Charming deviation from a classic mystery. Satisfy your curiosity for the macabre, mystery, and witty villain banter with this book. The fourth-wall-breaking smarminess interlaced with a quirky tale of murder makes it a highly enjoyable read.

Be prepared to guess, then guess again from a charming deviation from a classic mystery. I highly enjoyed this narrator-led twisted maze of a story and recommended to anyone who enjoys a bit of intrigue, humor, and purposeful mayhem.
