The red herrings are carefully laid to misdirect the reader but without compromising the coherence of the story as a whole. The characters are all interesting and effectively drawn and the story expertly plotted. The mysterious object missing from the murder scene kept me guessing all the way through, and Lord Peter is his usual charming/irritating self. Those of us who like this sort of thing will like it very much, and others will be pleasantly surprised.
