As instructed, stenographer Sheila Webb let herself into the house at 19 Wilbraham Crescent. It was then that she made a grisly discovery: the body of a man sprawled across the living room floor.


“To every problem, there is a most simple solution.”

You will be speechless when you found out the detailed of the case. For me, this case is so complicated yet that’s what makes this book worthy. There are so many things going on in this book. Some of the scenario will shocked you because you don’t expect or never even once expect these kind of lines that you have just read will happened. The plot of the story is good, although there are some chapters that I find quite boring but overall it is okay. What astonished me the most is the detective goes nowhere to find clues but only sitting by his room and done nothing except for hearing the details of the case from specific sources. Wow.

Next thing I love about this book is the characters. Well for me the characters in this series is not that well described but it’s still lovable and enjoyable to read. For the story, it is so well written and I don’t even know how can the writer comes out with such an amazing idea that no one has ever think of before. In all detective stories there might be some parts we called as ‘interviewed’ right? Usually I found this part is interesting but in this case I found the interview is quite boring. Maybe the reason is because I itched to know the end as fast as possible but there are quite a lot of interview chapters in this book. Aside from the interview part,I find the rest of the story is a truly remarkable mystery case.
