I read this book when I was in high school. It was my first real mystery. I absolutely loved it. The crime, the suspense, it was amazing.
This is the story that got me loving books with those aspects. A great read. I highly recommend for any mystery lover. The reference to ten little Indians is great. A favorite read of mine.
