Not a mystery in the true sense, but it was interesting in a different way. No one is murdered and there is no detective trying to unravel a crime. It's more a story of an ordinary man who finds himself up against life and how a decision he makes ends up in what could be a terrible mistake. The last part of the book is more like a comic chase scene from "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" than anything found in a suspense book. Enjoyable but, again, not a mystery.
