Compton-Burnett's third novel, the one by which, as Connolly puts it: "The pattern is now set: Scarlatti-like dialogue, atrocious crimes, tyranny enthroned in the bosom of the family, the Victorian paterfamilias as a root of all evil and justice proceeding ineluctably as in her favourite models in Greek trady. All her charcters, whatever their station, insist upon the pleasure of expressing themselves perfectly."
