Review by

Interesting for being the first modern detective story and also for its unique form (epistolary), this story throws out all kinds of plot threads as Mr. Collins leads his reader through the mystery. There are suggestions of curses and supernatural doings mixed in with unrequited love. An enjoyable read.
