This was a fun read, if only for the fact it is pre-Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie. As mentioned in other reviews, the language is beyond flowery and melodramatic. It made me laugh out loud at times and caused many eye-rollings. But, despite all that, it was a good suspenseful read. And if you're the mystery reader that needs it all tied up in a pretty bow for you, you definitely get that at the end! Recommended if a lover of classics.
