Whodunnit? Murder in Mystery Manor by Anthony E. Zuiker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Awesome page turner. I had to know what came next.
I have always liked the stories about how a lump of folks get invited to a super mansion for an awesome free vacation just for it to turn to murder with no escape & a who among us is doing it? Getting to know each person, well as the butler's point of view and how he became involved added a new element to the story. Each character/victim was well developed, but was still impossible for me to figure the killer. Even at the end I could not believe what was happening other than a lot of insanity. Loved it!
Each character was well developed just shy of telling who was capable of murder. I began to like the butler (Giles) and his strong professionalism as a butler who took great pride in his job even though he might not have expected it t be so gruesome and stressful.
I was pleased with the different an ingenious ways of killing thit guests. The murders were much more complex than the old days push them out of a window or stab them.
Over all it was a good mystery that I enjoyed reading as well as trying to figure out. This mystery was a good example of human nature. Some think of others, some of themselves only, some use trickery, and few are fairly decent or selfless people.
