I had my suspicisons about Ned Atwood, the divorced husband of Eve who re A neat murder mystery with the main clues hidden in plain sight and a snarky author s voice Dated, especially in respect to the main female characters, but I had an enjoyable time with it.
Actually seven stars, if that is possible A masterpiece This is the third time that I ve read the book and even though I knew who the murderer was I still could not put it down And when I was finished I looked at the ebook version and read the first chapter again The story is so good, so well written and so brilliantly conceived This is not an impossible crime like most of Carr s other books or a historical mystery like some of Carr s later books But it shows that he has a command of many genres of the detective story Carr also gives us all the clues to solve the mystery on our own I am a great fan of Carr and this is among his best.
