This is one of the five most skillfully crafted mysteries I have ever seen.
28 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Through the years, I have sought out uncommonly interesting mysteries, those is which it is not only uncertain WHO did it, but WHAT was done. This mystery is one of the very best of the species, I defy anyone to sort out what happened until, at the end, everything falls into place like an exquisitely crafted puzzle. My congrats to the writer. I wonder why more mysteries can't be this skillfully plotted.
