fantastically dated somewhat bizarre all in all, a fast fun read.
Oh, No A Hard Boiled Humorous Western with Supernatural Elements This was a childish dud all the way through despite a few laughs generated , suffused in gradeschool level humour, and employing what should be forbidden literary devices to get out of plot difficulties.Whatever you do, do not read Miss Shumway Waves a Wand as your first James Hadley Chase book He wrote dozens of hard boiled novels, but in this volume, Chase attempted to do something that he mercifully , by all accounts, attempted [...]

This one from the maestro was right out of left field, especially when you are expecting his usual femme fatale involved in murder, mystery or espionage Myra Shumway waves than her wand, when it comes to black magic, talking dogs and floating bodies It s not very often that we have a good laugh, however this one is really quite funny and very clever.
This was unlike any other Chase novel I ve read I expected a femme fatale involved in crime, but got the supernatural Myra Shumway It s not quite satisfying read for Chase fans, but as I said earlier, it s quite different
Very interestinglooks autobiographicalwords like grubby for indian soldiers and showing them as cobblers and filthy not withstanding Now an interesting twist of twins and myra s double play gets very interesting and hookingrather spooky.t a good ending.ke a bollywood film
I liked the book, i read it long ago so i don t remember much of it, but i do remember liking it a lot I think it should get a rating of at least 4 I liked the p.lot a.lot P
one of my best laugh out loud novels ever a weird but truly rewarding book i highly recommend it for fans of the supernatural book genre.
