An excellent locked room mystery by paul halter.
The solution to the murder that happens inside the attic room is truly ingenious.It is just like a clever magic trick where it seems so simple once you know the trick.
And to top it,there is one more shocking twist at the end of the book as to the identity of a murderer.
