A bit long at nearly 500 pages, but it never becomes boring as outlandish deaths that hark back to the methods in some of John Dickson Carr's books mount. There is a parallel plotline concerning a character named Jerry that I think could have been cut (which would have shortened the story), but all in all it was a fun read and almost made sense by the end.

Overdone characters. Preposterous plot although I will give credit for the inventiveness of the plot.
