Comments One Man Show

  • Leslie

    Probably this 13th entry in the Appleby series only deserves 3.5 stars but it was just the book I needed right now. It was a witty art-based mystery (with a twist at the end) which made me laugh out loud several times. I was pleased to see Judith Appleby play a significant role, not just initiating her husband into the case.


  • Derek

    (It's curious: my copy is actually titled Murder is an Art, noted as previously published as One Man Show. It has also accumulated the title A Private View, somehow.)It starts off with the Assistant Commissioner and his wife, seemingly Society people, on their way to a private art showing and becoming embroiled in art theft and incidental murder. Experience with Ellery Queen and the like--argumentative upper-crust personages finding unlikely and unnecessarily complicated means of offing one anot [...]


  • Polly

    One of my favorite of the not-that-great Innes mysteries. Not-that-great because it's not (by Innes' own standards) particular well-written nor is it one of the delightfully wacky plots which characterize many of his earliest books, but for some reason, I like this one, all the same (and there's a certain amount of wackyness, just not up to the standards of something like The Secret Vangard or From London Far.

    The Appleby mysteries by Michael Innes are always filled with witty descriptions, great period detail, and plenty of coincidences to help get the mystery solved. The emphasis is usually on witty conversation though there is a good deal of action in this one with some good car chases and gun fights. Not at all violent in a lurid or graphic way like some of the current mysteries. Kind of reminds me of those 50's era British comedies from Ealing studios. This is a quick read with a chance to improv [...]


  • Marginalia2

    Well written, humorous adventure and mystery. His literary style reflects his background as a Professor of English.“A meticulously elegant style, a dry literary humour, and a slightly absurd (and, indeed, an absurdly slight) plot are the hallmarks of a thriller by Mr. Michael Innes: hallmarks which have been constantly imitated but which remain somehow distinct.”– Times Literary Supplement, 6th October 1961


  • Littlelixie

    Rather clever with lots of twists and turns.


  • Lisa Kucharski

    An enjoyable and humorous mystery. The story has two parts, viewed from the Inspector Husband side and then the Wife's side.


  • Cathy Houston

    good mystery; Sir John Appleby going solo and fixing everything
