashbacks to the style of an author I haven't read in ages: Sarah Caudwell (which is weird, because of course Caudwell's books came after Maggie Rennert's, but I'm sort of doing things in reverse)--but now that I've had a few chapters of it, and the story has started to peep out from the wry quirky wordiness, I'm enjoying this. intriguing set-up to this Mystery, including the early arrest of what seems to be the wrong suspect. I also learned who poor Alcestis was...and what her story means to this story.
