A nice combination of a mystery and a thriller that is written in an erudite manner. The drawing showing the layout of the first crime scene took me back to some of the Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie novels. Like in those novels, the author provides all the clues and doesn't conceal anything, inviting the reader to guess. While I had suspicions, I can't say that I guessed who the culprit was or how the crime was done. But when it is all explained at the denouncement, I wondered why I hadn't thought of it. All in all, a very enjoyable read. Tight plot, succinct narration and credible motivations. Recommended for mystery lovers.
