The Man in the Queue is a good, classic mystery. It is the first Alan Grant mystery and I have to say I am looking forward to reading more of them. Inspector Grant is all sorts of intriguing as a character and his intuition - so prominently featured in this book - makes him a great inspector/5(). But one man, his head sunk down upon his chest, slowly sank to his knees and then, still more slowly, keeled over on his face. Thinking he had fainted, a spectator moved to help, but recoiled in horror from what lay before him: the man in the queue had a small silver dagger neatly plunged into his back/5.
