I finished reading it this morning, and felt that I had to come on an review it. I'm not a particular fan of "Whodunnits" but I had enjoyed Anthony Horowitz's "James Bond" book and I heard him talking about this on Radio 2.
It is superbly constructed with a story within a story. The original crime novel has everything - a quaint village setting, suspects galore, hidden agendas and complicated pasts. When the detective solves the case and explains everything - it all made perfect sense.
I've now got his 2 Sherlock Holmes books and I can't wait to read them.
