    Whodunit?

    It was a great book. It always keeps you thinking about the smallest things. You will be suprised at how much of the information you will not bother to acknowledge. The information that will lead you to the killer. I personally like the Puzzling Predicaments section. The section has at least 2 page short mysteries that will prepare you for harder ones.
