This is another mystery with a super complicated solution. The culprits had to go to all sorts of lengths in order to commit their crime, and once more, this just doesn't sound realistic at all. "Planes, trains and automobiles" could be the subtitle of this intricate construction.

It was an anjoyable read with a good country/town setting and - yet again - a great sidekick. I already liked Desmond Merrion in The secret of High Eldersham and again he was the best. Unfortunately I found the inspector rather dull and obstinate when he just wouldn't give up his pet suspect. But as he was almost a secondary character - strange to say that about the main detective -, I just ignored him most of the time.

I'd love to read more stories with Merrion, but they are rather hard to come by. Too bad!
