This book has been sitting in my bookshelf for several years, and for some reason I didn't read it until now. It's a standard murder mystery, but well written. I had read the other customer review here on Amazon.com before I finished the book, so I was prepared for the ending, which certainly is a disappointment. In a mystery novel, the mystery is supposed to be solved. In this book, everybody thinks the mystery is solved, except for Wycliffe, so the investigation continues, and more evidence is unearhted, making their initial theory less probably, but Wycliffe for some reason decide not to proceed with the case.
With a proper ending, this would have been a pretty good mystery novel, but it's not. You'd be better off with most other murder mysteries instead of this one. Not recommended.
