Well, don't let the title lead you astray - this murder plot is, though complicated and twisted enough, far from perfect in the way of logic, because the authors just hide too many facts, present us more suspects than Chandler and scatter more red herrings than Agatha Christie... But it certainly IS fun guessing all the way (and Nikki's idea isn't even bad; it MIGHT have been the solution just as well!), although I doubt if many viewers will really find the murderer at last.
Anyway, this movie, the third one where Ralph Bellamy plays 'Ellery Queen', differs from the previous ones in a welcome way: it takes things less serious and 'allows' some jokes to be thrown in. So you can really prepare yourself for an enjoyable 'whodunit' with moments of suspense as well as fun!
