    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: Good, if you forget it's Rex Stout, July 5, 2003 Reviewer: James A. White from Livingston, TN This is a good mystery, and the clue used to trap the murderer is very a la Agatha Christie. In fact, the whole novel is a la Agatha Christie. It seems almost as if it were written to show the general public that Cramer could indeed solve a case without Wolfe's help. The story starts one month after a brutal crime has taken place. Val Carew has been scalped in the tomb/slightly unnatural shrine of his late Indian wife with, naturally, an entire houseful of guests. Cramer is called home from a Canadian vacation to solve the crime. Then he disappears for 60 pages while we are introduced to the characters, their motives, alibis, and relationships with each other. Once he reappears, he solves the crime, albeit with some help. The only problem with this mystery is if you expect it to read like a Nero Wolfe. Since that's what we primarily associate with Stout, that's what we expect from him. While this novel doesn't really disappoint the reader, it's just rather slow going because you expect Wolfe and Archie to pop up at any moment. As they never do, it's something of a disappointment, but if you just tell yourself at the beginning that the novel isn't written by Stout, but someone else, it's quite enjoyable fare. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
