Mystery is so rich and masterfully plotted and constructed, and so entertaining that it would be unfair to reveal the story. Here we have a mystery of astonishing complexity and depth with an astonishing solution and breathtaking climax. We also have three-dimensional characters , a moving love story, and a wonderful evocation of the milieu of the very rich, both in the Caribbean and in Wisconsin. The author is not only investigating two fictional crimes, he is also after the greatest mystery of all: the mystery of life and death.
