A good bet for Ellery Queen fans and fans of noir-ish mystery more generally. Like many a mystery, this is a bit less fun when you already know the twist -- but it's classic Ellery Queen, complete with outsized characterizations, evocative imagery, and parlor-scene reveal. It's dated, of course, especially in its characterizations of women, but that's to be expected, and it's very much a classic tale of its time.
The narration is fine. A bit stilted here and there, but all clear and appropriate for the material.
