I love finding Winnipeg novels but Catherine Hunter clearly has American influences. Surprisingly, we do not receive the rare treat of a Canadian vocabulary. Instead of “SUPPER”, she made such repetitive use of the synonym; it appeared on every page! She should vary with “meal”, “food”, “repast”! “Cheque” and “University” weren’t used either.

Started the book last night, just before bed. Got a few chapters in and totally creeped myself out. Honestly, how you mystery lovers can read this stuff and maintain your sanity is beyond me. Or maybe you don't! Mwaa-haa-haa!

this was another very interesting book filled with twist and turns of characters and suspicion, while reading the book i had thought that most characters benifited from the events that had happend in the dead of midnight everyone was a suspect and the one whom caused the mysterous causes of death was the least suspected.

Very good read; very intriguing. Usually as many mysteries as I read, I can usually solve the mystery about 3/4 of the way through the book. This was a surprise, and the villain was totally unexpected!

to say that i read this whole book is actually a lie. i tried, i really did. i got about 2/3 of the way through and realized i don't really care what happens at the end! so i'm not finishing it. it just didn't hold my attention. i won't be reading any more by this author any time soon...

Ahhh-- one of my favorite mysteries. I read this in the 8th grade before writing a very original mansion-mystery novella for English.
