Yes, undoubtedly. I always do. First to listen to, then to see if there's any flaws or gafts in the plot. I always do mysteries.
The scene when Ellery deducted the meaning of the clue "FACE". Actually, that whole part is a bit far fetched. And I'm not going to give anything away. It's still a good tale.
No particular scene.
No, far to long for that.
Please forgive the Scottish Brough. It was intertaining. And Ellery's use of extremely big words when simpler ones would do.
Ngaio Marsh likes to do a big long build up to the murder as usual. 2/3 is set up, 1/6 is characters trying to think it out then 1/6 cops determing what happen. The usual Marsh mystery. This tale starts with a suspected enemy agent signalling when a ship leaves port. Setting is WWII New Zealand. Of course we know who it is, except others think he's stealing Maori artifacts. And everyone at the out of the way hot springs resort in turns into a detective. And of course Mr Questing the mysterious businessman/spy/artifact thief/whatever, disappears. Possibly stubbling into hot mud pit or pushed in, or staged a disappearance for a getaway. Well written, well constructed set of unique characters.
