The murderer left too many clues: An open bottle of the deadliest poison known to man was found in an upstairs bathroom...a box of chocolate peppermints lay hidden in a false-bottomed bag on the lawn...and inside the music room, the minute hand was missing, from the "unstoppable" clock.
There was even a film of the killing and five eye witnesses to boot!
Yet, no one knew the murderer, or how the incredible crime had been committed.

One of my favorites from one of my favorite authors. Carr's mysteries can be clever and interesting, or contrived and tedious. This one is in the first category. The murder takes place during a staged performance to prove the unrealiability of witnesses. And of course, everyone sees things differently. It's one of those mysteries where you'll be flipping back through it to see how you could possibly have missed the obvious clues.
