Fans of mystery fiction who cut their teeth on Agatha Christie or even Arthur Conan Doyle may feel at home with the pacing and slow character development of Edelweiss Castle, which is subtitled Death of an Interviewer and teased on the cover as “A Detective Etienne Friendly Mystery.” The novel is thoroughly European in its feel, not just because it’s set in a fictional Austrian province but because it’s about the dynamics of old-world aristocracy, albeit in the modern age.
