I looked up my comments on it on rec.arts.mystery, where I said I liked it a lot (except for some grumping about safeties on revolvers). I did have a question noone there answered:

Mary/Nina refers to two characters as Frick and Frack. OK. But at a couple of points in the book, they use those names to refer to each other. I looked, and couldn't find any instance of her using the names in front of them or anyone they know who could've told them about the nicknames. Anybody else?

Thanks, Pat
