Interesting concept of an aristocratic confined to house arrest in a glorious hotel post Russian Revolution.
This book was written by a former police detective and frankly reads like a police report. The story itself is fascinating however.
I found this book very insightful regarding class divisions in the UK today and the continuing reasons for these divisions. Read not long before the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, it puts the antipathy felt towards the working class in sharp focus. As I have only lived in the UK for a few years, social class and issues of social mobility are quite foreign to me, so this was a good read, albeit somewhat disheartening in its conclusions.
