Only if you read the spoilers. @#$%. You sound like a newcomer to polite society, to GoodReads, and to reading altogether. A mature well-read correspondent would answer with manners and thorough preparation.
You did read the title? the word "Spoiler"? the sentence "Tricksy plot allows perpetrator to differ in long-running popular versions for stage or screen."? Even if you you saw elsewhere, you could not
: Thank you for your pertinent poignant observation.
I had not yet learned codes, so I
warn with word "Spoiler". Most mystery readers know people get killed; the spoiler is the murderer. The title kind of gives away the fact everyone dies until "And Then There Were None".
Agatha Christie was called "Queen of Crime" precisely because, well, shall I put this non-spoiler right up front? The last survivor may
be the killer. Or may. What a mystery.
I'd forgotten how proud I was of this review. How I did
give away the killer till the very last. Just like Agatha. Perhaps if you read it again?
That said, I will re-write appropriately. Whenever

" You sound like a newcomer to polite society, to GoodReads, and to reading altogether. "
I have added books which I've read to my profile, for your benefit.
Anyway, what I meant was (in polite words now) reviewing is not about writing a summary. It's reflecting. That's my perception, you may well paraphrase a book, for all I care. Well I do care, if you are going to spoil the reading experience with such puerile reviews. Oh, I can't be polite to you. I tried.
