Format: Paperback
Ever since reading Kissing Cousins when it first appeared, I have been waiting for another Mort Sinclair mystery. Cornish Conundrum was well worth the wait. I'm a mystery fan as well as an amateur genealogist. This book was not quite so heavy on genealogy as Kissing Cousins, but still kept me guessing until the very end. If there were clues dropped regarding the murderer, I missed them all. There was a legal husband and wife swap that confused me, however, and did not seem to matter in the advancement of the story. Early in the book it mentions one of Mort's theories called Stratton's law - that sequels stink! Not so - this is a good read.

This is strictly for cerebral mystery fans who can live without setting, atmosphere and dialogue as long as the mystery is sufficiently ambiguous. There are red herrings aplenty, including a spurious digression about wife-swapping and lots of genealogy that goes nowhere. Even the many chapters spent peeling away the layers of knowledge about the first murder victim turn out to be totally irrelevant to the resolution, which comes out of left field. An unknown mystery tenant who turns out to be very important -- you won't know anything about the person's existence until the inspector and the investigator sit down to explain it all to us folks. I prefer my mystery books to give me a fighting chance to figure it all out.
