Mehso-so

A locked room mystery translated from the original Japanese. The book received a glowing review from Publisher‘s Weekly. While the mechanics of the locked room mystery were spot-on, the authors attempt at humor just fell flat with me. Too much juvenile slapstick for an intellectual locked room puzzle. Glad I read, but would only recommend with reservation. 3.5/5.0 ⭐️ #2019

Heatherfeather See, I would never guess there'd be slapstick based on that cover 8mo
rretzler @Heatherfeather Agreed. I like a little humor in any book, but it didn‘t work in this book. 8mo
