Interesting and thought-provoking. The author offered many different lines of thought and suspects, although there wasn't a lot of time offered before the final conclusion was reached. The book itself wasn't too short, but the time between the suggestion of the murder and the conclusion kind of was. It would have been pleasant to have had more time to savor the possibilities. But overall, it was a pleasant book, complete with a happy ending :-)
