A cute big mystery. It went on a little long for my taste. The author could of short end by a few chapters. This was pretty good mystery, locked room ..Show More »mysteries have always been my favorites. I always thought a magician made a good detective. Shows like Jonathan Creek have always proved that. The narrator did a good job with the voices. I liked Merlini voice most of all. He sounded like William Powell. I can imagine him playing Merlini in a movie Powell did a great job with detectives like Nick Charles and Philo Vance. He would of been a great choice for Merlini, if this had been made into a movie in the 30s.
