My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was such an elegantly simple story, beautifully written and always moving forward.
With a scattering of red herrings and false leads, plus the thrill of knowing things the characters don’t, Higgins Clark hardly leaves me any time to try to second-guess the suspects. Of course, I did have my pick and yes, my crest fell when I was wrong.
There were still some questions unanswered – like how did The Pied Piper know everyone’s phone numbers – but these just added to the mystery. Questions in real life go unanswered all the time.
Anyone interested in studying the format for a whodunnit, this is a great turn-to story. A nice, easy, compelling read.
