Something fishy at the manor.
Noir-style mystery with plenty of red herrings.
Might have been Agatha Favourite but not mine.
I need to like my characters or at least something about them. The ending is shocking but nothing I didn't see coming. Lots of interesting characters but I just didn't give a toss for any of them. Now if it had ended with the crooked house being turned into a raging inferno which killed off all of them , I would have dragged out the marshmallows on sticks with glee.
